Why Corporations Are Helping Donald Trump Lie About Jobs – The New York Times

In an usually sharp statement, the New York Times editorial board took on corporate executives for allowing President-Elect Donald Trump to take credit for creating or saving jobs when either they were not created or saved or he had nothing to do with creating or saving them.

[C]ompanies like Sprint seem perfectly happy to go along with this fiction because they know they can profit handsomely by cozying up to Mr. Trump.

The Times notes that these executives all have matters before the federal government that they hope to be resolved favorably, at least favorably for their own interests if not the interests of investors, employees, customers, or the community.
