Bernie Sanders Pushing Emergency Legislation That Will Do THIS To Trump

By  | 

During the campaign, Donald Trump promised American voters he would bring overseas manufacturing jobs back to our country.

This is despite the fact that he and his family manufacture their various products in countries like Mexico and China, and have no plans to change. Bernie Sanders decided to stick it to Trump on his hypocrisy.

Trump is still making promises. He tweeted recently, “I am working hard, even on Thanksgiving, trying to get Carrier A.C. Company to stay in the U.S. (Indiana). MAKING PROGRESS – Will know soon!” This hollow attempt isn’t enough for Bernie, who wrote, “Let’s be clear: it is not good enough to save some of these jobs. We cannot rest until United Technologies signs a firm contract to keep all of these good-paying jobs in Indiana without slashing the salaries or benefits workers have earned. United Technologies is not going broke. Last year, it made a profit of $7.6 billion and received over $6 billion in defense contracts. It has also received more than $50 million in corporate welfare from the Export-Import Bank and very generous tax breaks.”

Bernie added, “I call on Mr. Trump to make it clear to the CEO of United Technologies that if his firm wants to receive another defense contract from the taxpayers of this country, it must not move these plants to Mexico. In February, Carrier and UTEC announced that it would be closing two plants in Indianapolis and Huntington, Indiana shipping 2,100 jobs to Monterrey, Mexico, where workers are paid just $3 an hour. Both of these plants are owned by United Technologies. President-elect Trump made a promise during the campaign that he would prevent all of these jobs from being shipped overseas. The Outsourcing Prevention Act would make sure that Donald Trump keeps this promise…” Do you support Bernie’s legislation?
