Making America Greater Than Ever Before -- Amazon To Build First Air Cargo Hub -- January 31, 2017

The press and US politicians cannot keep up with this.

Seventh full business day for President Trump: Amazon.com plans first air cargo hub; facility at Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky Airpot to create 2,000 jobs.

Wall Street Journal.

UPS reported earnings today.

UPS is toast.

Cancels Trump visit; doesn't want to deal with protestors. Wow. And these guys sell motorcycles to Hell's Angels.

Sounds like another company run by cupcakes and snowflakes.

Remember the video of Donald Trump during the campaign hoofing it across divided highways to reach a rally where protesters had blocked his way?

Maybe Trump can invite the Hell's Angels to the White House.

Speaking of Cupcakes, Snowflakes, and Hypocrites
