INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Donald Trump is taking on another Indiana manufacturer that has plans to let go of workers and move operations to Mexico.

Late Friday, Trump tweeted: “Rexnord of Indiana is moving to Mexico and rather viciously firing all of its 300 workers. This is happening all over our country. No more!”

Rexnord operates a bearings factory near the Carrier plant in Indianapolis, where Trump on Thursday touted a deal to save hundreds of jobs in exchange for about $7 million in state tax breaks and grants.

Trump told workers at the Carrier plant, “Companies are not going to leave the United States anymore without consequences.”

A telephone message seeking comment was left Saturday on Milwaukee-based Rexnord’s communications hotline.
