Trump Lies About Saving Sprint Jobs
More from the egomaniacal Demagogue-elect. He's trying to take credit for keeping 5,000 Sprint jobs in America, even though the decision by Sprint to keep those jobs in the US was made long before Trump became Pussy-grabber-Elect:
"First of all, Sprint announced these jobs back in April. Here's the Kansas City Star: 'Sprint Corp. is launching a nationwide service to hand-deliver new phones to customers in their homes. The Direct 2 You service, which first rolled out in a Kansas City pilot, will lead to the hiring of about 5,000 mostly full-time employees as it spreads nationwide.'
"Second, the Japanese owner of Sprint, Softbank, announced in October that it was creating a huge tech investment fund.
Third, in December, Softbank's CEO announced the fund again after a meeting with Trump, and said that one part of the whole package was the creation of 50,000 new jobs.
Today, Sprint reluctantly conceded that its 5,000 jobs were part of the previously announced 50,000 jobs.
And finally, these jobs were announced yet again today. That makes four times these jobs have been announced. Donald Trump was responsible for none of them." -- Charlene Chambers
