7. I Think Chuck Would Have Been Happier if Trump Kept His Word

Trump talked about saving all of the jobs. Instead, Trump basically paid Carrier a ransom to just save a little over half, then declared that he delivered on his promises. And, it was not because of some actual policy or program, but it was a one-off deal that does nothing to fix the structural issues leading to the loss of manufacturing jobs.

I can see a Trump Presidency where he arranges 10 to 20 such deals per year, which allows him to bask in the limelight and the adulation of the folks whose jobs were saved, while ignoring the millions who do not manage to be lucky enough to be included in Trump's latest photo op.
