White House Criticizes Trump’s Job Saving Deal With Carrier

After it was announced this Tuesday that President-elect Donald Trump was able to reach a deal with Carrier to keep approximately 1,000 manufacturing jobs in Indiana, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Wednesday that it’s “good news,” but criticized the achievement as nothing special and rather minuscule to what he claims Obama has accomplished in the last eight years.

Ernest said “if [Trump] is successful in doing that 804 more times, then he will meet the record number of manufacturing jobs” created during Obama’s eight years in office.

He then continues on, claiming that Obama set a “high standard” by creating more than 800,000 jobs during his time in office in addition to protecting “more than a million” manufacturing jobs in the Midwest with his bailout of the auto industry.

“The one difference would be the president-elect is talking about protecting jobs,” he said. “The metric I’m using is actually creating jobs.”

Earnest’s comments can be seen below:
