As President Donald Trump listed the accomplishments of his trip to Asia, one example remains a mystery. “Vietnam is ordering at least $12 billion worth of Boeings,” he said. But there is no evidence of that.
A Mitt Romney ad running in South Carolina distorts the truth by claiming that the National Labor Relations Board told Boeing Corp., “You can’t build a factory in South Carolina because South Carolina is a right-to-work state.” That misstates the facts. The NLRB’s acting general counsel actually dropped the case. And South Carolina’s right-to-work law wasn’t the focus of the now-dismissed complaint. The acting general counsel had claimed Boeing was punishing workers in another state for union activity.
