Man who had to train foreign replacement takes center stage at Trump event and rallies crowd

Pushing a strong point of his campaign — jobs — Donald Trump brought a man on stage Thursday at a New Hampshire rally who the presumptive GOP nominee said was forced to train people from Mexico to replace him on the job.

Speaking at the former Osram Sylvania plant, which announced in 2014 that it was closing it’s Manchester, New Hampshire location and outsourcing the jobs to Mexico and China, Trump introduced Mike, who he met when the man asked to take a photo with the candidate.

Mike said he worked at Osram Sylvania for 29 years until the plant shut down.

“I want to introduce though a man that’s worked here for many years, Mike,” Trump told the crowd. “And Mike actually had the distinct lack of honor of training people from Mexico to take his job.”

Mike spoke in support of Trump and said “it’s heartbreaking to see the jobs go to Mexico and outside the country.”
