Are you sick of winning yet, America? Donald Trump sure isn’t.
According to Fox News, Trump announced Wednesday his latest job-saving move — a total of 8,000 jobs through two separate ventures.
CNBC reported that telecom company Sprint will bring 5,000 jobs back to the United States. In a separate move, USA Today reported that satellite internet startup OneWeb would also be creating 3,000 new jobs in the U.S.
The deal “was done through” SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son. The Japanese billionaire had previously announced that he would be creating 50,000 new jobs through $50 billion in investment in the United States. Son also owns Sprint’s parent company.

“Because of what’s happening and the spirit and the hope, I was just called by the head people at Sprint and they’re going to be bringing 5,000 jobs back to the United States and taking them from other countries,” Trump told reporters in Florida at his Mar-a-Lago resort.
“They’re bringing them back to the United States and Masa and some other people were very much involved in that so I want to thank them. And OneWeb, a new company, is going to be hiring 3,000 people and that’s very exciting.”
“The 5,000 jobs announced today are part of the 50,000 jobs that Masa Son (Masayoshi Son, founder and CEO of SoftBank) announced a few weeks ago, but these jobs will be funded by Sprint,” a spokesman for Sprint said.
Yesterday’s announcement came after two major job-saving announcements previously — the SoftBank deal and the Carrier deal, which were trumpeted as saving about a thousand jobs.
Now, here’s the important question: Where was all of this during the Obama administration? After all, we heard him bragging about how many jobs he created. Yet, we never saw anything like this.
One thing is for sure, though — the president-elect isn’t tired of winning. Please like and share on Facebook and Twitter if you agree that’s a good thing.
