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.

Spot on. Good to see these CEO’s have to put up or shut up

Most CEO’s in America are overpaid and here is the problem. We have a Co-Op in our county and if this is the way it is run everywhere it is a rip off. The CEO is awarded big bucks while the board is paid big bucks for doing nothing. These people scratch each others back and the workers are screwed. This is a good step by Trump but the problems with Private companies is Trump has no input. It should not happen where tax payers are paying the wages.

President Trump is exactly spot on. Glad he made the move. Supposedly the CEO of First Energy makes around 8.4 million a year to run a power company. TVA is our tax money so glad someone has oversight… Outsourcing has to be stopped dead. President Trump needs to instruct US Customs to stop everything made in China at the US border and send it back from where it came.

TVA CEO Jeff Lyash. You are being paid a ridiculously high wage. No one should be receiving any amount close to that. No one. I’m very glad that my equity money is not invested in any of your companies.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS WORKING IN THE BACKROOM, HE’S NOT SITTING IDLE LIKE WE ALL THOUGHT. HIS PRIORITIES ARE STILL NOT 100%. HE SHOULD BY NOW HAVE AT LEAST JAILED THE OBAMAS’/THE HILLARYS/THE BIDENS/THE PELOSIS’/THE WATERS’/THE FEINSTEINS/OMAR/TLAIB/CORTEZ. AND MANY MORE TO COME, BUT THESE ARE THE WORST OF THE WORST.

AND….BY NOW HE SHOULD HAVE ALSO ABOLISHED ALL OF THE “ILLEGAL” SANCTUARY CITIES, THAT HE’S LET THRIVE ON OUR DIME, HE SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST DEFUNDED THEM LONG AGO, WHY DO WE STILL HAVE ANCHOR BABIES/DODD-FRANK BILL, AND PLEADING THE 5TH/LOBBYISTS?

HE DOES NEED TO GET HIS PRIORITIES STRAIGHTENED OUT. AND ACT ON THEM, ALL THESE ISSUES HAVE BEEN GOING ON FOR WAY TOO LONG. AND HE’S NOT EVEN TRIED TO FIGHT THE DEMS, AND BRING ACCOUNTABILITY BACK TO THE CONGRESS.

Excuse me, BUT President Trump is doing wonders all around him! If he didn’t have so much opposition from the do nothing demorats, that are being called out for a coup/corruption, the liberal courts hindering his every move, I’m sure things would have gone a lot faster! I have faith the good Lord will hear our plea and save America from the tyranny going on.

Chill out! You have no clue what going on in DC! There are laws that keep him from going after these corruption people! Since Obama is not in Washington or on the Congress seat. Not even president. Trump has two good men doing lot of INVESTIGATE. Obama will end up in prison. Or in front of a firing squad! He has done more damage and got away with lot of corruption. Nobody can become a billionaire in eight years without stealing from Taxpayers.

It should be like the old days, when politicians worked for $30,000 a year, and got no pension at the end of their tenure.
The amount of money they make, the longer they are in positions of power, the more greedier and corrupt they get. On the other hand some of them when they come into office are already corrupt and greedy. i.e. Pelosi.

Fire Pelosi? No way! She is a good reminder of how stupid the deomcrats are for letting a drunken air head run their party. As for trump? HE IS OUR GREAT WHITE HOPE! HE GETS THINGS DONE! Iwonder where we would be had the dems worked with him over the last 4 years instead of hindering and opposing his every move. I will never (and I have) ever vote for another democrat…EVER!

The $250,000.00 the President get paid every quarter President Trump puts back into the country he only keeps $1.00. So our President is volunteering his time to be President. The same is for Ivanka and Jared. And I know I will get comments back that Ivanka and Jared have other jobs and making other money. Those jobs were made available as self employed before they started to work in the government. Plus President Trump gave all his authority over his empire to both his sons. They are running the company now.
