Toyota announced a $13 billion investment in the United States over the next 5 years, exceeding their previous commitment to invest $10 billion in the same time frame.
Today Toyota announced it will be expanding its production in the United States, investing a total of $13 billion in the country over the next five years. The automotive company had previously pledged to invest $10 billion, and now plans even more investment.
States receiving new or expanded manufacturing plants include Alabama, Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
Toyota’s North America chief executive officer, Jim Lentz, said that “These latest investments represent even more examples of our long-term commitment to build where we sell,” and added that this will allow the company to “better serve our customers and dealers and position our manufacturing plants for future success with more domestic capacity.”
President Donald J. Trump credited his carefully negotiated USMCA, designed to replace the failed NAFTA, which incentivizes manufacturers to invest in the United States instead of Mexico or other parts of the globe, tweeting that “The USMCA is already fixing the broken NAFTA deal.”

Last year it was noted by Investor’s Business Daily that President Trump’s economy is creating manufacturing jobs 10 times faster than President Barack Obama’s economy.
On October 5, 2018, the Department of Labor released its national jobs report for September, showing unemployment had hit a 49-year-low at 3.7% with 134,000 jobs added last month of which 18,000 were in manufacturing.
Of note, in the 21 months since his inauguration, President Trump’s deregulatory policies and historic tax cuts have led to a manufacturing resurgence, with 396,000 jobs added. In fact, the pace of manufacturing job growth over the past 21 months of President Trump’s leadership is more than 10 times that of President Obama’s last 21 months in office.
The former president famously told conservatives that these jobs were gone and could never return to the United States, and poked fun at President Trump’s ambitious plan to expand American manufacturing, asking if he had a magic wand to restore the jobs.
As Biden Eyes “Transition Away” From Fossil Fuels, Pennsylvania is Second-Largest Natural Gas Producer in US
Destroying Pennsylvanian jobs.
Joe Biden’s announcement that he plans on a “transition away” from the use of fossil fuels as an energy source may not go over smoothly with the people of Pennsylvania- a state that has scored as the second largest producer of natural gas anywhere in the country.
Joe Biden admitted at the Thursday debate that he plans to “transition away from the oil industry,” citing pollution.

The United States Energy Information Administration identifies a considerable 20.0% of national natural gas production as coming from the state of Pennsylvania, making it the second biggest producer behind Texas. The state punches well above its weight in doing so, producing almost as much natural gas as Texas despite having less than half of its population.
Biden has sought to dismiss his track record of support for the banning of fracking oil extraction, employing a similar thinly veiled rhetorical trick by stating he’d only decline to allow any new fracking.
The energy industry continues to be a source of gainful, family-supporting employment for over ten million Americans. It’s not an option to “transition away” from the use of fossil fuels in the immediate future- a fact Biden tacitly admitted to after the debate suggestion, perhaps indicating that he realized the political folly of the statement.
Biden also said he’s talking about “getting rid of the subsidies for fossil fuels. But we’re not going to get rid of fossil fuels for a long time.”

A study from the American Petroleum Industry indicates that more than 322,000 Pennsylvanians are employed by the natural gas industry that Biden wants to transition away from.
Pennsylvania is shaping up as the most critical swing state in the election, and in nearly every plausible election night scenario the winner of the state’s 20 electoral votes secures the 270 needed to win the election.
Perhaps Joe Biden should transition away from national politics, and leave policy answers relating to carbon emissions, the environment and a strong energy industry to those more considerate of the role of the natural gas industry in Pennsylvania and around the country.
