An Indiana union leader who publicly criticized Donald Trump for mischaracterizing the Carrier jobs deal said he has received threats since the president-elect attacked him on Twitter.
Chuck Jones, president of United Steelworkers Local 1999, bashed Trump to national media outlets for saying his agreement with the United Technologies unit saved more jobs than it actually did. Trump announced last week that the agreement — which gives Carrier $7 million in financial incentives — would keep 1,100 jobs in Indiana rather than have them move to Mexico.
Jones said he was told the deal would only save about 800 jobs, 730 in production, at the Indianapolis plant, and hundreds of his members would lose their jobs. He told The Washington Post that Trump "lied his a-- off" about the number of positions the agreement preserved.
A Carrier spokeswoman previously confirmed to CNBC that 300 headquarters and engineering jobs in the state were never getting relocated and were included in the 1,100 position estimate.
Shortly after Jones criticized Trump on CNN on Wednesday night, Trump tweeted that the union leader has done a "terrible job" representing workers. The president-elect added that the jobs would have stayed in Indiana "if United Steelworkers 1999 was any good."
Jones told NBC News that abuse from Trump's supporters increased after the tweets.
"I'm getting threats and everything else from some of his supporters," the union boss said Wednesday night. "I'm getting them all day long — now they're kicked up a notch."
Jones added that he had not received death threats but said some of the people threatening him knew he had children.
