The Carrier employee in Indianapolis whom Donald Trump cited Thursday in leading him to get involved in saving the plant called the president-elect a "hero" and said "I believed him 100 percent."

"I would just say thank you for keeping your promise and . . . I believe in you — and today you're my hero," Will Cornett told Brooke Baldwin on CNN. "Thank you very much."

In his speech at the Carrier plant, Trump said he saw Cornett's interview on television news last week and was moved enough by his faith in him he called Carrier officials directly to try to keep the air-conditioning plant from taking its 1,000 jobs to Mexico.

"He said something to the effect, 'No, we're not leaving because Donald Trump promised us that we're not leaving,'" Trump said Thursday after Carrier officials said 1,100 plant jobs would remain in the Hoosier State.

"Because of him, whoever that guy was — is he in the room, by any chance?" Trump asked.

"That's my son," a woman in the crowd shouted.

"That's your son?" the president-elect responded. "Stand up, you did a good job."

Cornett later told Baldwin "I believed him 100 percent.

"That why I voted for him. This was a promise that he was going to make to us — and I believed in it."

As for other manufacturing workers who might fear losing their jobs to Mexico, Cornett said "I'd tell them not to doubt the Donald.

"He did it once. He can probably do it again."
