Trump is in Indiana this afternoon to celebrate the decision by Carrier air conditioning company, owned by United Technologies, who has agreed to keep 1,100 jobs in Indiana that had been planned to be moved to Mexico, a plant closing announcing last February. It has been announced that Trump will then be traveling to an event this evening in Ohio. 

President-elect Trump continues to meet daily with a number of individuals about possible Cabinet and administration positions.  Kingston, who was Congressman for the GA-1 district for 22 years, is not a lobbyist, living in Washington, DC.
