To the Editor: The concern is the status of manufacturing and the agriculture industries in the United States.

In the United States there continues to be fewer products being manufactured.

Corporate America has been eliminating manufacturing jobs for many years in this country.

The Trump administration putting tariffs on products is not a good idea. This will raise cost to the consumer. What needs to done is to create manufacturing and farm jobs in this country.

Manufacturing is the engine driving the economy. Until there is a strong manufacturing base in the USA you will not have a vibrant and strong economy!
