Donald Trump praised Carrier for keeping over 1,000 jobs in the U.S. -- and threatened other companies that might consider leaving the country.As much as I don't believe a word that he normally says, it does seem reasonable to suppose that, but for Trump, those jobs would have left the country.
"Companies are not going to leave the U.S. anymore without consequences," Trump said Thursday at the Indiana plant where the company makes furnaces.
Trump said that those consequences would include paying higher tariffs on imports.
Carrier announced in February that it would lay off workers and move those jobs to Mexico.
However on Tuesday, the company announced that it had reached a deal with Trump to keep the jobs at its Indianapolis plant, rather than move them to Mexico.
Well done, sir.
