Mike Pence says Donald Trump kept jobs promise in Lordstown plant that used to employ thousands

LORDSTOWN, Ohio – Republican Vice President Mike Pence, appearing Thursday at the unveiling of the Lordstown Motors all-electric truck, said Republican President Donald Trump had kept all of his promises to Ohioans.

The vice president’s remarks – delivered in a factory that employed thousands of workers just more than a year ago – are a somewhat stunning boast given Trump’s 2017 promise to a Youngstown crowd that jobs would be returning to the area in droves. By last year, General Motors had closed its Lordstown facility, leaving thousands out of work.

Yet Pence’s overarching message was just that during the 30-minute address. The vice president said Trump had delivered on combating the coronavirus, renegotiating trade deals and building the economy.

“Every single promise, President Trump delivered for the people of Ohio,” Pence said.

Pence is hard-selling the snake oil.

5. What a liar good jobs were replaced with some shitty jobs...

My son who made good money is now in Indiana thank God. with the GM plant in Fort Wayne. Trump Killed Lorsdstown with the China trade crap...it would have stayed open longer had that not happened.I do think with cars tanking, it would have closed eventually. But he was really nasty about it and blamed the union. Hubs retired from GM a couple of years ago. He started there right after college.
