President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence were in Indianapolis Thursday to celebrate their deal with Carrier to keep about 1,000 jobs in IN, instead of moving them to Mexico.
Huntington factory union local president Bill Davis tells WANE-TV he could tell from the announcement of Trump's Carrier deal that it was only aimed at the Indianapolis jobs.
Hayes said he agreed to keep the Indianapolis Carrier plant open, and invest $16 million in improvements, in light of Trump's promises to bolster business competitiveness in the United States and to take "a more thoughtful approach to regulations".
"The one who is going to suffer from this is the company ... because their products are going to be more expensive", she added.
Ford could be the next company where Trump would be headed to make a deal to keep jobs in America. "So many jobs are leaving and going to other countries, not just Mexico", Trump said.
He said he remains grateful to the people of IN for helping him effectively clinch the Republican presidential nomination IN May, and giving him a almost 20 percent margin of victory on Election Day.
On Wednesday, Trump said he would nominate former Goldman Sachs banker Steven Mnuchin to lead the Treasury Department.
The Trump team hailed the agreement as a "big win".
Indiana State AFL-CIO President Brett Voorhies noted that saving jobs is always a good thing.
Carrier owner United Technologies had planned to close operations at its plant to Mexico by 2019, as well as a UT factory in IN with 700 workers.
It's not clear that Trump would have similar leverage over a different firm in a different state.
Paul Nuttall - can he save UKIP?
A year ago he told the Tablet: "On moral issues, we, more than any other political party, are more in line with Catholic thought". Diane James was initially elected to replace Farage in September but had to resign 18 days later.
Trump and aides called the tour a chance for him to thank the voters who put him in office, though some analysts questioned whether they are a waste of time that could otherwise be devoted to the massive task of putting together a presidential administration.
Trump said companies are not going to leave the USA anymore "without consequences".
President-elect Donald Trump says he has narrowed his choice for a Supreme Court nominee "down to probably three or four candidates".
The White House avoided outright criticism of Trump's effort, but it did express skepticism about the strategy of keeping jobs on American soil, one company at a time. The HVAC manufacturer had planned to close operations in IN and move thousands of jobs to Mexico.
But even as Democrats criticized Trump, some members of the party said the GOP President-elect deserves credit.
At his campaign stop in OH, the NY billionaire announced that he would be tapping retired U.S. Marine Gen. James N. Mattis as defense secretary and said the good news about Carrier is "just the beginning" of the positive economic news to come on his watch.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations accused Trump of seeking to exploit the "tragic situation in OH".
Carrier has announced that it will preserve more than 1,000 jobs and continue to manufacture gas furnaces in Indianapolis.
"Trump said America would start winning again and we just won".
"Every single day, you will be the agents of change, change for our country, but good change, great change", Mr. Trump said at a postelection rally in Ohio.
The filings also show 960 workers employed by five companies in IN are set to lose their jobs being U.S. companies seemingly can not compete with cheaper imported goods. "Part of this is the president picking individual groups of workers and saying, "I will help them" without a sense of what that does to the economy as a whole". The Washington Post reported Thursday that Trump has decided on retired Marine general James Mattis, 66, to head the Pentagon.
