Trump kept his Carrier promise, but at what cost? Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Everyone is trying to stop Carrier from moving jobs to Mexico.

Earlier this year, the air conditioner and furnace giant, along with its parent company United Technologies, announced that it planned to relocate operations currently headquartered in Indiana to Mexico over the next three years, potentially moving more than 2,000 American jobs in the process.

If the company were to move, it would epitomize the very economic harms that Donald Trump campaigned against. He called Carrier out by name on the campaign trail, arguing that its plans to shift jobs out of the United States is an example of the failure of trade agreements like NAFTA.

So the president-elect is now in the middle of negotiations with the corporate giant in an effort to keep the jobs on U.S. soil. He’s not the only lawmaker interested in halting Carrier’s plans: Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has also promised to take action. But the two men are considering very different strategies when it comes to halting the offshoring of American jobs, and Trump appears to be backing away from striking promises he made during the campaign.”
