Celebrants of the recent tax bill have claimed, echoing Trump’s top economic advisors, that the massive corporate tax cut will indeed trickle down or, to mix metaphors, serve as the proverbial rising tide that will lift all boats.
Donald Trump championed the 1,100 jobs he saved at a Carrier plant in Indiana, but the real number of jobs saved was 800, and now out of those 800, 300 are moving to Mexico by Christmas, so Carrier got a $7 million taxpayer handout and still shipped jobs to Mexico.
"No analysis of anything Trump does makes sense without first acknowledging he's just a really shabby human being."
The reason the thin-skinned president-elect is so angry is because the union leader dropped a major truth bomb about Trump's recent PR stunt with Carrier.
President-elect Trump claimed to have saved 1,100 jobs at the Carrier plant in Indianapolis, IN, but workers have been notified that as of right now, only 730 jobs will be staying in the US. 1,233 jobs will be moving to Mexico.
Too many media outlets had difficulty attributing the Indiana corporate payoff to Pence and it's a sign they're still pimping Donald Trump as a hero.
The Carrier deal has turned into a prime example of the sorts of conflicts of interest that will be coming to the White House with Donald Trump. It turns out the president-elect gave Carrier $7 million in taxpayer money and he is invested in Carrier's parent company, United Technologies.
"Who would you rather have making a decision about where to make furnaces or cars? A company whose profitability depends on making good decisions, or a branding executive turned politician who wants to claim political credit?"
The cable news and business networks all run with the PR video of Trump walking around a Carrier plant, with the exception of Bloomberg TV who saw the video for what it was, non-news propaganda.
Sen. Bernie Sanders is saying what many in the mainstream press won’t. Trump’s deal with Carrier has endangered the jobs of every worker in the United States by rewarding the bad behavior of outsourcing.
Carrier played the president-elect by getting tens of millions of dollars in incentives, while still outsourcing 1,100 jobs to Mexico.
The White House responded to Donald Trump keeping 1,000 jobs in the US by dropping a huge fact bomb that showed just how little Trump has accomplished compared to President Obama.
