THE RUBES ALREADY SERVED THEIR PURPOSE:

Those Carrier jobs Donald Trump saved? They'll soon be done by robots. (The Week, 12/09/16)

 It turns out, even those 800 jobs won't all stay in Indianapolis for long, according to the CEO of Carrier's parent company, United Technologies, and the reason is the other part of the Trump-brokered deal.

"We're going to make a $16 million investment in that factory in Indianapolis to automate, to drive the cost down so that we can continue to be competitive," United Technologies CEO Greg Hayes told CNBC's Jim Cramer this week. "Now, is it as cheap as moving to Mexico with lower-cost labor? No. But we will make that plant competitive just because we'll make the capital investments there. But what that ultimately means is there will be fewer jobs." 

Anyone who voted for Donald based on anything he said deserves exactly what they're going to get.
