They did not stay because of Trump. And it’s 800 jobs, by the way, not 2000, like you falsely claim. They stay, because they get a subsidy (more enlightened folk call this a straight up bribe) for staying. In other words Trump plans to gift this company taxpayer money. What a feat. How long will they stay? Remains to be seen. We’ve had a similar situation in Germany, where Nokia was initially lured to open a plant in Bochum with a massive “incentive” in a deal over several years. When that deal had expired and the state government did not award them another deal (meaning: gift the company more taxpayer money), they moved to Romania, cutting the jobs in Bochum. Seems the exact same thing will happen over yonder.
Also, if you favour these kind of things, please forever refrain from lauding “small government” or the “free market”, like so many of your political ilk seem to do. Because this is the opposite of both.
Haha, you got that from Breitbart again?
Apart from his appaling and undignified behaviour (a president getting into a twitter feud? Really?), a look at his choices for his cabinet implies that he deserves an extremely close monitoring by the press and everyone, who wants to live in a half decent country. Certainly not “a chance”.
Secretary of the Treasury: A Goldman-Sachs trained profiteer of the financial crisis, who wants to dismantle the already insufficient banking regulation Obama put in place
Secretary of Defense: A nutjob of the highest order, who has publicly stated that he enjoys murdering people and who is in favour of war against Iran and a strong confrontational course with Russia.
Secretary of Labor: A major donor to the Trump capaign who is virtually against any form of worker protection, be it minimum wage, health care, paid sick leave.
I could go on, but I’m sure everyone already knows this new cabinet. Racists, open mysogynists (the coming president being one himself), open homophobes, creationists and, of course, climate change deniers. It is the most detestable collection of scumbags ever assembled in American history, and that is saying a lot.
If this caricature of a man ever deserved a chance, his choices for top jobs make it clear he is outright dangerous and should be as closely monitored as possible and opposed at every instance.
Can you now please fuck off again? This is a much better place without you
