President-Elect Trump is living up to his promises.




On Wednesday, Carrier announced that after negotiations with President-elect Donald Trump, “nearly 1,000” jobs would stay. A formal announcement about the deal will be made Thursday in Indianapolis when Trump and Vice president-elect Mike Pence travel to the plant.

Though I know he will have his short comings and his battles, it does this old heart good to see that he is actually helping these people.
Maybe, just maybe there is still a glimmer of hope for this country.

I can't wait to see how he handles congress and the senate. Will he prevail? Will he fail? Stay tuned in folks, for we are living in a very exciting time in history.

Good for him. When are we going to see the Trump name "made in America"?

It's easy for him to place tariffs on other companies but I'll get on my knees and start drinking from the Trump tap when HIS companies fully come back to here.

Until then...

I won't defend him till I see results. That being said, what were companies options after NAFTA and other bad trade deals?

That is a very good thought. I would have to agree with that. That is only right.


I edited because of other news. Although I know a lot of Right wingers do not like this site, I feel that I should use it, because it does best describe the situation. He does not give any details yet, but has made the statement He will give up his companies.

He has proven to be a man of his word to some people, now let ys see if he is man of his word to himself. Here is to hoping.

He has done more in his short time as Pres. Elect than the last 4 Pres. combined, IMO.

I have no idea, but 1000 jobs may have been saved if this is all true of course.

I like your enthusiasm, but we have to be real here. I am not sure what kind of President he will be, but if what he just done is any indication, it would have to be on the good side because he did help those people.

Watch the video on the link.

My hope is that there were no special deals made for just that company, and that Trump told them something akin to "don't waste your time and money, relief is coming, regulations will be cut across the board for all industries." We don't need more crony favors.

I disagree. With what that company will be doing for the good of their workers, they deserve an American Deal. If you take care of America, then America should take care of you. Please point out any flaws in my perspective, even if it is not relative to the subject.

I dont ever recall a POTUS going direct to individual companies like this.

Conversely, didn't Obama manage handing over portions of GM to China? I mean like LITERALLY (Hummer was part of it). I wasn't much paying attention to Obama stuff, but do seem to remember that from my casual scanning of headlines.

I believe we have never seen a soon to be POTUS such as this. He talked to the company and now the jobs are staying. I don't believe it will matter about who has what portion. I think things are going to change. And fast. I like it so far, but are we as a whole society prepared for such a drastic change? I do not know yet. So far it does not look like it, but then again, he is not even President yet.

If the deal involved keeping jobs in Indiana through incentives offered by the state, why didn't the Governor of Indiana, Mike Pence, do it prior to the election?

Let's get real about what happened here. Mike Pence threw subsidies at Carrier (which he could have done at any point before now) and they agreed to only offshore half the jobs.

Somehow that's Trump "helping people."

If Trump gave them some sweet insider deal, he is no better than any other politician that works out a loophole for business buddies. What happens with the next company that wants to leave the USA? Or the one after that? What about all those businesses that have been toughing it out and owners who are scrimping and saving to keep the lights on?

As far as I am concerned it is more fair and free-market-oriented to modify the rules of the game for *ALL* players on the field to open up opportunity for everyone, not just a select few.

I wonder if Trump did nothing, let Carrier move to wherever and 1000 jobs were lost, would people be b*tching about that?? The answer, as most of us know is YES. No matter what Trump will do, it will be bad in some peoples eyes.

So the 1000 jobs that are staying here, is not a good thing? Whole companies are going over seas? I will grant you it is not all the jobs, but you have to start somewhere. I think it is good that the jobs are staying. That is about as real as I can get on it. The company should get an American deal to stay in America. Am I missing anything? Please tell me.

I'd also like to point out to any Obama fans that if Trump did indeed work out an insider deal, they have no solid foundation to criticize him.

After $500M to Solyndra, loopholes to GE that allowed for $3M in tax credits instead of paying millions in corporate taxes, $490M a year to Elon Musk, using TARP to bail out the auto industry, etc... anyone who supports Obama's actions has *ZERO* grounds to criticize Trump, *IF* he made an insider deal.

You give each American company a great reason to stay here in America, employing Americans. I honestly don't see what you don't like about it. Do you not like jobs in America for some reason? I personally think they are a good thing. Keeps the economy of America strong. I live in America. I agree that it should not be for a select few. But so far Trump is the only one that I see actively and physically trying to keep jobs here. If there are others, good for them.

Well that is what negotiating is for. If he is a successful President, surely no one would dismiss that. To do that would be utterly foolish, if he is successful.
