The union president of Carrier called President-elect Donald Trump a liar Tuesday, regarding the terms of the deal to keep company manufacturing jobs in the United States.
"Trump and [Mike] Pence, they pulled a dog and pony show on the numbers," said Chuck Jones, president of the United Steelworkers 1999, which represents Carrier employees, the Washington Post reported. "I almost threw up in my mouth."
Trump last week claimed he talked Carrier into keeping 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis, but that number turned out to actually be 800 because Trump and Carrier counted 300 jobs not initially at risk of being shipped overseas.
Trump offered the furnace and air conditioning manufacturer financial incentives to save from jobs being shipped to Mexico, a move that would have saved Carrier about $65 million a year.
Jones said he was at first optimistic about the notion of Trump interjecting to help and thought he would explain to workers Dec. 1 that 550 of those jobs would not be saved.
"But he got up there," Jones said, "and, for whatever reason, lied his ass off."
