Sanders: Carrier ‘took Trump hostage and won’
Bernie Sanders sees this deal for what it is.
“In essence, United Technologies (parent of Carrier) took Trump hostage and won. And that should send a shock wave of fear through all workers across the country,” Sanders said in an Op-Ed in The Washington Post on Thursday.
Sanders key point: If corporations want cushy tax cuts, all you have to do is threaten Trump and say “we’re moving to Mexico.”
“He has signaled to every corporation in America that they can threaten to offshore jobs in exchange for business-friendly tax benefits and incentives,” Sanders wrote.
