When the president said he bring that industry back CNN’s Vanessa yurkevich went to find out, I’m going to look at the Mill, because I got so many memories. 32 years since John golomb worked in the steel mill in Monessen Pennsylvania once the lifeblood of this town.

After all those years I had with Amil, I gave my heart and soul and there’s many men and women who did the same as I, especially in Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh area, and it’s like we were spat, which is why this Democrat voted Republican for the first time After then, candidate Donald Trump came to town have still never recovered and never will.
