Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Donald Trump was cheered by hundreds of Carrier workers a year ago when he announced that he saved their jobs from moving to Mexico (Daily Gazette, Dec. 3).The same workers now know that they were conned by Trump with promises he had no intention of fulfilling. Carrier announced the laying off of 600 workers whose jobs Trump claimed to have saved a year ago. Instead of saving jobs, “more than 91,000 jobs have been sent overseas since Trump was elected, the highest number of jobs lost to outsourcing in five years.”Trump’s entire career consists of lying and conning people with false promises, including the Trump University students who were encouraged to take loans to pay tuition for a degree that turned out to be useless. He stiffed contractors and workers who worked on his properties.Trump had no plans to save the Carrier jobs. Trump has an insatiable need for adulation. He made the promises to the Carrier workers for the applause and cheers he knew he would receive when he stood in front of them to con them with false promises.Mark MarkovitzNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?
