Trump criticizes union leader critical of Indiana deal

Trump has previously used social media to browbeat companies that move jobs offshore as well as entertainers whose acts he finds tiresome.

The employees at Carrier that are likely to lose their jobs are more than 500 employees hired after February 2005, according to the United Steelworkers, Local Union 1999, the union that represents the west side factory's workers.

In a tweetstorm sent out in late-November, Krugman said, "Nothing policy can do will bring back those lost jobs".

"But he got up there and, for whatever reason, lied his a- off", Jones told The Washington Post.

Most of that money will be invested in automation said to Greg Hayes, CEO of United Technologies, Carrier's corporate parent. "Now they're keeping - actually the number's over 1,100 people", he said, "which is so great".

Just hours after Trump tanked shares of Boeing stock with a tweet questioning the aircraft manufacturer's $4 billion contract to build a new presidential plane, Pence also defended the billionaire businessman against charges that his administration could threaten capitalist ideals.

"Trump said no companies would be allowed to go to Mexico", Jones said.

USW International President Leo W. Gerard credited the members of the union for their efforts in saving the jobs that they did by calling attention to their issues during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Pence has faced criticism from fellow Republicans for the Carrier deal in IN, where he is the governor. "I nearly threw up in my mouth".

Jones said some of Trump's passionate Twitter followers are now harassing him.

The company had originally planned to move the jobs to Mexico, but chose to keep 730 of the jobs in Indianapolis after receiving $7 million in tax breaks from the state. In return, Carrier said it would invest $16 million in its in plant.

Trump takes credit for Softbank's investment: Trump announced Tuesday on Twitter that telecommunications giant Softbank Group plans to invest $50 billion into the US economy and add 50,000 jobs, reports USA Today.

Chuck Jones is the president of United Steelworkers Local 1999 and was a vocal Bernie Sanders supporter.

"We're not going to let Carrier leave", Trump said in IN in April. Perhaps, then, Jones is one of the few people who is prepared to deal with Donald Trump.

"We're going to.automate to drive the cost down so that we can continue to be competitive", he said on an interview on CNBC earlier this week. Not with Carrier. I made it for everybody else.

In fact, Trump did make that commitment, and it's on video. "One hundred percent - that's what is going to happen".

Yet on 1 December at the factory, he said he had not meant that literally.

"I was talking about Carrier like all other companies from here on in", Trump said. The incentives were offered months ago and subsequently declined by Carrier, so it's unlikely that these incentives effected United's decision in any real way.

"Only because of your son, OK, believe me", he told the father in the room.

Trump asked if the employee he'd been referencing was in the audience.

Bray clapped that day, anyway, for the 800 that would remain on American soil. Rather, the best way to protect American jobs is to make America the best place in the world to start and run a business.
