Trump fires government official accused of outsourcing jobs

President Trump won the presidency by promising to put America first – and he’s following through on that promise.

That includes punishing big corporations and their executives both private and public, when they outsource American jobs. Trump sent a major message to one of America’s biggest utility companies – the Tenessee Valley Authority – by firing TVA board Chairman James Thompson for just that reason. 

The Washington Examiner reports:

President Trump is removing two members from the board of the Tennessee Valley Authority, the largest U.S. public power company, amid criticism the company is outsourcing jobs.

“So, let this serve as a warning to any federally appointed board. If you betray American workers, then you will hear two simple words ‘you’re fired. You’re fired,’” Trump said.

And Trump isn’t done – this is just the opening shot:

“If the TVA does not move swiftly to reverse their decision to rehire their workers, then more board members will be removed,” Trump said. “We have the absolute right to remove board members.”

Trump also again slammed TVA CEO Jeff Lyash for being “ridiculously overpaid” with a salary of $8 million per year. He said any new CEO of the power company should be paid no more than $500,000 a year, “which is still a significant amount more than the president of the United States.”

He’s absolutely right. Too often, government officials get rich off of the backs of taxpayers while conspiring to hurt the American worker. It’s time to put a stop to it.

  1. And so he should fire them. Not only that but the 8 million is way too much and it is no wonder our utility bills are so high and they are outsourcing our jobs. Just think how many people could be paid with that money.

    1. ALL DEPARTMENT HEADS IN THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT RECEIVE MORE MONEY FOR THEIR PAY THAN THE AVERAGE WAGE EARNER>$60,000
      A YEAR WITH NO BENEFITS> THE HAVE TO PAY FOR THEIR OWN BENFITS>:

  2. 8 million just think how many Americans that are in. Need how many American children live on the streets in the woods ederly that can’t buy food is it pay lights or by food??? Sick My o. My giving JOBS TO OTHER COUNTRYS i live in dallas texas they wanted to build 2 briges the brought in people from ITLY .

  3. No one is worth that amount of money! Thank you President Trump for firing them. Keep up the great work you are doing for America!!!

    1. And thank God he has common sense!! I am so grateful for this President who has gone to bat for the military folks, unborn babies (who have no voice) and making our nation great economically once again, where others stated it could not be done and so much more….he hit a Grand Slam in my book and I think everyone who is a true Patriot should be cheering him on! TRUMP/PENCE 2020!!

  4. 8 Million Dollar Salary ….. for that Job, WTF is the matter with anyone allowing that!!!!!!
    I say fire “All” the crooked bastards …….ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GO TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. OPEN COMMENT TO ALL GROUPS SENDING so much mail and so many wanting $$$$$! Well guess what we Seniors on SS don’t have enough to live and give. I give when and if I can! Save the money on postage, print, time wasted putting it together! I have no idea about others BUT mine get shredded. Example I have rec’d 6 letters asking if I want my city to be a sanctuary city! MY RED PEN is wearing out! NO NO and HELL no! WE have 2 barrios within 5/6 miles from me. OUR mail gets stolen, pkgs stolen on porches, cars are broken into and any thing is stolen, windows broken, car covers disappear, any lawn furniture gone, and the best is watching your clothes go missing from apt. wash rooms. Can go on and on! POLICE? if its not worth at least 900.00 won’t come out. Even when pictures, cars license are shown! I know people are hurting, BUT just maybe you could think of others before you steal their things!

  6. It is past time CEOs need to be reminded of who appointed them and why. Americans are hurting especially those of us who worked the major part of our lives, paid taxes, raised children to be honest, respectful, work hard and smart, treat others as you would want to be treated. Too often people of today believe they should be rewarded for being charitable, are owed food, clothing, shelter while living off their parents. I am not saying to be uncharitable but use money you earned to help less fortunate and No One deserves an $800,000 salary.

  7. All utility companies need to be investigated for the outrageous prices they charge.
    They are out of control, and the price keeps going UP, and their greed really hurts the little people. If these greedy dogs would have to live on an average salary like the normal WORKING person then they might be able to see how hard it is to pay such high bills. But, they are blind to the little guy, nor do they care because greed is the name of their game.

  8. Im glad he fired them and more need to go to many people are without. Jobs and food. These managers don’t deserve that type of pay period yhats stealing from the taxpayers as far as im concerned.fire them all and start over

  9. One of the reasons your utility bill is so hight is that taxpayer money is subsidizing all those wind turbines and solar farms. Besides that those huge wind turbines have to be transported across the country to their destination and the trucks that haul them are so heavy that they are breaking up our roads and highways!!

  10. They need to cut all government employees salaries, get rid of their unions and you would be amazed how much we would save if no paid holidays were abused. Some work and get double or triple time. Just give them days off with no pay. The Congress leeches should be working free for good of the people. They steal enough to make coming in worth their while. Two terms an they should be gone.

  11. Good job Mr President! Salaries should be brought way down…so much money wasted. We appreciate all you’ve done!

  12. How did it happen? Who allowed him to receive such humongous amount? If there is bylaws that entitle him for that salary, who wrote the bylaws and considering that the entity is Federally funded who allowed it to happen? This case or incident poses a lot of question. Please investigate further. People demand transparency. The CEO is getting paid out of taxpayers money. Please justify why he deserve that kind of compensation. Thanks
