Last Thursday President Trump was accused by the press of boasting when he had G.E. CEO Jeff Immelt recount a story when he previously played golf with Donald Trump. Jeff said that “I have seen the magic (Of Donald) before”. For Donald Trump looked at the three of us and said “I am the best golfer of all the rich people”. Then he promptly hit a hole in one.
The real story is the the exchange occurred during a meeting of manufacturing executives. President Trump was listening to suggestions on how to bring manufacturing back to the U.S.. Manufacturing, which is really the only way to bring wealth to a country, has some challenges to overcome in this country. I am glad President Trump was listening some smart people that know the challenges, and hopefully have good suggestions to overcome them.
President Obama may have had big ears, but did he listen?
