Donald Trump, President-elect of the United States, recently made a shocking move by managing to keep 1,100 jobs at the air conditioning company Carrier in the Indiana.
While some somewhat pessimistic sources have pointed out that still quite a few jobs will be lost (about 1300), the fact that Trump was able to keep almost the majority of Carrier here in our country almost two months before he takes office is quite astounding.
And, for many people including myself, this could be a sign for the things Trump could potentially achieve for businesses, entrepreneurs, and companies here in America.
Seeing as how President Obama has had big issues trying to keep jobs from moving to Mexico and other countries for the past two terms, Trump’s past in business could (hopefully) keep more jobs from leaving the country.
Donald Trump, author of countless books on finance and business, along with being one of the richest people in the world, clearly has an expertise in this field. He’s been speaking the language of the deal since the 70s and 80s, and has been a big player in the field all the way to his election, where rumors have been flying that he would no longer keep his businesses, and instead pass them on to his children. When it comes to discussing a deal, Trump may be the best person on earth.
Now, for some people, including myself, Trump being able to pull off this deal could be a great sign for his future as President. With businesses all across America flocking to other countries for lower payment and taxes, along with less regulations something has to be done.
And, if Trump could somehow be able to lower corporate taxes from their bloated 35% to the entrepreneur-friendly 15% he’s thrown around time and again, it could lead to a huge boom from small business owners and companies looking to expand.
Yeah, that’d be pretty cool.
