Carrier staying in Indiana. Pure coincidence I'm sure.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/29/business/trump-to-announce-carrier-plant-will-keep-jobs-in-us.html

Not even in office yet and doing things Obama didn't even try.
None of this has anything to do with Trump's conflicts of interest, but:

Trump gives tax breaks to Carrier? Hero.

Obama gives tax breaks to Carrier? Satan! http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/02/15/carrier-received-5-1-million-in-obama-stimulus-cash/

There's absolutely nothing keeping Carrier from moving the jobs later after the heat is off. Hell, it's probably something they discussed. After all, Carrier has reneged on these deals before. Not just the above, but also:

Gotta love that Donnie added Propaganda Minister Steve Bannon to his cabinet. And the Righties laud the move. Yay, lies and propaganda!

Duly noted. I'm not going to get worked up into a frenzy by some tweets like the left does. Let's at least wait until he's in office a few months and see what his policies bring about. I for one have been extremely impressed with the staff and cabinet he appears to be putting together.

I have to admit that I have never enjoyed the absolute agony of so many progressive before. These next 4 years are going to be great.

In exchange for allowing United Technologies to continue to offshore more than 1,000 jobs, Trump will reportedly give the company tax and regulatory favors that the corporation has sought. Just a short few months ago, Trump was pledging to force United Technologies to “pay a damn tax.” He was insisting on very steep tariffs for companies like Carrier that left the United States and wanted to sell their foreign-made products back in the United States. Instead of a damn tax, the company will be rewarded with a damn tax cut. Wow! How’s that for standing up to corporate greed? How’s that for punishing corporations that shut down in the United States and move abroad?

Because he has signaled to every corporation in America that they can threaten to offshore jobs in exchange for business-friendly tax benefits and incentives. Even corporations that weren’t thinking of offshoring jobs will most probably be re-evaluating their stance this morning. And who would pay for the high cost for tax cuts that go to the richest businessmen in America? The working class of America.

$7 million in tax breaks to save 1,000 jobs while still taking the other 1,000 to Mexico. What a great deal made by a great man. Nice of Pence to let Donald take the credit for this spectacular deal.

Wow! That is an awesome deal. Only 7 million to save 1,000 jobs? Ask those 1,000 and their families if it was worth it.

Too bad Obama didn't attempt some deals to keep jobs here. Just think, if he'd have taken the $535 million given/lost to Solyndra; and gave some small business tax breaks, he could have saved what, 75,000 jobs?

Today Trump said "Companies are not going to leave the United States anymore without consequences."

Carrier is still leaving and the only consequence was 7 mil in tax breaks. Trump's savvy.

Yep. And once the check clears, I'm sure they'll never ever consider moving jobs to Mexico again in deference to Dear Leader. And I'm sure no other company will publicly threaten to leave so they can get some free $$$$$$. No Trump's a genius, that's all there is to it. If Obama did the exact same thing, you and Beeg would be frothing in anger.

http://nymag.com/thecut/2016/12/ivanka-trumps-business-deal-in-japan-overlaps-with-meeting.html

And to highlight the murky, political waters that are already evident, the Times zeroes-in on Trump’s meeting with Japan’s prime minister, Shinzo Abe, which was also attended by Ivanka Trump.

At the same time that the three were meeting in Trump Tower, meetings were also under way in Japan to finalize business and licensing deals for Ivanka Trump’s clothing and accessories line.

Representatives for Ivanka Trump’s company told the Times that the business deal is two years in the making with the Japanese apparel company Sanei International. Both parties also confirmed to the Times that they are “nearing a licensing deal.” But, if the thought of having Ivanka Trump sit in on a meeting with the prime minister of a country she’s in the middle of business negotiations with already seems off, there’s at least one more important detail to note. The largest shareholder of Sanei International’s parent company is none other than the Development Bank of Japan, which, as pointed out in the Times, is owned by the Japanese government.
