Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)’s town hall on MSNBC brought together workers from the Carrier plant that President Donald Trump said he would save from outsourcing. Less than a year later, Carrier announced it was shipping jobs to Mexico and laid off the people Trump made promises to.
“I feel duped,” said Renee, who voted for Trump. “I don’t have a lot of faith in political candidates much anymore. They make promises and they make them and break them.”
Her former colleague Susan agreed.
“I feel like I have been betrayed, let down,” she said. “I thought Trump was going to really secure American jobs and that’s just not what’s happening out there at all. The jobs that were saved in the Indy plant were never going to leave to begin with.”
“So you feel like it was a con?” asked moderator and MSNBC host Chris Hayes.
“Oh, absolutely,” Susan replied.
Hayes noted that the so-called “deal” Trump made was nothing but “smoke and mirrors.”
Warren outlined her solution as being part of the green revolution. With green jobs to retrofit buildings and prepare for the coming crisis, jobs could be created.

‘Witness intimidation in real time’: Schiff and Yovanovitch respond to Trump moments after he launches Twitter attacks
Former Ukraine ambassador Marie Yovanovitch was asked to react to President Donald Trump's online attacks as she testified before the impeachment inquiry.
Daniel Goldman, the counsel for House Democrats, had been asking the ousted ambassador about the president's threats and smear campaign against her, and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) paused the testimony to read aloud the tweets Trump had sent out just minutes earlier.
....They call it “serving at the pleasure of the President.” The U.S. now has a very strong and powerful foreign policy, much different than proceeding administrations. It is called, quite simply, America First! With all of that, however, I have done FAR more for Ukraine than O.
‘Shame on her!’ Conservatives howl in rage after Marie Yovanovitch invokes diplomats killed at Benghazi
Former Ukraine ambassador Marie Yovanovitch invoked the names of diplomats killed during a raid at Benghazi -- and online conservatives were furious.
The former ambassador testified in the second public hearing of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, and she invoked the memory of her slain colleagues to describe the sacrifices made by officials in the State Department.
"We honor these individuals," Yovanovitch testified. "They represent each one of you here and every American. These courageous individuals were attacked because they symbolized America. What you need to know, what Americans need to know, is that while thankfully most of us answer the call to duty in far less dramatic ways, every foreign service officer runs the same risks, and very often so do our families."
Trump’s White House quickly caught in another lie after releasing second Ukraine call memo
This Friday, the White House released a transcript of President Trump's first phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
According to the readout of the call that was given to reporters back in April, the White House claimed that among other things, Trump "expressed his commitment" to "root out corruption" in the country.
But upon the release of the rough transcript this Friday, various reporters noted that there is no mention of rooting out corruption as the White House claimed back in April.
