Australian billionaire and manufacturing CEO Anthony Pratt said Friday on Fox Business that he is investing $2 billion in the United States because he has “confidence” in President Trump.
“We have enormous confidence in President Trump. He’s doing a wonderful job, and we think he will continue to do a great job,” Pratt said. “He’s reducing unemployment. As we saw today, the job figures show unemployment is the lowest it’s been for a decade, and he’s supporting manufacturing.”
“And that’s why we are doubling down on our investment in the United States, creating 7,000 high-paying manufacturing jobs, mainly in the Midwest,” Pratt added.
The latest jobs report was released Friday and showed the U.S. created 211,000 jobs in April, leading the unemployment rate to fall to its lowest level in a decade, 4.4 percent. The report also showed 12,000 more Americans joined the labor force in April.
