A war of words has erupted between President-elect Donald Trump and Chuck Jones, president of United Steelworkers 1999.

It began when Jones, who leads the local union branch representing workers at Carrier Corporation's factory in Indianapolis, accused Trump of lying about the number of jobs he'd saved at Carrier. Trump responded through two tweets. Now Jones says he's getting threats from Trump supporters.

NPR's Domenico Montanaro (@DomenicoNPR) joins Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson to discuss the latest developments in presidential politics.

This segment aired on December 8, 2016.
