Criticizing the Carrier Deal, Shows Why Democrats Lost

One thousand jobs saved by a man who has yet to take the oath of office has Democrats reeling in agony. Most notably, Larry Summers, predicted "Trump’s Carrier deal could permanently damage American capitalism".  This former Clinton appointee and Obama economics advisor, also just following Trump's win, warned that a "badly designed" infrastructure plan "will only hurt the working class".  So, there you have it, Trump's focus on jobs is bad for capitalism and bad for America's working class.

And, it doesn't stop there. Dozens of left-leaning media types are pumping out negative commentaries as noted by these samplings of headlines that appeared in one "positive" from Investor's Business Daily (IBD):

"Trump's Carrier Victory Is the Economy's Loss"
"Trump's Carrier deal is right out of Putin's playbook"
"Is Trump's Deal With Carrier A Form Of Crony Capitalism?"
"Trump Cheered for Carrier Deal Even as Other Jobs Are Trimmed"
"Bernie Sanders: Donald Trump 'Has Endangered' U.S. Jobs With Carrier Deal"
Even the White House chimed in by claiming that this is just a fraction of the manufacturing jobs created by Obama, which, by the way, is a complete lie, since under Obama, more than 300,000 manufacturing jobs just went poof!  And, in the latest employment report, another 4,000 manufacturing jobs were lost. How does that square with Trump saving 1000 Carrier jobs? Or, the promise by Obama that he would create 1 million manufacturing jobs in his second term. 

My take on all the criticism of Trump and the Carrier Deal by Democrats is somewhat different.   I think that all the negative commentary only shows that Democrats really don't care about the American worker.  Instead it's all about sparring over politics.  Trump won on a pro-worker agenda and the Carrier deal was just a part of it.  This is why Trump won so many blue collar votes. The Democrats just don't get that.
