President Donald Trump unveiled his new slogan,"Keep America Great” at his campaign rally yesterday in Elkhart to a welcoming crowd. Protesters across the street however, had other thoughts about the president’s impact.

 

President Donald Trump’s supporters waited outside of the Elkhart middle school venue for hours before the rally. And they got an earful of chants against the president.
 

Retired union leader Chuck Jones believes President Donald Trump has not kept his promises to Hoosier workers. Jones’s statements come ahead of the president’s Thursday visit to Elkhart, a city that depends heavily on manufacturing jobs. 

According to Jones, Indiana residents don’t have to look further than the lost jobs at the Carrier plant in Indianapolis to see the President’s impact on Hoosier jobs.

While Jones said he appreciated the president making jobs a central campaign issue, he argues not much more has been done for workers since.
