Dallas (US): Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Saturday said that he would bring jobs back to the US from countries like China by taking several strong steps and economic measures.
"We're going to bring back our jobs to Pennsylvania. We're going to bring back our jobs to the United States. Going to bring back our jobs, folks," Trump said at an election rally in Erie in Pennsylvania, a key swing State.
The States across the country, he said, manufacturing and jobs are way down.
"You go to other countries, they're taking our companies, they're taking our jobs," he said.
"I'll be your secretary of keeping companies in the United States," Trump said amidst applause from the audience.
Trump said Americans are tired of lies from leaders of the Democratic party.
"They're tired of losing their jobs, they're tired of seeing their companies being ripped out and going to other places. They're tired of China coming in and dropping steel all over the place to put your companies out of business, so we have to go to China to get our steel, which is happening very quickly," he said.
"And that's why the steel workers are with me, that's why the miners are with me, that's why the working people, electricians, the plumbers, the sheet rockers, the concrete guys and gals, they're all - they're with us," he added.
At another election rally in Altoona, Trump said he urged his supporters to keep a watch on polling booths in Pennsylvania on the election day.
"The only way we can lose, in my opinion - I really mean this, Pennsylvania – is if cheating goes on," he said.
"We're going to watch Pennsylvania. Go down to certain areas and watch and study and make sure other people don't come in and vote five times. If you do that, we're not going to lose," Trump said.
Trump reiterated that if he wins the November general elections, the US would be back on track of economic and military power.
"We're not going to be the people that are laughed at all over the world for not knowing what we're doing, for allowing others to come in and just strip us of what we have. We are going to win. We are going to be America first. We are going to make America great again. It's going to happen quickly," he said.
"I don't want a president who short-circuits. Is that OK? I don't want it.I don't want a president who short-circuits. We've got to deal with ISIS. We've got to deal with China. We've got to deal with lots of people. They're not short-circuiting. But I don't want somebody that short-circuits," he said.
