Sean Spicer: Carrier Deal an Example of What Will Happen Under Trump

The deal reached by President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence to keep Carrier jobs in Indianapolis is an example of what will happen under the incoming president's administration, Republican National Committee Chairman Sean Spicer said Wednesday.

"You heard Mike Pence and Donald Trump talk about this during the campaign," said Spicer on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. "They said they wanted to keep jobs here. He didn't sit around and wait. He's been working the phones."

Trump will go to Indianapolis on Thursday to work out the details, where he will make the announcement at Carrier, which agreed this week to keep up to 1,000 jobs from leaving the country, Spicer said.

"What a season to do this in," he said. "Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, for those thousand-plus people whose jobs are going to be kept here and their families, to know that the president-elect and vice president-elect worked so hard. They can spend the season knowing they have a job. No better present that anyone could ask for."

Trump still has a decision pending for his choice of secretary of state, and Spicer said there are many "amazing, qualified individuals" in addition to 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney who met with the president-elect Tuesday night.

Later in the morning, after his Fox News appearance, Spicer said during a press conference that the selection had been narrowed down to four candidates, reports Politico.

However, he didn't say who those candidates are.

However, Trump transition communications director Jason Miller suggested Romney and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani top the list of candidates. Others under contention include former CIA Director David Petraeus, ex-ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton, retired Gen. John Kelly and Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker.
