competitive. to reduce taxes and roll back regulations. to put american jobs and american workers first again. he made the case for america. and carrier decided to bet on a brighter future for the american people, and we are grateful from the bottom of our hearts. i'm very humble to me standing before you today, i truly am. my family and i are deeply moved by the opportunities the people of indiana have given us, and now the american people have given us to serve. but i'm especially humble to have played some small role in this wonderful news, not only here in indiana but contracts -- across the country. but it's ponders to give credit where credit is due itch -- i
want to think greg hayes and carrier. thank you for renewing your commitment to the people of the united states of america. i also just want to thank the great carrier team here in indianapolis. and in the state of indiana. your hard work, your resilience, your work ethic, even in disappointing times, i know for a fact gave this company the confidence to double down on the future of this company and the future of the people of this state, and so i thank you, the carrier team, for giving them the confidence to do just that. but lastly, on behalf of all the
people of indiana, allow me to thank the man we wouldn't be here without. for his efforts. for picking up the phone. for keeping his word. his efforts to bring to us this day of renewed hope and promise, not just here in indiana but for people that know that the strength of this country comes in our ability to make things and to grow things. it's a renewed day for manufacturing in america. i remember when donald trump was running for president, he said that if he was elected president of the united states, america would start winning again. well, today america won. and we have donald trump to thank. and i got a feeling, working
beside this extraordinary man, this is just the beginning. of a lot more good news. all across america. so, without any further adieu, my fellow hoosiers, it is my high honor and distinct privilege to introduce to you a man of action, a man of his word, and the president-elect of the united states of america. donald trump. [cheering] >> thank you, everybody. thank you very much. thank you very much. i love that red hat. thank you, everybody. i want to thank all of the dignitaries that are with us today. we have a whole host.
the mayor, and governor-elect, great people. a big victory for the governor-elect. he won very convincingly so very proud of him. and mike has been such a wise decision for me, when people were saying i don't know, how good is he at decisionmaking, but say but he picked mike pence. that's a good decision. and everybody loves mike. he's become something very special. i want to thank greg hayes of the united technologies because when i called him, he was right there. i wish i could have made the call when they were doing their original decision but it worked out just as well other than i would have liked to have had an answer a year and a half ago. we had a tremendous love affair with the state of indiana. because if you remember during the primaries this was going to
be the fire wall, where they were going to stop trump. right? and that didn't work out too well. and it was a fire wall for me. and we won by 16 points, and the election we just won by 20 points, almost 20 points, and that was some victory. that's pretty great. and i just love the people, incredible people. so, i got involved because of the love affair i've had. this has been a very special state to us. and i'll never forget about a week ago, watching the nightly news. i won't say which one. but i want to give them credit because i don't like them much, i'll be honest. i don't like 'em. not even a little bit. but they were doing a story on carrier. and i say, wow, that's something. want to see that. and they had a gentleman, worker, great guy, handsome guy.
he was on. and it was like he didn't know they were leaving. he said something to the effect, we're not leaving. because donald trump promised us that we're not leaving. and i never thought i made that promise. not with carrier. i made it for everybody else. i didn't make it really for carrier. and i said what is he saying? and he was such a believer. he said i've been with donald trump from the beginning. and he made the statement that carrier is not going anywhere. they're not leaving. i'm saying to myself, man -- then the played my statement. and i said, carrier will never leave, but that was a euphemism. i was talking about all other companies from here on in because they made the decision a year and a half ago. but he believed that was -- i
could understand it. i actually said, didn't make it, when they played that, i did make it but didn't mean it quite that way. so now, because of him, whoever that guy was -- is he in the room by any chance? that's your son. stand up. you did a good job. you did a great job, right? that's fantastic. and i love your shirt. oh, wow. put it on, cameras. go ahead, put it on. your son is great, and he meant that, didn't he? really meant it. at first i said i wonder if he is being sarcastic, because this ship has sailed. then i said was -- it was 6:30 the evening and i said the first thing i'm going to do is go there and say, die call the head of carrier, who is a great guy, but i've always learned, i got a call the top. and i heard about greg hayes. a great executive.
unite technologies is one of the top 50 companies in the united states. and one of the continue companies anywhere in the world. they can make many other things other than air conditioners. so i called greg hayes. i heard of him but never have met him. and he picked up the phone, mr. president-elect, sir. it's wonderful to win. if i lost he return my call. if i lost and called me, i wouldn't have -- he wouldn't have called. he is nodding, you're right. but i called greg and i said it's really important. we have to do something. because you have a lot of people leaving. and you have to understand we can't allow this to happen anymore with our country. so many jobs are leaving, and going to other countries. not just mexico. many, many countries.
and china is making so much of our product we're closing up a lot of plants, and i wrote down some numbers that are incredible, but in the numbers of manufacturing jobs that are lot, especially in the rust belt, and the rust belt is so incredible, but we're losing companies as -- it's unbelievable. one after another. just one after another. so i said, greg, you got to help us out here. we got to do something. i said, because we just can't let it happen. anyway, he was incredible. and said i understand. and i said i wish i made this call a year and a half ago, would have been an easier call, because of your son, believe me. your son, whoever the hell your son is, these people owe him a lot. and i just went through -- he is out in the factory. thought they were all in this room. this room is not big enough. we just visited a thousand people in the factory that are going wild.
in the plant. but i will tell you that united technologies and carrier stepped it up, and now they are keeping -- actual he the number is over 1100 people, which is so great, so great. and i see the people. shook hands with a lot of the people. they're right behind us working. you're so -- your making so many air conditioners you didn't want to he them cam off for a half hour. a ruthless boss bus that's okay. says one thing to the carrier folks and the unites technologies folks. i said the good will that you have engendered by doing this, all over the world, frankly, but within our country, you watch how fast you're going to make it up because so many people are going to be buying carrier air conditioners. we have had such help here, bobby knight -- nobody in indiana heard of bobby knight.
how great is bobby knight. lou holtz. jean kady, such incredible support. but a friend called up and said, if you could get coach knight -- i said coach knight called me a year ago, a year before i decided to run. her said if you ever run, i'm supporting you. i said, thanks, coach. i don't know if lime doing it. he said it you could get coach knight. how good was bobby knight as far as indiana. 900 wins. two championships. right? two or three championships. olympic, gold medal. panam games and he was unbelievable he was going off over. the greatest guy. we okay. into an arena and we had 16,000 people inside, outside, we had i think 10,000 outside. it was -- i left and said how are we going to lose indiana
with this? and we didn't. we won big. want to thank those folks because they helped with indiana. and with a lot of other places. so, united technologies has stepped up and i have to say this. they did it in such a nice and such a professional way, and they're going to spend so much money on rennovating this plant, and said, greg, say that number. he said 16 million. the minimum number is 16. he said i'd rather say the lower number. i'd rather have him say the higher number. a difference in philosophy. both are okay but a difference in fill osi. they're going to pends a lot of money. said companies are not going to leave the united states anymore without consequences. not going to happen. not going to happen. tell you right now.
we're losing so much. so, one thing we're doing to keep them is we're going to be lowering our business tax from 35%, hopefully down to 15% which would take us from the highest taxed neighbors -- nation ins the world to one of the lower taxed. the other thing we're doing is regulations. the regulations are -- in fact if i asked greg you would probably say regulations might be worse for you than the high taxes, which is the biggest surprise of the whole political experience, i thought taxes would be number one and regulations would be up there. the great leaders of industry and the small business people, who are just being crushed, if they had their choice between lower taxes and a major massive cutting of regulations, they would take the regulations. i don't know how you feel about that, greg, but i just noticed -- i heard it -- since
about six years ago, 260 new federal regulations have passed. 53 of which affect this plant. 53 new regulations, massively expensive and probably none of them amount to anything in terms of safety or the things you would have regulations for. six of eight of the air conditioning companies right nowsch located in mexico. signature of eight. and 80% of the supply chain for mexico -- 80% -- is located in mexico. and we're not going to have it anymore, and we like mexico, it's wonderful. i was there three mock other with the president -- months ago with the president of mexico but we have to hear a fair shake. we have nafta, which is total and complete disaster.
it's a total and complete disaster. it's a one-lane highway into mexico. nothing coming our way. everything going theirs way. and i don't have to mex who signed it anymore. it's so nice. i don't have to mention who backed it anymore. right? we don't have to mention that anymore fortunately. but it's a one-way street. and it's going to be change owed. we have to bring our jobs back, and when they expand, one thing that made be so happy is when greg said that they have over10,000 jobs they're going to be producing in the near future and now looking to the united states instead of outside of the united states, where almost all of the jobs would have gone. so, one of the reasons i wanted to do this particular conference is it's so great so many people -- that big, big, beautiful plant behind us which will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. they're going to have a great
christmas. that's most important. but also i just want to let all of the other companies know that we're going to do great things for businesses nos. reason for them to leave anymore because your tacks will be at the -- taxes at the oloaned and the regulations will be gone and we need regulations for safety but most of the regulations are nonsense. a major industry, writing of regulations. and that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. not going to be taking people's hearts out. they're not going to be announcing, like they did at carrier, that they're closing up and moving to mexico. over 1100 jobs. by the way that number is going up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. so the 1100 is a minimum number. so, i just want to thank everybody, specifically the
people i met back stage. the spirit and love. people are all crying. and it's taken us a little while but think of this. i don't think we even announced we were running when this deal was originally announced. and in the end what happened is -- because that makes it much more difficult. it's hard to negotiate where the plant is built but greg said the plants is almost built. said, greg, i don't care. doesn't make any difference. don't worry about it. what are we going do with the plant? rent it, sell it, knock it down. don't care. but they're going to do fine with their plant. not with an american company but we'll figure that out. but where we're starting is from a much easier place. it's a hard a year and a half ago they make an announcement and all of that work is done, which is why i have such
respect -- always say business people heave flexibility. that's why they've done so well over the years, that's why it's a great company, because they have flexibility. but we're not going to need some much flexibility for other companies because we are going to have a situation where they're going to know, number one, we'll treat them well, and number two, there will be consequences, meaning there will be taxed very heavily at the border if they want to leave, make products in different countries. and then think they're going to sell that product over the border, which by the way will be a very strong border. very strong border. believe me. and i think companies -- we're going to build the wall. people say are you going to build the wall? trust me, wearing going to build the wall and we're going to have doors in the wall but they're coming through legally and come through on worker permits to
work the fields. a lot of people going to come through but done to a legal process. one thing that is not going to come through is drugs. the drugs are going to stop. the drugs are going to stop. so, i just want to thank all of the people at united technologies, most particularly you, because you are fantastic, greg. i want to thank -- i want you to tell me how much air conditions units you sold in the last six months from today because i think it's a number that will surprise you folks because of the tremendous good will you created. i want to thank all of the workers at this plant, all of the carrier workers, most importantly. [cheering] >> i want to thank my great, great vice president-elect. one of the really good
decisions -- i went to thank mike and we'll be doing this and if i have to tell you during speeches they says it's not presidential to call up massive leaders of business. it's very presidential and if it's not presidential, that's okay, because i actually like doing it. but we're going to have a lot of great people that can do it as well also i do it. but we're going to have a lot of phone calls made to companies when they say they're thinking about leaving the country, because their not a leaving this country. and the workers are going to keep their jobs and i they can leave from state to state and negotiate good deals with different states but leaving the country is going to be very, very difficult. so i want to thank everybody. we love you folks. i want to real thank the people of indiana. two massive victories and a very, very short period of time, and all of the workerrers have a great, great christmas and a
fantastic new year. thank you, everybody. thank you. thank you very much. >> that's a victory lap you're watching. the sound has disappeared from the earth bus president-elect taking a victory lap, meeting with the workers at the carrier plant, the vp, who is still he governor of indiana. this is president-elect trump's first appearance since elects day. carrier is a heating and air conditioning company, set to move 1400 jobs to a factory in mexico. executives made this announcement back in february. >> became clear that the best way to stay competitive and protect the business for long term, is to move production from our facility in indianapolis to monterrey, mexico. >> the gasps may have been helpful. yesterday carrier announced it
has reached a deal to keep a thousand of the jobs indy and the rest going to mexico. the taxpayers of indiana will give united technologies $7 million in tax breaks and in return carrier will invest $16 million. the legislators are questioning why mike pence during push for this earlier. the transition team says the trump commitment to cutting regulation happened seal the deal. the white house call the carure news welcoming but president-elect trump will need too pack his bags to keep if we president obama. >> he has to make 804 more announcements just like that to equal the standard of jobs in the manufacturing sector that
were created in this country under president obama's watch. >> john report,s is in cincinnati where the president-elect will kick off his so-called thank you tour, and states that helped him win the white house. >> reporter: there were a number of those in the industrial i -- midwest and if you ask why trump won in those states, donald trump said he was going to be tough on companies that planned to move from the united states, either to mexico or elsewhere overseas, offshore, and carrier decided it's going to keep about 1100 jobs in the city of indianapolis. a couple of reasons why it's doing that. first of all you mention ode tax breaks from the state of indiana. adding up to $7 million. some for education, and capital improvements and the other
performance based. carrier has to keep a certain number of employees. so it's incentive to keep people on the payroll. and this would be a net benefit to carrier. the furnace plant these going to be staying open there, even though a lot of otalk is about air conditioners. a couple other reason is why carrier is staying in indianapolis, not just the breaks from the state but the promise the playing field would be more competitive in the united states through lower corporate taxes. donald trump wants to get it down to 15% and get rid of regulations and a third part in this and that is that united technologies has a lot of federal contracts. didn't want to get on badground with the trump administers so that's why it's keeping the plants open. >> what's the latest on the cabinet search? anything new? >> a lot of palace incareering.
there were four finalists for secretary of state. maybe there never was four but maybe there's five. here's the latest. mitt romney in the running, along with rudy giuliani, bob corker and john bolton, former u.s. ambassador is in the running because he is meeting with donald trump tomorrow. some sources told me john bolton may be better suited for the departmentty secretary of state but bolton says there needs to be real reform at the state department. >> there are almost 70,000 employees of the state department worldwide so a pretty bureaucracy, and they're not there necessarily to follow what the president wants to do in foreign policy, that they're there to run foreign policy themselves. >> reporter: we also understand that as far as secretary of defense goes, the president-elect has all but settled on general james mad dog
madis. he needs a waiver from congress because he has not been retired from me military for seven years as required by statute, so donald trump wants to keep that solid. >> john roberts, thank you. let's bring in kimberly atkins, hi. >> hi, huh how doing. >> great, never seen anything liking this before. >> it's really extraordinary. this is clearly a victory for donald trump, that he was able to tout keeping a campaign promise before even taking the ocean of office. so, it's definitely something the team is proud of today. it's a good way t off this victory tour of sources. you talked about through the crucial rust belt states and other states that helped him win. >> you think the feel-good moments are useful? >> i think they are. a it's good way for him to -- there's been a lot of controversy surrounding the
election, his business dealings, conflicts of interest, donald trump likes being out in front of an audience. he is in his element and to have something like this, bit of news that is good news for these 11,000 workers, who were otherwise going to lose their jobs, it's a great way to kick it off and put him in his element to talk about the policies he wants to brings in. >> the matter of his intense -- business interest is important but it is because future administrations will come along, maybe ones with whom his voters are not so pleased, and there is a set of norms that has been in place that serve the nation and its people very well, and i wonder the degree to which he's going to have to be or need to be forthcoming about his businesses so that the people understand when he makes a decision, whether he is making it for then or for himself and
his family. >> that's important and questions he is going to have to answer. even if he says, i'm pulling myself out of all decisionmaking, and focusing on what is on my desk in oval office. he knows what the business interests of trump international are. he knows even if he never owned the company issue its always belonged to his kid is, that would still create a conflict of interest because we don't know if the actions he takes in the oval office that can have a dramatic impact on businesses. so these are things we has to be transparent about. its impossible to put imin a blind tryst but when he does -- blind trust but when he makes his next announcement what he goes to do, peel will be keeping a close eye on that. it's for the interests of the country to know that the commander-in-chief is unbiased. >> kimber whether i atkins from
the boston herald. thank you. >> good to see you. >> a first candidate-driven statewide recount in a presidential election in 16 years and it's underway right now in the state of wisconsin. the pre re president-elect, won the state by 22,000 votes. after dozens of polls predicted secretary clinton would win there she did not. donald trump won. campaign carl cameron with a live report on the recount, coming up on the fox news deck as we approach the bottom of the hour and the top of the news. ♪ get up to $2500 customer cash on select 2016 and 2017 models for these terms. see your lexus dealer.

the first statewide presidential election recount started in wisconsin today, with other recounts still possible in michigan and pennsylvania. election workers in wisconsin have to retally three million ballots in 12 days. the green party presidential candidate, jill stein, officially requested the recount last week, and then clinton campaign workers said they will send a lawyer to the table.
but wisconsin officials say they rejected dr. jill stein's request to recount every ballot by hand and that decision is up to the individual counties. donald trump narrowly beat hillary clinton in wisconsin by 22,000 votes less than one percentage vote but officials think it will have the same result. even if the president-elect loses the recount he would still lead clinton. he called the effort led by stein. i've our own kennedy asked her is it this how you want to be remembered. what ising this really about? >> reporter: well, a lot of people have suggested it's about jill stein putting money in the green party coffers and raising
the green party awareness, and it's also expensive and nobody expects it to changing in, including the stein campaign. the deadline is a week before the electoral college votes. stein says she is doing it to ensure the process is transplanter parents and also to rule out potential hacking for which there is no evidence. a recount in michigan is supposed to start tomorrow and she i suing for one in pennsylvania and could lose that suit. clinton team's joint to in their wards, assure a fair process for everybody. her lead in the popular vote is over 2.5 million votes. flipping wisconsin, michigan and pennsylvania would hand her an electoral conference win. >> she has received millions and that great pressure for her to
release donor list so the people would have a better idea who is behind this but she is refusing. >> reporter: she has to pay a part of the recount. if all three states would go forward and take place it would cost $9 million. stein has raised 7 million bus it nose going to -- contribute that to wisconsin or michigan. the democratic elected officials say almost that the margins may change but the results will stand up. >> president-elect set to arrived in cincinnati later it to. they're caking off the thank you tour, as analysts say trump is testing the loyalty of some of his supporters by distancing himself from some of his campaign promises. said we're going to build a wall but he is backtracking on
plans to -- a -- he is open to keeping parts of obama care and settling for a fence insaid of a wall, although today he said we're going to build a wall and now he says it's going to have multiple beautiful doors in its, you understand the reference. take him seriously but not literally. some say they don't expect to keep all his promises other, say he is glad to worked against him because the want stuff to get done in washington. these particulars have not seemed to mind from the very beginning. >> donald trump supporters have always been very loyal. one of the main reasons why share so loyal to him and why many of them votes for him is because he is not a politician. you would talk to during the campaign -- i covered his rallies and talked to supporters
and say we don't think he's going to do everything but is going to shake up the system double but his support has continued i now that he is president-elect and a number of people say you can't take him literally and he might do this but it's good and he'll get things done. i think broadly what we have seen from donald trump during the campaign and now is rhetoric. we have not seen actual policies implemented, and that to me is when he'll really be testing the loyalty of his supporters once he is in the white house and actually implementing policies. >> or attempting to because washington is a tough place for anybody and smart people thick he'll fine that out. that said so much has been said about messaging, and this sort of no drama obama white house where the high highs never came and the low lows never came. argument that he really never sort of felt the nation's pain. donald trump is one who is putting on a show and the show seems to be playing very well.
>> yeah. he is a -- always -- his rallies have always been a show. he gives the crowd what they want. very good at reading a crowd. and you have seen his events, a few movements ago in indiana, he talked about being back stage with people who thought they would lose their jobs and they were not and they were crying. so i think that one of the things that has been obvious throughout the campaign and is continuing as he is president-elect is that he really does try to connect with people and he is not afraid to bring in the drama, and it's a very different kind of approach than we saw from president obama for sure. >> there's going to be a time because if you surround yourself by all different voices to brick all different opinions, you're going to get two different ways of doing things and somebody is going to be disappointed and i think a lot of people who are observers of the process wonder,
what's it going to be like when he has to be in a position where somebody is going to win and somebody is going to lose and they're all his friends. >> i think that's one of the big questions heading into the -- once he takes office. what you saw with president obama was a number of people who voted different points or view -- voiced different opinions of view and not agreement with him on certain policies, when he made a decision, including his vice president, but a lot of that was -- it wasn't all playing out in this very dramatic fashion, and i think watching what has happened with trump transition, it raises the question whether that is going to be the case once he is in the white house beau a lot of things have played out very publicly and kind of dramatically, and it's not clear who is go to be the burn that donald trump listens to the most, at the end of the day, when he has to make
a decision, it's not clear exactly how he'll handle the dynamic of different points of view and where the folks will be as loyal as president obama's have been to him as far as not leaking to the public. >> seems clear he's going to be in the decider. carol lee, thank you. >> we're learning new details about president-elect trump's tax plan. it's different than we had heard during the -- it's more specific. i should say. we'll tell you how it could change how your money is managed, and how all of us give money to the government. more specifics. see what you think, next. i use what's already inside me to reach my goals. so i liked when my doctor told me i may reach my blood sugar and a1c goals by activating what's within me... with once-weekly trulicity.

will by offset with a significant reduction of deductions. so for the upper cass not a tax but but a simplification and will recovery the rate. >> reporter: but the top tax writer in the house, kevin brady, chairman of the house ways and means committee, echoed mnuchin's commentses this morning. >> the only way to lower rates for everybody is to eliminate the hundreds of special tax provisions for some, and so that's what we're proposing to you, significant tradeoffs to move for this. >> reporter: brady said republicans are waiting on more guidance from the trump team how to proceed on tax reform. the two sides are talking now. the tax outline mr. trump released in august when he was campaigning, suggested every taxpayer, including top earners, would get a lower tax bill. >> thank you very much. i appreciate it. a sheriff now says kidnappers chained a woman, covered heir
