Donald Trump isn’t wasting any time. Much to the chagrin of his critics, the president-elect has already made a deal to keep Carrier Air Conditioning from moving a manufacturing plant to Mexico – thus fulfilling a campaign pledge that everyone said was just hot air. And now his spokespeople are saying that the Carrier deal is a sign of things to come.
The air conditioning company announced Tuesday that they had struck a deal with Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence that would keep “close to 1,000 jobs” in Indianapolis. Staffers in the Trump transition team say the deal proves that the billionaire means to keep his word to the American people, and they insist that Carrier is just the tip of the iceberg. Using similar negotiations, executive actions, and the presidential bully pulpit, Trump will stop American companies from outsourcing their production to countries like China and Mexico.
“This is the power of the presidency, this is the power of a team coming in that is so focused on our economy and helping to create and save American jobs, to protect American jobs that are here, this saves 1,000 jobs, this is huge,” said Trump spokesman Jason Miller.
In an interview with Fox News, Miller said we should stay tuned for more exciting developments.
“It’s not just here with Carrier, we’re going to see some future announcements as well, with some other companies that are already working behind the scenes,” he said. “This is fundamentally going to help our manufacturing industry and so many other industries.”
The liberal media is, naturally, going to downplay the significance of this remarkable achievement with their usual cynicism. No matter. This is the kind of feat that stands above criticism. Trump said he would do it…and he did it. And he did it before even taking office! That’s amazing, and no amount of left-wing snark can make it any less amazing.
