The Carrier Deal, Cont.

The Carrier Deal was a political coup for Trump and you have to be glad for the 800 affected workers and their families. But over the last few days a president-elect of the United States has been openly threatening companies for making business decisions he doesn’t like–an extraordinary and disturbing thing. Much of the Republican Party will be quiet about it or accepting of it, which speaks to how Trump could transform the GOP. Even if Republicans wanted to stop him from doing it, they have no leverage to do so and Trump’s tack will probably be popular.
