    Trump targets another company, draws Sanders' criticism

    Critics, including some Republicans, said making such agreements with individual companies amounted to corporate welfare and was not an effective way of keeping or generating U.S. jobs.

    Sanders, who criticized U.S. trade policy in his race against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination, said Trump's deal with Carrier set a "very dangerous precedent" of having taxpayers subsidize multibillion dollar corporations to "beg them" to keep jobs in the country.

    On Saturday, he challenged Trump over his Rexnord tweet.

    "What are you going to do, @realDonaldTrump? Stand up for working people or give the company a massive tax break?" Sanders tweeted in response to Trump's post.

    I am so sick and tired of hearing silly, ignorant, socialist fools such as Bernie Sanders spew his lunatic, left wing economic ideas which are proven failures.

    Donald Trump is trying to save jobs and all the benefits that go to government in the way of payroll taxes, corporate taxes, etc. Plus the benefits of payroll money that 300 people will have to provide for their families and spend in their communities which supports other businesses, and their employees and families. Without the company in business and able to make a profit, there is nothing there but an empty building.

    Sanders doesn't get it and perhaps he never will, that giving a company such as this a tax break, is the same thing in this day and age of global competition as standing up for working people. Fortunately this past November 8th, the majority of the electoral college realized that as well and voted Donald Trump as president.
