On Thursday, the Democratic National Committee blasted Trump, saying in a statement: "Every American job is important, but it's clear that Donald Trump not only got rolled by Carrier, he set a risky precedent that companies can easily shake down taxpayers with the mere threat of outsourcing jobs".
Hayes said he agreed to keep the Indianapolis Carrier plant open, and invest $16 million in improvements, in light of Trump's promises to bolster business competitiveness in the United States and to take "a more thoughtful approach to regulations".
"These companies aren't going to be leaving anymore".
Even some conservatives said they didn't like the idea of an incoming administration getting this involved in negotiations to save one company, especially one with such a minimal impact on the overall economy.
November 29: Carrier says it has reached agreement with Trump to keep almost 1,000 jobs in Indianapolis.

Trump made the announcement during a post-election victory rally Thursday in Cincinnati.

He warned, "If other companies start calling Wilbur Ross and saying, 'He did it for Carrier, can't he do it for us?' then it will introduce real inefficiency into the economic system and into the decisions of investors". The company said the incentives were important, but so were Trump's promises to work with the business community on creating an improved business environment.

Mattis as defense secretary and said the good news about Carrier is "just the beginning" of the positive economic news to come on his watch.
