There Are Economic Warning Signs for Trump in the Midwest

President Trump campaigned in 2016 on a pledge to restore jobs —
manufacturing jobs, specifically — to long-struggling Midwestern
communities, and he has made the economy a centerpiece of his
re-election campaign.

But job growth has slowed sharply this year in Michigan, Pennsylvania
and other states that were critical to Mr. Trump’s victory in 2016, as
well as in states like Minnesota that he narrowly lost.
