Trump Tweets About Indiana Company Relocated to Mexico Minutes After NBC News Report

President Donald Trump may or may not be live-tweeting his TV watching experience this evening.

Hours after congratulating French president-elect Emmanuel Macron, Trump decided to post this tweet seemingly out of nowhere:

NBC’s Bradd Jaffy took notice of Trump’s tweet, and he has a pretty good idea of what inspired the president’s new message to the Twitterverse:

Kate Snow is hosting Sunday’s NBC Nightly News, and tonight’s show featured a segment about Trump’s promise to bring jobs back to America while stopping them from being outsourced. The show specifically focused on how hundreds of people are being laid off because Rexnord decided to shut down their plant in Indianapolis and relocate its operations to Mexico.

Trump previously blasted Rexnord for the decision back in December. In the past, Trump has taken shots at NBC as part of his regular slams against the political media.
