A Pennsylvania man who voted for President Donald Trump in 2016 told CNN on Friday that he’s bitterly disappointed in how he’s seen no progress in manufacturing jobs returning to his community.
John Golomb, a retired steel worker who backed the president in 2016 because of his promises to bring back good paying jobs to the Rust Belt, explained to CNN that Trump gave his community false hope about an economic revival during his first presidential campaign.
“We had Donald Trump come here and profess about reviving American steel,” he said. “That’s just what all of us steelworkers wanted to hear!”
In the nearly three years since the election, however, Golomb said he’s still waiting for Trump to fulfill his promises.
“When he was elected, he pulled a Houdini on us,” he said. “He disappeared.”
The retired steelworker was then asked what he would tell the president if he ever came back to campaign in his community.
“He wouldn’t speak to me because I would have to tell him truth,” Golomb said. “Where are your promises?”

Internet chomps ‘pretending lawyer’ Jay Sekulow for wasting time playing video of Pelosi passing out pens
Jay Sekulow, an attorney for President Donald Trump, suggested on Monday that the president should be acquitted at his impeachment trial because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) handed out pens as souvenirs after signing the articles of impeachment.
Sekulow made the statement on the Senate floor as a part of his defense of the president.
"Think of the history, the solemnity of what we're engaged in here in this great body," Sekulow began, comparing the Senate process with the House's handling of impeachment.
Sekulow then played a clip, not of impeachment hearings, but of the signing of the articles of impeachment. Pelosi can be seen handing out pens as is traditionally done at major signings.
John Bolton is ‘assessing his options’ and could release book sooner now that information has leaked: CNN
Former national security adviser John Bolton may now push to have his upcoming tell-all book about the Trump White House released sooner now that news about some of its contents has leaked.
A source tells CNN's Brian Stelter that the former Trump official is "assessing his options" now that it's been revealed that Bolton's book alleges Trump directly tied military aid to Ukraine with his desire to investigate potential 2020 rival Joe Biden.
"Could this book come out before [announced release date] March 17th? That certainly is possible," Stelter revealed on CNN. "But right now, Simon & Schuster has penciled it on for March 17th."
‘It’s just a lie’: CNN’s Tapper nails Trump for blatant falsehood about John Bolton testimony
CNN's Jake Tapper on Monday nailed President Donald Trump for blatantly lying about the potential impeachment trial testimony of former national security adviser John Bolton.
Tapper specifically rebutted an earlier tweet from Trump in which he falsely claimed the House Democrats never even bothered asking Bolton to testify during their impeachment inquiry last year.
"The idea that the house of representatives never even asked John Bolton to testify is just a lie," he said. "It's false."
Tapper then displayed the exact letter that House Democrats sent to Bolton requesting his testimony at their hearings.
