Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence, Indiana’s outgoing Governor planned to travel to the state Thursday for the first time, the agreement in addition to representatives of the company.
Details of the agreement were not immediately available. A trump card in the transitional source told Fox News that the makers of the executives went, Trump Tower Tuesday to hash out of business.
Trump spent much of his campaign pledge to keep companies like Carrier from the relocation of jobs overseas. His focus on jobs in the production contributed to its unexpected appeal with working-class voters in States like Michigan, which voted for a long time for the Democrats in the presidential elections.
In the September debate against democratic rival Hillary Clinton, he railed against the carrier of the decision to move hundreds of air conditioning jobs in production from Indianapolis to Mexico.
“So many hundreds and hundreds of companies that do this,” Trump said. “We need to stop our jobs stolen from us. We need to stop this, to leave our company, and the United States.”
During the Republican primaries, Trump said he would, said he would request that the carrier’s parent company, United Technologies reversed a decision to move two of its Carrier heating and ventilation parts plants to Mexico, which is 2,100 U.S. jobs.
The carrier was attacked, the only company Trumpf. He promised to give Oreos to the Nabisco’s parent, Mondelez International, said it would replace nine production lines in Chicago, with four in Mexico. He criticised Ford after the company said it planned to invest $2.5 billion in engine and transmission plants in Mexico.
I work hard, even on Thanksgiving, to try to stick to Carrier A. C. company in the USA (Indiana). PROGRESS – Will know soon!

Trump tweeted on Thanksgiving day that he was “trying to progress”, in order to remain a carrier, in Indiana.
Thursday’s event marked a rare public appearance for trump, who has huddled spent almost his entire term of office as President-elect, together with advisors and meet with potential Cabinet secretaries. He plans to other stations this week as part of what the consultants have in the account, as a “thank you” tour to the voters, who supported him in the presidential campaign.
