Trump to meet with Carrier execs in Indiana
NEW YORK - President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence will travel to Indiana Thursday for an event with officials from Carrier, the air conditioning company.
That's according to a transition official.
Trump pledged throughout the presidential campaign that he would stop companies like Carrier from moving jobs overseas. His focus on manufacturing was part of his unexpectedly strong appeal in states like Michigan and Wisconsin that long voted for Democrats in presidential contests.
Trump said last week that he was "making progress" on trying to get Carrier to stay in Indiana, where Pence has served as governor.
The transition official insisted on anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the trip ahead of a formal announcement.
