You're conveniently ignoring that your original claim "that manufacturing jobs have hit a multi-decade high" is pure bullshit.
As for the newly revised claim, not really.
The overall market is growing, and naturally manufacturing is growing along with it. The fraction of manufacturing jobs of the overall workforce has not increased significantly - it's near an all-time low as far as the stats go -, so it's not a sound conclusion to claim he's adding manufacturing jobs specifically.
You can claim that the Trump administration has sustained the pre-existing growth
