Trump Addresses Carrier Deal: Companies Will Not Leave the U.S. ‘Without Consequences’
President-elect Donald Trump spoke in Indiana this afternoon to address the much-talked-about deal with Carrier to keep jobs in the United States.
The deal reportedly gives Carrier $7 million in tax breaks over the next 10 years to keep hundreds of jobs in the country (though Carrier is still planning to move many jobs to Mexico).
Trump declared at the Carrier plant in Indianapolis this afternoon, “Companies are not going to leave the United States anymore without consequences.”
He lamented the “one-way street” of businesses going into Mexico, and he obliquely referred to the Clintons as he recalled NAFTA.
“These companies aren’t gonna be leaving anymore,” the president-elect said. “They’re not gonna be taking people’s hearts out. They’re not gonna be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they’re closing up and they’re moving to Mexico.”
