Bernie Sanders: Trump Got Duped On Carrier Deal

Sanders points out that “In exchange for allowing United Technologies to continue to offshore more than 1,000 jobs, Trump will reportedly give the company tax and regulatory favors that the corporation has sought.”

Trump previously said Carrier should pay a “damn tax” and that companies who want to take their business offshore and sell their products back to Americans should face tariffs. Sanders notes, “Instead of a damn tax, the company will be rewarded with a damn tax cut. Wow! How’s that for standing up to corporate greed? How’s that for punishing corporations that shut down in the United States and move abroad?”

Sanders goes on to point out that now that Trump caved in to Carrier, companies will now line up to get the same sort of corrupt sweetheart deal.

He adds, “Trump has endangered the jobs of workers who were previously safe in the United States. Why? Because he has signaled to every corporation in America that they can threaten to offshore jobs in exchange for business-friendly tax benefits and incentives.”

3. Yes, its all about BS for the drumphers

They will believe anything he tells them.

He's destroying the economy with his puerile antics and they think he's a business genius.

Down the toilet we go.

4. Does anyone really think this deal was worked out in 11 days?

 

I suppose he's responsible for the Cubs winning the World Series also.

6. We all got duped.

Trump got the usual fawning praise from the impartial liberal media.
