During tonight's CBS Republican presidential debate, Donald Trump was the only candidate to address the news that Carrier will be sending hundreds of American jobs to Mexico.
The GOP frontrunner said that under a President Trump, Carrier would stay and "build in the United States because we are killing ourselves with trade pacts that are no good for us and no good for our workers."
Video footage emerged yesterday, which went viral, capturing the anger and heartache of 1,400 Indianapolis workers who were informed that they soon would be out of work, as their company will be sending their jobs to Mexico. The New York Post described the video as "stomach-turning."
The company representative tried to quiet the crowd, as workers of different races and ethnicities cried out in outrage and despair. "Let's quiet down," the company representative said in the video.
Trump brought up Carrier's move to Mexico, not just once but on two separate occasions during the debate.
Early in the debate, Trump said:
I'm going to bring jobs back from China. I'm going to bring jobs back from Mexico and from Japan, where they're all -- every country throughout the world -- now Vietnam, that's the new one. They are taking our jobs. They are taking our wealth... We're going to bring that money back. You take a look at what happened just this week, China bought the Chicago Stock Exchange, China, a Chinese company. Carrier is moving to Mexico, air conditioning company. Not only the ones I talk about all the time, Nabisco and Ford and -- they're all moving out.

True, the other candidates never talk about all the jobs we’re losing to Mexico. Probably because of their pro-corporate sponsors.
Well said, Mr. Trump.
So.. you don't care? Only him?
What is he going to do for them? He’s rich enough to set every one of them up with a comfortable life annuity.
The Democrats are the fringe Party of wanna be Marxists and weirdos which naturally hates the middle class. The Republicans are the party of gloBull Big Business. The entire middle class has no political representation in the US Govt.
Another one hit out of the park by The Donald!
That’s because every single other one is very much in favor of it and cares more about Mexico and its citizens than it does ours.
Hell, two of them started the Spanish jibber jabber right up there on stage. Jeb is fluent to and speaks it at home. His Mexican wife was in the audience.
They all love Mexico, a wealthy oligarchy and a crushed down populace. They dream of it here.
Heidi Cruz on her work with the North American Union, wanted a ‘Free Flow’ of business and labor among South and Central America, America and Canada. That’s why Teddy voted for TPA.
It would have been funny if Jeb got between these two jabbering Cuban Spanish guys and acted as a translator for the rest of us.
Rubio said in Spanish before Telemondo that he would keep Obama’s illegal exec. orders.
Rubio, your a disgusting anti constitutional POS
Not everyone knows that Carrier is part of United Technologies, which also owns Pratt and Whitney, Hamilton Sunstrand, and Goodrichn Aerospace, making the company a major defense contractor.
Without repeating verbatim can you repeat the comment that were zotted out of the thread?
What happened, did Rubio pass Cruz in the polls? Maybe it’s just a fight over who can be down by less. Who knows.
it was a strange commendation for Marco Rubio.
