Carrier Breaks Jobs Deal, Trump Gives Them Billions Anyway

Carrier Breaks Jobs Deal, Trump Gives Them Billions Anyway


WHEN DONALD TRUMP WAS ON THE
CAMPAIGN TRAIL HE PRETENDED TO BE AN ECONOMIC POPULIST AND EVEN
FOR THE FEW MONTHS OF HIS PRESIDENCY HE DOUBLED DOWN ON
THAT CHARADE. I WANT TO REFRESH EVERYONE’S
MEMORY. TAKE A LOOK.>>SO WE ARE GOING TO TURN
THINGS AROUND FAST. WE ARE NOT GOING TO LOSE CARRIER
AIR CONDITIONING. WE WILL NOT WHAT THAT HAPPENED. WHEN PEOPLE IN COUNTRIES TICKER
COUNTRIES AND JOBS THERE ARE GOING TO BE CONSEQUENCES. WE ARE NOT GOING TO LET
CARRIER COME IN AND MAKE AIR-CONDITIONERS IN MEXICO, SO
THE AIR-CONDITIONERS TO US ACROSS A VERY STRONG BORDER NOW
WITHOUT CONSEQUENCE. WHEN WE EXPLAINED TO THE HEADS
OF CARRIER HERE IS THE STORY, EITHER STAY OR IF YOU WANT TO GO
TO MEXICO WE WISH YOU LUCK, BUT WHEN YOU SELL YOUR
AIR-CONDITIONERS YOU ARE GOING TO PAY A 35% TAX AS THOSE AIR-CONDITIONERS
CROSS THE BORDER. DO YOU KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN? THEY ARE NOT GOING TO MOVE. BUT WERE NOT GOING TO LET THEM
JUST TAKE COMPANIES OUT AND FIRE EVERYBODY. WE’RE NOT GOING TO LET IT
HAPPEN.>>LET ME JUST SAY THAT WAS
STRONG RHETORIC AND I THINK THAT HAD A LOT TO DO WITH WHY HE
WON THE ELECTION BECAUSE ALL HE HAD TO DO WAS CHIP AWAY
IN THE RUSTBELT, WHICH HE DID. HE TALKED ABOUT HOW NAFTA IS
TERRIBLE AND HOW ARE YOUR JOBS ARE SHIPPED OUT. HE RAN A STRONG ECONOMIC
CAMPAIGN. HE WAS LYING. BUT IF HE DELIVERED ON THE KIND
OF STUFF HE WOULD’VE GOTTEN GUFF FROM THE CORPORATE
DEMOCRATS. WE NEED A LOT MORE OF THAT
BECAUSE WE KEEP OUTSOURCING JOBS LET ME EXPLAIN. HERE IS WHERE WE’RE STARTING TO
SEE THE CHARADE FALL APART BECAUSE HE IS ROLLING OUT THE
RED CARPET. IT GETS EVEN WORSE. STILL NOT DONE WITH HOW BAD IT
GETS. LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED HERE. TRUMP GOT TOGETHER WITH UNITED
TECHNOLOGIES AND CARRIER BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND SAID HOW CAN WE
MAKE IT LOOK LIKE I AM AN ECONOMIC POPULIST WALL ME STILL
GIVING YOU WHATEVER WE WANT. AT THE END HE SAID KEEP THE JOBS
HERE FOR A FEW MONTHS, WHEN NO ONE IS LOOKING SHIPPED THE
JOBS OVERSEAS, I WILL GIVE YOU A GIANT SUBSIDY, A LOT OF
TAXPAYER MONEY AND THEN A $2.5 BILLION DEAL WITH THE
PENTAGON. THIS IS HOSE THE TAXPAYERS,
HOSE THE WORKERS ALL WHILE PRETENDING TO BE AN ECONOMIC
POPULIST OUT IN OTHER WORDS HE IS A LIAR AND A FAKE
POPULIST. AND IF THE DEMOCRATS RUN AN
ACTUAL POPULIST AGAINST TRUMP THEY WILL WIN IN A
HISTORIC LANDSLIDE.>>I HAD GIVEN DONALD TRUMP
CREDIT ON THIS WHEN HE INITIALLY ANNOUNCED THE DEAL. I WILL TELL YOU WHY. YOU HAVE TO BE OPEN TO FACTS
AND NOT JUST GO WITH YOUR PREJUDGED OPINIONS. I DON’T LIKE DONALD TRUMP, I
VOTED AGAINST HIM AND FOUGHT AGAINST HIM BUT WHEN HE
SAID I WILL TAKE AWAY TPP I THOUGHT I LIKED IT. AND HE DID. MY GUESS IS HE WILL BRING IT
BACK AND HE WILL NEGOTIATE A BETTER DEAL, AND HE JUST
SAIDÖ FOR THE MOMENT BEING WE DON’T HAVE TPP. IF YOU KEPT THAT UP WE WOULD
GIVE HIM CREDIT.>>HE’S THE PROVISIONS OF INTO
THE RENEGOTIATIONS OF NAFTA.>>DURING THE CARRIER DEAL THEY
ANNOUNCE A DEAL WHERE THEY SAID THEY WERE GOING TO KEEP THE
THOUSAND JOBS BUT WHAT TRUMP DID WAS HE SAID LOOK YOU GUYS
GET A LOT OF GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS, AND EVERYBODY CRIED
ABOUT THAT. I WANT THE PRESIDENT TO BE A
TOUGH GUY. I WISH OBAMA WOULD’VE DONE THAT. BUT IT TURNS OUT IT WAS ALL A
LIE SO THOSE JOBS ARE NOW GONE. CARRIER GOT THE TAX BREAKS
ANYWAY AND THEY GOT AN EXTRA 16 MILLION THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO. THEIR OWN CEO ADMITS THEY
INVESTED IN AUTOMATION WHICH MEANS CUTTING YOUR JOBS. YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT INSULT TO
INJURY? AND THEN THEY SHIP YOUR JOBS ABROAD ANYWAY. ON TOP OF THAT TRUMP GIVE THEM A
2 1/2 BILLION DOLLAR DEFENSE CONTRACT. ANOTHER INSULT TO INJURY, IT WAS
A NO-BID CONTRACT. NO FREE MARKET, NO COMPETITION. WE HAVE A CROOKED DEAL NOT TO
KEEP THE WORKERS HERE. IF THERE WAS KYLE AND I WOULD BE
IN FAVOR OF IT. BUT THE DEAL WAS YOU GIVE TRUMP
GOOD MARKETING THAT IS A LIE, AND LATER I WILL YOU FIRE ANYONE
YOU’D LIKE AND GIVE YOU A MULTIBILLION-DOLLAR NO-BID
CONTRACT. THAT IS DISGUSTING.>>HE IS A LIAR. HE SAID REPEATEDLY ON THE
CAMPAIGN TRAIL AND HE TWEETED ABOUT IT NONSTOP. I’M NOT GOING TO CUT YOUR SOCIAL
SECURITY MEDICARE. GUESS WHAT? HE ALREADY PROPOSED
CUTTING IT, THEY ALREADY CUT IT. SO HE’S JUST A LIAR. GET THAT THROUGH YOUR HEAD. DEMOCRATS NEED UNDERSTAND YOU
COULD EASILY BEAT HIM IF YOU JUST RUN A POPULIST IN 2020.>>IF YOU ARE A PROGRESSIVE YOU DON’T
HAVE TO LIE ABOUT THOSE THINGS. YOU HAVE THE REPUBLICANS AND A
TERRIBLE RIGHT-WING LIKE DONALD TRUMP USES RACISM AND BIGOTRY. HE IS ADOPTING PROGRESSIVE
POSITIONS TO WIN THE ELECTION. HE HAS AT LEAST SMART ENOUGH TO
KNOW THAT IT DOESN’T TAKE MUCH TO KNOW. THE COUNTRIES OVERWHELMINGLY IN
FAVOR OF THOSE POSITIONS.>>SO THEY FALL FOR THE TRAP. AFTER HE HILLARY CLINTON’S
LOSS WOULD THEY SAY? BERNIE PUSHED HER TOO FAR TO THE
LEFT.>>BUT BERNIE WAS AGAINST THE TPP
AND HILLARY WAS FOR IT. IT TURNS OUT THEY VOTED FOR THE
CANDIDATE WHO WAS AGAINST TPP AND THE TRADE DEALS. IF YOU DON’T GO POPULIST LEFT
YOU WILL GET POPULIST RIGHT AND THAT IS A DISASTER WE ARE
LIVING IN RIGHT NOW.>>FAKE POPULIST RIGHT, BUT YES.

  1. Sadly, the idiots who voted for him still think he's doing a great job. We have to seek them out and scream the truth at them.

  2. He wasn't talking all that crap when he really did go down to Mexico and he was completely scared out of his mind and he had his security guards around him

  3. What the slow of mind don't realize that a 35% tariff is not paid by Carrier. It is paid by those who buy the Carrier AC units. Since Carrier pretty well has the market cornered, then the consumer pays.

  4. But…but…How could trump not succeed with the this brilliant Carrier deal. After all, his shadow writer wrote "The Art of the Deal". Hmm..guess that explains a few things. Rather obvious the "the Art of the Deal"was a public relations idea…without wisdom or substance.

  5. The consequences Trump is referring to is.. that you get fired and lose your job to Mexico while the Company that fired you is rewarded with hundreds of millions to billions by Trump. Have a nice day Trumpturds. Have fun at the unemployment line feeling the 9 iron between your legs by Trump.

  6. To be fair to Trump, before I had ever done any studies on economics, I always thought to myself that you could just tariff people into staying in one place or buying from a certain source.
    But the second you DO start looking at anything, and seeing that you're not helping the prices for anyone, you realize that this doesn't work. The problem is, if you're running for president or you ARE president, it's too late to just start learning that.

  7. If you want a democrat win the white house in 2020 stop talking about him cause u give him free advertisement.He's gonna win again but you won't stop for the rating.

  8. The Trumpturds are all so busy worshiping Trump now that they've received their new wage hikes and tax breaks to see anything else. They'll ignore everything else Trump does including finding new ways to take tax that money .

  9. Donny lying to his base , this is not new…..  What you need to understand about republicans is either they are stupid in that case you cant blame them because they wouldn't be smart enough to understand OR they are ignorant ( while having the capacity of learning and being aware they choose not to). Lets the games begin republicans triggered in 3, 2, 1……

  10. Shouldn't this station be called the Young sexual molesters since that's what that dude is. Disgusting just like Hollywood

  11. What are the "worst provisions of TPP" that are now part of the NAFTA negotiations? The US NAFTA negotiators are trying to impose poison pill terms against Canada and Mexico.

  12. White supremacist are willing to follow Trump over a cliff, all because they like Trump because he`s a white supremacist like them.

  13. What the buffoon Trump does not understand is escalation. For example…. One day Train and carrier are selling AC units at about the same price. Train goes ahead and moves most of its operations to another country. This reduces Train's price on goods by 30%. Americans see that Train is on average 30% cheaper than carrier and they both have the same relative quality. People buy Train and Carrier profits dwindle. Carrier must then also either move to a another country, pay their workers less, or if possible lay off workers and automate the process more. Either way, carrier and both removed jobs from America.

  14. Vapid discussion here. Populism is not the answer for this country. It is always BS either from the left or the right. Trump is a fraud, but Sanders is not the answer either.

  15. you guys should read, if you haven't already, The Making of Donald Trump by David Cay Johnston. this book really exposes donald trumps character and it really makes me worry that we are only seeing the surface of how shitty of a person trump really is

  16. Think about it, there's a 130 million Mexicans. Moving the plant South of the border to a tropical region where air conditioners would be popular, thus bringing down the overhead costs, opens up a whole new market. Taxing Carrier's imports from Mexico into the US, would only serve to even out the difference in the pay rate. So Carrier gets a whole new market, and keep competitive in their "old" market.

    Trump was either conned, stupid or lied about keeping Carrier in the US.

  17. when this happen i knew that it was all BULL SHIT ( crazy ) trump was there with the little bitch pence and walking thru the planet it was a show for the TV that covered it but i knew it was all fake and jobs where going to be cut

  18. Trump is a horrible businessman. This is a horrible truth about Carrier. Follow the money with the contractors that get the contracts to build his wall. I think that is about money. Texas is famous for politicians giving contracts to their friends.

  19. you literally need to be dumber than dog shit to be fooled into supporting Trump… and it really says something about how weak the Democrats are that they lost to him

  20. This is only the start, watch the domino effect take place with these companies, those little dollar, fifty a week raise, Christmas bonuses, was jus a cover, in what will take place soon.

  21. The automation story is OLD NEWS and most aware people know about this way back when the tax deal was presented to Carrier. Trump is a lier and he's winning and getting away with it all…

  22. Who is this journalist?….He is useless at his job…get rid of him. "he was lying…giggle giggle" WTF kind of journalistic reporting is that?….

  23. Trump people surprised that trump Lied to Elected . Hes a typical politician Don't get me wrong Obama didn't do anything both democrats and republicans they are both to blame. This is a problem with America we have dirty politicians too much money involved take the money away maybe we get some honest people for public service. So sad

  24. Behind closed doors! Transparency? Why was none of this activity ever on CNN, MSNBC or other in your face TV News? This should be criminal. He lied (again) to waste our money without even telling us we got screwed after the fact. Who in Congress is going to stand up and expose all the behind closed door deals that is destroying our country? How many more deals are brewing?

  25. i'M TYPING THIIS IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE i'M SCREAMING IT AS i TYPE IT. TRUMP MADE THOSE PROMISES (RE: CARRIER) BECAUSE HE KNEW THAT HE NEVER GOING TO KEEP THEM!!!!

    He knew that all he had to was say it and idiots (like Cenk and Kyle) would buy it…"oh that's great…that's what I want a politician to say.". But anyone with half a brain knew that Trump wouldn't keep that promise because he COULDN'T"T keep it. the presidency doesn't work like that. He can threaten tariffs, but how does he implement them unilaterally?

    It rally pisses me off to listen to these knuckleheads sometimes.

  26. "I'd like to thank all the (former) Carrier employees for the helpful propaganda photo-op… and please don't forget to visit my campaign sales booth to pick up a few more made-in-China MAGA hats on your way to the unemployment line, suckers!"

  27. TRUMP earned his Won money ,, everybody ELSE got PAID to FAIL … TRUMP to this DAY has gotten 100% of his money from Real-estate , Let any Poilitician Say that !

  28. And it is statements like THIS (and many more) politicians make that should put them in jail. Look, if someone lies saying you dont look fat in jeans, well thats not too bad. But if you are someone who is LEADING the country and you get elected under a bunch of empty promises. Then that should be looked at as fraud, legally! If you TRY to pass promised legislation and fail, then hey at least you tried. But SO MANY politicians say shit on the campaign trail, and then do the OPPOSITE. THIS IS OUR LIVES at stake! It should be worthy of prison.

  29. HES SO FULL OF SHIT! He talks about companies leaving and building plants overseas. Has he closed ONE of his manufacturing plants he has overseas and brought it back to the US and create jobs?!?! Hell no. Do as I say and not do as I do.
