United Steelworkers Local 1999 president Chuck Jones says that during the union's last meeting three months ago with the company, Carrier representatives indicated they planned to proceed with the move to Mexico between mid-2017 and early 2019.

It is the third video posted to Mr Trump's transition YouTube channel as he goes about the business of convincing a divided nation that he can govern for the whole country.

The President-elect is apparently looking to fix his relationship with all Americans, including the ones who didn't vote for him.

"It's my prayer, that on this Thanksgiving, we begin to heal our divisions and move forward as one country, strengthened by a shared objective and very, very common resolve", he said.

US President-elect Donald Trump said, "It is my prayer, that on this Thanksgiving, we begin to heal our divisions and move forward as one country", in a Thanksgiving message delivered via social media.

During the presidential campaign he often cited Carrier's decision last February to relocate some 1,400 jobs to its plant in Mexico as an example of jobs leaving the country - and how he as president would slap a tax on any units manufactured in Mexico and sold in the U.S.

"Will know soon!" he said Thursday on Twitter. Carrier will pay Mexican workers a base wage of $3 per hour, or $23 less than the highest-paid workers in Indianapolis.

It's Thanksgiving Day - the unofficial transition point between Halloween into Christmas, from fall into winter - and after a contentious election season, a welcome time for Americans to take a breather and gorge on turkey, stuffing, and pie.
