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

Andrea Bocelli reportedly will not perform at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony after fans threatened to boycott his concerts. And came under some very intense pressure on social media over his potential performance.
Bocelli said “he was ‘getting too much heat’ and threats to have his concerts boycotted, and so he said no.

This is how these LIBERAL Street Thugs operate, if they cant get their way, the not only Protest! But they Boycott and Threaten!

I guess that’s the NEW American way! And they Dare to call the Republicans NAZI'S?

Truth makes little difference to Trump supporters. If he says it, they believe it.

Sal, boycotting is a very effective, legal way of putting pressure on people to change their minds and ways. The religious right does it all the time -- for example, they urded people to boycott Target stores because Target respects transgender people. You don't like it when liberals employ it? Awwwww.

And Sal, old boy, the American Nazis, White Supremacists, and KKK didn't celebrate and hold victory rallies yelling "Heil Obama!" when Mr. Obama won. Those are Trump's supporters. They've been emboldened by Trump's bigotry. He owns all that. How proud you and your fellow conservatives must be.

urged, not "urded."

I've read there is trouble at the Deplora-ball organizing team. Some want to let the Nazi flag fly, flashing Seig Heils where they may. Others are urging caution only to be eaten by the ravening mob for not being Alt-white enough.

Nazis in DC. Open. Russians in the White House. Again open, no hiding. All my relatives who died defending the country against both are not resting easy.

To be fair as a citizen a person is entitled to their own thoughts about fellow citizens. It is when the Animal Farm pigs try to make into law their ideal 'All animals are created equal but some are more equal than others' - well, then we are going to have a different discussion. That pig thinking has no place in the USA.

My best to all here at PE. May your New Year be better than the last.

Shaw, sure you didn't mean turded instread of urded?

Connie from Denver,

The irony is stunning. The same Goopers who relentlessly labeled Mr. Obama a Communist (calling his mother and grandparents that) now excuse the P-grabber-elect's praising the ex-head of the Communist KGB and insulting America's president! BTW, I wonder if the Goopers are aware of the fact that the future FLOTUS, Melania Trump, father is a Communist. Imagine if Michelle Obama's father were a member of the Communist Party. The Goopers spent the last 8 years howling over a lie that Mr. Obama is a Communist, but they're quiet about Trump's father-in-law being a Communist.

Not a peep out of them while Trump chooses a Commie over the American president and they have nothing to say about Melania's Communist father.

They are deplorable hypocrites.

Thank you for your kind wishes for the new year. 2015 and 2016 were horrible years for our family.

Jerry, maybe "turded" would have been a better choice.
