First, there was the Carrier deal that saved almost a thousand jobs in Indiana. Then, SoftBank said they were going to invest $50 billion in the U.S., and create 50,000 jobs. Now, President-elect Donald J. Trump says that the telecommunications company Sprint is going to bring back 5,000 jobs, with OneWeb adding 3,000 jobs with their new venture (via Reuters):

I was just called by the head people at Sprint and they are going to be bringing 5,000 jobs back to the United States, they are taking them from other countries," Trump told reporters outside his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

"And also OneWeb, a new company, is going to be hiring 3,000 people. So that's very exciting," he added.

As President Obama makes his exit, small business owners’ optimism is at its highest in eight years, with consumer confidence hitting a 15-year high.
