Donald Trump has just blown a giant hole of hypocrisy in his own favorite stump speech. Not only is he an outsourcer himself, he’s also profiting off companies he trashes for doing it—notably Carrier and Oreo. Trump has proven once again that he’s guided entirely by his own interests, not the needs of working people. Investments in the parent companies for Carrier and Oreo are among the many findings by American Bridge in Donald Trump’s financial disclosure report. For 2015, Trump reported between $5,001 and $15,000 in interest from Mondelēz International, the parent company of Oreo. He also reported between $2,500 and $5,000 in interest from United Technologies, which owns Carrier.
Once again, working people would do well to read the fine print and check the details when it comes to Donald Trump and his campaign claims.
American Bridge released a video addressing Trump's hypocrisy:
