Look like the president was right?
Recently on MSNBC’s “All In,” Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) claimed that the US has “a national security problem” and we need to bring manufacturing of things “that are critical to our well-being” back to America.
According to Breitbart, Booker stated, “we, right now, have a national security problem with our supply chain vulnerabilities, the fact that we don’t make swabs in this country like we should, the fact that we have to rely on China for penicillin. If we had a crisis with them, we could be in real trouble. We need to bring back American manufacturing on things that are critical to our well-being, that are national security issues, and make sure that those manufacturing jobs, which are now, very high-skilled jobs, to be a machinist and others, they’re middle-class jobs that you earn a lot — a really good salary, but they need specialized training. We should really ramp up [those] kind of apprenticeship programs in our country.”
