Pence says Trump will intervene to stop outsourcing 'on a day-by-day basis'

Once in office, President-elect Donald Trump will decide whether to interfere with companies considering outsourcing 'on a day-by-day basis," Vice President-elect Mike Pence said Sunday. "He is going to put on the table all the tools that are going to take away the advantages of companies that for far too long have been pulling up stakes, leaving American workers behind," Pence explained while speaking with ABC News. "We're going to create trade policies that take away the advantages that these multinational corporations have had in moving jobs overseas now for decades."

Trump himself sent out a series of tweets on the issue Sunday morning, promising a 35 percent tax to discourage would-be outsourcers. "Please be forewarned prior to making a very expensive mistake!" Trump concluded. "THE UNITED STATES IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS" — you know, like the Hotel California.
