It's a clean energy company that worked with our foundation to retrofit the Empire State Building, we cut the electric us in that old building by 40%, created 275 full-time jobs for two and a half years doing it. But, Johnson Controls is an auto-supply company, they come to Congress and they 'please bail out the auto industry.' And Congress helped them, and they should have. Detroit just had its best month ever and whoa to us if we had lost the manufacturing of automobiles and light trucks in America. But then, as soon as they got well, they got under the influence of these activist shareholders who made them pretend to sell themselves to a company in Northern Ireland where they could pay a third of the taxes. I think if we help somebody, and they bolt on us, they should pay an exit fee." (Bill Clinton, Remarks At A 'Get Out The Vote' Event, Greenville, NC, 3/14/16)
