Ford Then Carrier and Now Masa Trump's on a Roll

American businesses are waking up to the “Trump  barrier”
No one should doubt his resolve to bring jobs back, just ask Carrier
Carrier was set to close a plant and move it to Mexico
Ignoring the state incentives as it prepared to pack up and go
Trump wins and I suspect a phone call to the parent
And Carrier would soon its moving desires relent
Its parent is a defense contractor with billions of defense contracts always at stake
Stick of defense contracts and carrot from Pence equals moving to Mexico a big mistake
Trump is a deal junkie and loves the art of the deal and the walk away
With Carrier and Ford we have seen that focus displayed
Not to be outdone another Trump surprise compliments of Masa’s announcement from Trump Tower
A pledge to invest $50 billion in the U.S. and to 50,000 jobs creates another example of the Bully pulpit power
And a realization that under Trump, the merger of T-Mobile and Sprint would have a chance
Under Clinton like Obama no way would that merger beyond square one advance
A couple of announcements do not a recovery make
But betting against Trump’s pledge to make America great again is  a big mistake
Cutting taxes and dumping onerous regulations into the trash
Could mean even from the Madonna’s of the world a lessening of the celebs’ Trump bash
