Carrier says it has deal with Trump to keep jobs in Indiana

Trump said he could do it, and he did. Tuesday air conditioning company Carrier said that it had reached an agreement with President-elect Donald Trump that would keep 1,000 jobs in Indianapolis. The company issued the following statement:

We are pleased to have reached a deal with President-elect Trump & VP-elect Pence to keep close to 1,000 jobs in Indy. More details soon.

Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence, Indiana’s governor, planned to travel to the state Thursday to unveil the agreement alongside company officials.

Trump spent much of his campaign pledging to keep companies like Carrier from moving jobs overseas. His focus on manufacturing jobs contributed to his unexpected appeal with working-class voters in states like Michigan, which has long voted for Democrats in presidential elections.

Details of the agreement were not immediately available. A Trump transition source told Fox News that Carrier executives went to Trump Tower Tuesday to hash out the deal.

Trump tweeted on Thanksgiving Day that he was “making progress” on trying to get Carrier to stay in Indiana.

Thursday’s event will mark a rare public appearance for Trump, who has spent nearly his entire tenure as president-elect huddled with advisers and meeting with possible Cabinet secretaries. He plans to make other stops later this week as part of what advisers have billed as a “thank you” tour for voters who backed him in the presidential campaign.
