So, the Lügenkarotte made a big production out of giving millions of dollars to a Hoosier air conditioner maker to save 800 jobs and in the process still managed to lose 600 jobs in Indiana. (From Fox News, because pump truppets can only wrap their minds around this):
By enabling Carrier’s Indianapolis plant to stay open, the deal spares about 800 union workers whose jobs were going to be outsourced to Mexico, according to federal officials who were briefed by the heating and air conditioning company. This suggests that hundreds will still lose their jobs at the factory, where roughly 1,400 workers were slated to be laid off.
Also, neither Trump nor Carrier has yet to say what the workers might have to give up or precisely what threats or incentives were used to get the manufacturer to change its mind.
Of course the truppets don’t bother with reality:
Cheering crowds greeted Trump during his victory lap through the Rust Belt this week following the announcement that the nation’s new negotiator-in-chief had struck a deal with heating and air conditioner manufacturer Carrier to keep a factory in Indiana from moving to Mexico. The agreement affected roughly 1,000 jobs and provided Trump the opportunity to deliver on a powerful campaign promise even before taking office.
The plant is just a sliver compared with the nearly 16 million new jobs generated under Obama as he guided the country out of the worst economic crisis since the Depression.
So net jobs for the head Cheeto: minus 600, after giving a company millions of dollars to save jobs. At that rate, he should match Obama’s job creation total by … never.
