Bud Jackson, Chair of American Working Families, and James Antle, politics editor at the Washington Examiner, join RT’s Ed Schultz to discuss President-elect Donald Trump’s Sunday tweet in which he suggested a 35 percent tariff on companies outsourcing American jobs. This came in the wake of Trump’s much-publicized Carrier deal, which kept nearly 1,000 Hoosiers from being laid off. Critics termed it a glorified bribe to Carrier, which received massive federal subsidies in exchange for keeping its Indiana factory open. They also discuss Trump’s recent phone call with Taiwan’s president and its implication for geopolitics in the region.
