President Donald Trump provided NBC News a little real-time supplementary reporting Sunday, free of charge.

NBC Nightly News featured the industrial supplier company Rexnord on its Sunday broadcast — the company is in the process of closing an Indianapolis bearings plant and moving operations to Mexico.

Shortly thereafter, the president took to Twitter to offer his insight.

“Rexnord of Indiana made a deal during the Obama Administration to move to Mexico. Fired their employees,” he tweeted Sunday night.

It seems jobs were very much on the president’s mind Sunday, as he retweeted earlier in the day a post that mentioned jobs going overseas.

This makes the second time Trump has singled out Rexnord, having tweeted about the company “viciously firing all of its 300 workers” in December, concluding with a resounding: “No more!”

The tweet came just days after Trump celebrated a deal to keep Carrier from moving jobs from Indianapolis to Mexico.

Ironically, just as Trump appeared to be watching NBC News, so too was the network watching him, with NBC senior news editor Bradd Jaffy tweeting:
