How Trump sealed the deal to keep Carrier jobs in the US

Hosted by

Donald Trump celebrates his first "deal" as president-elect.

When Carrier Air Conditioner announced early this year than 2100 jobs would be moving from Indiana to Mexico, Donald Trump promised that he’d either punish Carrier or prevent that from happening. Today, he and his running mate, Indiana Governor Mike Pence, are at the factory in Indiana claiming a victory. One thousand jobs won’t be going to Mexico after all. But Carrier and its parent company will send 1300 out of Indiana while getting a state tax break. Tim Carney, senior political columnist for the Washington Examiner and visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, says the corporate handout could backfire.
