Remember how Trump bragged about how he saved jobs at Carrier from going to Mexico early last year?
Wll, former United Steelworkers President Chuck Jones on Wednesday blasted President Donald Trump for failing to prevent layoffs at Carrier even though he has taken credit for saving jobs at the company by negotiating $7 million in tax incentives.
Carrier announced earlier this week that 215 workers would be laid off at its Indianapolis plant on Thursday. The announcement came a year after Trump claimed he had saved over 2,000 jobs by threatening to “tax the hell” out of the company if it moved the plant to Mexico. In the end, then-Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) promised Carrier $7 million in tax incentives to stay in the U.S.
On Wednesday, a group of Carrier workers and supporters gathered for a “The State of the Working Class” event to express their outrage over the layoffs.
Mr. “I alone can fix it” Trump can’t seem to fix anything that matters to the American people.
