Default Well this campaign promise is being broke

Okay business is business but when they vote for you after a candidate promised that their jobs would be safe. And in six months more than half will lose the same jobs that were thought to be a sure thing

I would be asking why as the anger mounted.. Please understand, I didn't write this article. It is news so I am just posting it hoping to hear from members about it and how they would feel if they were in these people shoes. As jobs are becoming harder to locate.

In December, then-President-elect Trump told hundreds of workers at the Carrier manufacturing plant that he had worked out a deal to save their jobs.
But it's not working out that way. A steady downpour today did little to wash away the fact that the jobs of 600 union employees are going south.
"They're going to Monterrey, Mexico," said Robert James, president of the local union.

He said workers felt betrayed, since Mr Trump told them during his December visit to the plant that 1,100 jobs would be saved.

"And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant," Mr Trump said. "So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number."

Blasting companies for moving American jobs abroad was a feature of the Trump campaign, and saving the Carrier jobs was touted as a sign of Mr Trump's bargaining prowess.
"You're going to have a good Christmas," he said at the plant.
Yeah, Merry Christmas.

Trump certainly took many public bows for 'saving' the Carrier jobs.

Likewise, many miners still believe Trump will revive their dying coal industry.

It's immoral to toss out empty promises for the sole purpose of collecting the votes of decent people hoping for a miracle.

Your not suggesting this is one sided are you Senior? Campaign Promises are every Politician dream and most never bear fruit..

And each party plays this game to the bone... but true
