This reputed business genius appears to know nothing about business
This anti tax, anti government genius just gave away $7 million of tax dollars (per year?) to Carrier with no guarantee of anything in return, and at best to attempt to 'secure' 800 jobs of the >1400 that were being transferred, and this deal apparently exempts Carrier from the 35% import tax he's threatened other businesses with.
The "best people, the smartest people" that are supposed to be advising Trump apparently don't understand the American political system either, as they've given Trump the idea that he's emperor, not president, and can create and erase laws on a daily basis by himself based on his whim at the time.
We're in serious trouble.
