Presidential candidate threatens 35% tax on Carrier's products
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Republican frontrunner Donald Trump says if he's elected president, Indianapolis will keep the 1,400 jobs being lost by Carrier's move.
The presidential candidate told supporters at a rally in Louisville Tuesday that the company's bosses won't move to Mexico if he's elected.
Trump says the other option Carrier will face is a 35 percent tax on products it plans to produce in Monterrey, Mexico.
Trump's statements come on the same day he won the majority of GOP Super Tuesday primaries. His closest rival within his party, Ted Cruz, took home two states.
