Donald Trump, the billionaire and national GOP presidential frontrunner who just won the New Hampshire primary and is polling ahead of the field in South Carolina, is seizing a major political opportunity with the news that Ford and Carrier are shipping thousands of U.S. jobs to Mexico.
In an interview with Breitbart News, Trump responded to the news that Ford Motor Company is doubling production capacity at a factory in Mexico, instead of expanding in the United States.
He also responded to the news that Carrier, an Indianapolis-based air-conditioning manufacturer, and a division of United Technologies, is shipping 1,400 jobs to Mexico.
Trump noted that his planned border wall with Mexico has “economic reasons” behind it as well as the obvious security reasons. “I’ve been telling everybody this from day one: We’re going to have nothing left,” Trump told Breitbart News.
On Friday, shocking cell phone video of workers at Carrier being fired en masse emerged. A company executive can be heard saying “it became clear that the best way to stay competitive and to protect the business for the long term is to move production from our facility in Indianapolis to Monterrey, Mexico.”
The stunned workers protested the company executive making the announcement, shouting and booing at him - some using vulgarities.
