WATCH: Judge Jeanine Likens Trump to Reagan Over Carrier Deal


On her Saturday Fox News show, Judge Jeanine Pirro offered high praise for Donald Trump and his Carrier deal, comparing him to Ronald Reagan while offering a paean to the president-elect for stepping in to saving 1,000 jobs in Indiana.

Pirro said Trump’s deal to save the jobs was similar to Reagan’s deal to free the hostages in Iran before his inauguration in 1981, when the hapless President Jimmy Carter had let them rot in Iranian captivity for more than a year.

“Amazing. A president who actually fulfills a promise before he even moves into the Oval Office,” Pirro said. “Remind you of another great leader? Ronald Reagan and those 52 American hostages held in Iran for 444 days that Jimmy Carter couldn’t get released for the life of himself before he left the White House?”

She then pointed to a similarly ineffectual attitude by President Obama regarding the Carrier situation.

“Curious that in June, when President Obama was asked by a member of the very steel workers union employed by Carrier if anything could be done to stem the tide of jobs leaving the United States, referencing that candidate Trump says he can do it.  Mr. Hope-and-Change himself answers: Not a chance.

“Pontificating to this steelworker that American workers need to learn better skills to adapt to new technology like clean energy. By the way, it was Obama’s Department of Energy that sold us Solyndra, that clean energy company destined for failure that lost a half a billion taxpayer dollars. Sure, learn that technology and you’d be out of a job there for good.”

She also pointed out that Obama had offered all kinds of incentives for illegal immigrants without giving incentives to keep jobs in America.

“We do all kinds of generous things for illegals (and) refugees — We educate them, medicate them, house them, give them food stamps, we even give them Obamacare, although the president said it wouldn’t cover them … Where’s our incentive?” Pirro said

“You’re watching in real-time a president-elect who is not all talk, a leader who is going to show us real hope and change… You’re watching another Ronald Reagan,” she added.

High praise. We’ll see if Trump can live up to it, but it’s certainly a good start.
