President-elect Trump says Carrier worker 'happy' after new deal

One of Trump's first decisions after his inauguration will be to nominate a replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in February.

In 1973, more than two-thirds of jobs were held by people with a high school diploma or less, according to a 2014 report by the Center on Education and the Workforce at Georgetown.

Trump could potentially get more factories to stay, says Carlos Gutierrez, secretary of commerce under George W. Bush.

Mattis retired in 2013 after serving as the commander of the U.S. Central Command. "That's behind us. We're way beyond that".

His election gave Trump considerable leverage.

But while Kanowitz largely praised Trump's initial moves as president-elect, he visibly recoiled at the suggestion that he might pick Mitt Romney as secretary of tate, saying the 2012 Republican presidential nominee was "someone we should leave behind as we move forward". "Because say what you want, Indiana".

After touring the plant, Vice President-elect Mike Pence introduced Trump to a room full of Carrier workers.

"This was where they were going to stop Trump, right", Trump said.

Carrier's parent company does billions of dollars in federal contracts - likely a pressure point for corporation to make a deal with Trump.

"We're not going to let Carrier leave", Trump said in IN in April.

Uygur correctly pointed out in the video that the devil is in the details as far as the horse trading is concerned (which apparently is $7 million in tax giveaways) for keeping the Carrier jobs from moving to Mexico as originally anticipated.

President-elect Donald Trump is renewing his pledge to build a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border during his first extensive public remarks since winning election.

Carrier manufactures air conditioners and furnaces.

"I want to let all the other companies know that we are going to do great things for business, there's no reason for them to leave anymore", Trump said from Carrier's plant in Indianapolis. He said promises of special tax breaks could be a problem.

In general, the federal government has tried to avoid implementing what's known as industrial policy in the United States. IN officials agreed to give Carrier's parent company United Technologies Corp. "It's not going to happen", he said.

At a news conference, the mayor of Santa Catarina, the Monterrey suburb where the Carrier plant is, said he had not heard from the company. As negotiations come to a close, is Carrier still moving jobs to Mexico?

For him, blame rests with elected officials who've done little to stop the wave of lost jobs.

Any changes to the tax code would need to be approved by Congress. News 18 asked him what he thought about the incentives Trump talked about in his speech. In exchange for $7 million in tax breaks, Carrier will invest $16 million in its facilities in the state. "There are so many jobs to fill".

Carrier said state "incentives" from IN were an "important consideration" IN its decision to stay put.

Mr. Trump said he plans to unify the nation after the divisive election and asked the thousands who turned out to see him to "dream big again" as he moves to usher in an era of prosperity at home and peace overseas. That's sure to get Trump's attention. "When he becomes the president we'll start providing some oversight of that".

Greg Hayes, chief executive of United Technologies Corp., wasn't there to see Mr. Trump. Sanders wins Indiana's Democratic presidential primary the following week.

State economic development officials could not immediately be reached for comment to confirm the figure.

Obama's first trip in the White House was to job-starved northern in - where his first major legislative victory, the $800 billion stimulus package, would allow the quick injection of federal dollars to help rescue Elkhart's lagging RV industry.

Trump made Carrier's plans to shutter the Indianapolis plant a central issue of his campaign.

After planning to lay off some 1,400 workers and shift some operations to Mexico, Carrier has now agreed to keep a plant open and retain around 1,000 employees. The Islamic State militant group claimed responsibility. But those jobs won't be saved, they're going to Mexico - and, some 300 people will lose their jobs.
