Pledges for Trump
‘You boys know what makes this bird go up? Funding makes this bird go up. That’s right. No bucks, no Buck Rogers.’
– Gordon Cooper and Gus Grissom, The Right Stuff (film)
Things are looking up for the United States economy in 2017. You can just feel it. Something great is about to happen.
Earlier this week, for example, after meeting with the incoming President, Bayer and Monsanto announced they will spend at least half of their agriculture research and development budget – approximately $8 billion – in the U. S. over the next six years. It’s estimated the combined efforts of these two companies will add 3,000 new U. S. high-tech jobs.
Wal-Mart and General Motors also made job and investment pledges for Trump. Wal-Mart said they’ll add 10,000 jobs this year. General Motors announced $1 billion in investment, which would generate 1,500 U. S. jobs. Following these pledges, Trump tweeted:
‘Thank you to General Motors and Walmart for starting the big jobs push back into the U. S.!’
