Trump: Working toward Convincing Indiana Company to Remain in the U.S.

“MAKING PROGRESS”

by Sharon Rondeau

(Nov. 24, 2016) — Late Thursday morning, President-Elect Donald Trump tweeted that he is attempting to convince Carrier Air Conditioning, which announced in February that it would leave Indiana and New York State for Mexico, to change its decision.

If Carrier follows its original plan, 2,100 U.S. jobs will be lost.

Trump campaigned on jobs, economic growth, national security, observing existing immigration laws and building a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

A billionaire who has developed a global hospitality and resort industry over more than three decades, Trump has prided himself on making effective “deals.”

Last week, Trump tweeted that Bill Ford, Chairman of Ford Motor Company, had decided to keep a Louisville, KY manufacturing plant in the U.S. after a prior decision to move to Mexico in 2019.  Ford reportedly clarified that the production of a specific vehicle would now remain in the U.S.
