Trump wonders what became of the telephone switchboard operators in the first place and why they ever disappeared.

Mar-A-Lago White House After seeing his approval rating among coal miners reach new levels he could only dream of in 2017 (49%), President Trump has decided to help America (and hopefully his approval rating) by bringing back more jobs that have since gone by the wayside like coal mining.

"When did America stop needing shepherds? You can't expect Lassie to do all the work. And what about blacksmiths? Where are you supposed to go to get a horsehoe put on your horse nowadays? We need town criers to combat fake news! Lots of people like to tinker with things, like tinker toys. So let's get some tinkers again!" said Trump.

"And I haven't forgotten you gals! I am putting out an executive order to bring back telephone operators!"
