Cenk Uygur Praises Donald Trump For Carrier Deal: Obama Would Never Have Done It (RealClearPolitics)

The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur weighs in on the deal made between the Trump administration and United Technologies to keep 1,000 jobs at an Indianapolis Carrier plant in the United States.

CENK UYGUR: “Trump talked a big game about how he was going to bully these companies, and threaten tariffs and stuff. Instead in this deal, it seems they are going to back off the tariff stuff, and instead give the company tax cuts. So, I get it. I get the downside of this.

But now let's talk about one of the things he did that was actually really positive.

He said, look, your parent company United Technologies has a lot of government contracts. If you want to get United States government contracts, you're going to have to keep some of your jobs in the United States.”
