Donald Trump isn’t president yet and we have already seen signs that companies across the world are optimistic about his economic policies.
Companies like Ford, Chrysler, SoftBank, and Carrier have made it clear that they are committed to both keeping jobs here and creating new ones.
Trump openly criticized Lockheed Martin for their disastrous F-35 program that has cost over a trillion dollars so far.
Apparently, the people over at Lockheed Martin were listening.
Check out this announcement from the CEO.
After meeting with President-elect Donald Trump on Friday, Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson said the company is close to a deal to bring down the cost of its F-35 aircraft, and will also be adding 1,800 jobs to its Fort Worth plant.
“I certainly share his views that we need to get the best capability to our men and women in uniform, and we have to get it at the lowest possible price,” Hewson told reporters in Trump Tower.
Another positive development that appears to be directly related to Trump’s election.
We will have to wait and see if it is even possible to salvage the F-35 program but Donald Trump has made it clear that he intends to make the government more efficient.
That’s something we desperately need.
