In President Trump's first year, nearly triple the number of jobs were sent overseas compared to Obama's last year.

During President Donald Trump’s first year in office, the outsourcing of American jobs by federal contractors picked up the pace to reach the highest annual rate on record, according to the Guardian.

A recent report by Good Jobs Nation showed that federal contractors sent 10,269 American jobs overseas — nearly triple the 3,801 jobs shipped out during President Barack Obama’s final year in office.
