WSJ editorial board comes out against Trump's Carrier deal

The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board, a reliable bastion of free-market conservatism, isn’t cheering the Carrier deal that Donald Trump is touting as his first major political victory since becoming president-elect.

In an editorial published Thursday evening, the Journal argued that Trump’s method to convince the manufacturer to keep some 1,000 jobs in Indiana instead of moving them to Mexico — what it described as an “arm-twisting” — in the long run will lead to a loss of jobs.
