Donald Trump isn’t even president yet and he’s already winning for American workers.
The president-elect of the United States has secured a deal to keep 1,000 Carrier Corporation jobs in America two months before he takes office.
“We are pleased to have reached a deal with President-elect Trump & VP-elect Pence to keep close to 1,000 jobs in Indy. More details soon,” Carrier Corporation’s Twitter account reported on Tuesday evening.
The New York Times reported on Tuesday as well that Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence, Indiana’s governor, will appear at the Carrier facilities in Indianapolis on Thursday to announce the deal. The Times’ Nelson Schwartz wrote:
On Thursday, Mr. Trump and Mike Pence, Indiana’s governor and the vice-president elect, plan to appear at Carrier’s Indianapolis plant to announce they’ve struck a deal with the company to keep roughly half of the jobs in the state, according to officials with the transition team as well as Carrier.
I am working hard, even on Thanksgiving, trying to get Carrier A.C. Company to stay in the U.S. (Indiana).
- President-elect Donald Trump and Carrier have reached a deal that will keep nearly 1,000 factory jobs in Indiana.
- In the early days of the Republican primaries, back in February, Carrier Corporation told workers that the company’s U.S. facilities would be shutting down to move to Monterrey, Mexico.
- Carrier Corporation announced the deal on Twitter.
From the earliest days of his campaign, Donald J. Trump made keeping manufacturing jobs in the United States his signature economic issue, and the decision by Carrier, the big air-conditioner company, to move 2,000 of them from Indiana to Mexico was a tailor-made talking point for him on the stump.
