INDIANAPOLIS -- Just a day after visiting Indianapolis, and announcing the details of his deal with Carrier that helped save over 700 jobs, President-elect Donald Trump is taking aim at Rexnord.
In a Tweet Friday evening, Trump condemned the company for their plan to move to Monterrey, Mexico that will cost nearly 350 employees their jobs.
Rexnord of Indiana is moving to Mexico and rather viciously firing all of its 300 workers. This is happening all over our country. No more!

Rexnord announced their plan to move its Indianapolis operations to Monterrey, Mexico in October. That decision was made final just last month.
One of Trump's campaign promises has been to stop companies from moving their operations out of the country. He's made it clear that he plans to implement higher taxes and other penalties for companies that follow through and leave the U.S.
