Donald Trump boasts that his "America First" trade and economic policies are bringing well-paid manufacturing jobs back to America.Is this claim true?Trump won the presidency partly because he voiced the anger of American workers about lost jobs and stagnant wages.Trump campaigned on a false argument that global trade was taking away American jobs.The numbers show that Trump and Bannon are fighting the wrong battle.Robots are taking most of the disappearing American jobs, not foreign workers. Rather than helping displaced blue-collar workers, Trump's promises of restoring lost jobs could leave them unprepared for the much bigger wave of automation and job loss that's ahead.To see how Trump is mislabeling the causes of workers' anger, take a look at job losses in various industries.Perhaps worse, Trump is giving people reasons to avoid the job retraining that would prepare them for the next tsunami of automation, which consultants predict could destroy more than half of all current jobs.
