Update: Hey, it turns out that the Carrier plant in Indianapolis, where Trump said he had saved almost 1000 jobs from moving to Mexico, has made a new decision. They have now decided that they are going to move 632 jobs to Mexico:

Despite assurances from President Donald Trump during his campaign that he would prevent the air-conditioner maker Carrier from moving jobs to Mexico, the company will lay off hundreds of workers at its Indianapolis, Indiana, plant by 22 December 2017.

The company informed state officials in a 19 May 2017 letter that it would terminate 632 positions over the course of the year. According to the letter, 338 employees would be let go in July, another four on 1 October 2017 and the last 290 workers would be laid off on 22 December 2017.​

I feel bad for the employees.

But releasing 4 on October 1 seems a bit random.
