Donald Trump is technically the President-Elect, but he’s already making more real progress than Obama ever has.
With what he just pulled off, many are wondering why America should wait until January, but Donald is showing that a title and a desk isn’t necessary to get things done.
One major American company, Carrier, announced its plans to move its air-conditioner business to Mexico earlier this year. But Trump has clearly beeing using his Art of the Deal on them. From the New York Times:
On Thursday, Mr. Trump and Mike Pence, Indiana’s governor and the vice-president elect, plan to appear at Carrier’s Indianapolis plant to announce they’ve struck a deal with the company to keep roughly half of the jobs in the state, according to officials with the transition team as well as Carrier.
Mr. Trump will be hard-pressed to alter the economic forces that have hammered the Rust Belt for decades, but forcing Carrier and its parent company, United Technologies, to reverse course is a powerful tactical strike that will rally his base even before he takes office.
Yes, New York Times, Donald Trump will be hard pressed to turn around an economy that has been hammered by liberal policies for the last 8 years, but if anything can convince America this crisis can be turned around, it is definitely this.
In exchange for keeping the factory running in Indianapolis, Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence are expected to reiterate their campaign pledges to be friendlier to business by easing regulations and overhauling the corporate tax code. In addition, Mr. Trump is expected to tone down his rhetoric threatening 35 percent tariffs on companies like Carrier that shift production south of the border.
Donald Trump is not making shady deals in smoke-filled rooms to get this done. He is forecasting his policies to get the economy going, and people know that unlike most Republicans, Trump has no intention of reneging on his promises. This already has companies keeping their work here, and many more will come back with jobs and boost this economy in a way we haven’t seen in decades.
