Days after president-elect announced the deal with Carrier to keep 1,100 manufacturing jobs in the United States, he comes up with another brilliant plan on saving America. He is going to slap a 35% tax on companies that moves production or jobs out of the states.
“The U.S. is going to substantially reduce taxes and regulations on businesses,” Trump tweeted. “But any business that leaves our country for another country, fires its employees, builds a new factory or plant in the other country, and then thinks it will sell its product back into the U.S. without retribution or consequence, is WRONG!
“There will be a tax on our soon to be strong border of 35% for these companies … Please be forewarned prior to making a very expensive mistake! THE UNITED STATES IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS.”
