He's letting the world know that he is on board with crony capitalism.

How might Trump have persuaded Carrier and/or Ford to retain jobs that, in your mind, would not result in crony capitalism?

The only thing that I would have done if I were Trump would be to fight for better policies in the U.S. (e.g. lower taxes, lower regulation, and a stable dollar).
