Mark Levin raved about the deal announced today between Trump, Pence and Carrier to keep jobs from moving out of America.
Levin makes a jab at Stephen Moore who earlier castigated conservatives, telling them the age of Reagan is over and that we should embrace Trump’s new populist economics. I wonder how far Trump is going to be able to run with this, but he’s certainly celebrating today:

We are pleased to have reached a deal with President-elect Trump & VP-elect Pence to keep close to 1,000 jobs in Indy. More details soon.

From USA Today:
Nearly nine months after announcing it would relocate its Indianapolis operations to Mexico, Carrier has reached an agreement with the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump to keep nearly 1,000 jobs in the city. The company confirmed its plan on Twitter.
Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence are scheduled to appear in the city Thursday for a formal announcement, according to a transition official who requested anonymity. Another source, who is familiar with the plan, said state incentives are part of the deal.
Carrier in a statement said it is “pleased to have reached a deal … to keep close to 1,000 jobs in Indy.”
The company’s decision is perhaps the first major victory for Trump since he was elected president earlier this month. Trump campaigned on keeping manufacturing jobs in the U.S. and promised he would persuade Carrier to stay in the city — or punish the company if it refused.
Everyone is excited, but Trump has a way of exaggerating his victories while hiding the details that would deflate his image before the public. I’d like to see just what he promised in return for this announcement.
