Trump hasn’t taken the oath of office yet and won’t for another 16 days, but he continues to win! Are you sick of it yet? I know I’m not!
Ford has announced that it will cancel its plans to invest in a $1.6 billion plant in Mexico and will instead invest $700 million into its plant in Michigan. This means jobs in Michigan, a state that has suffered mightily under the thumb of Democrats. Ford said they didn’t directly negotiate with Trump but it’s hard to deny the effect President -Elect Trump has already had on the economy.
Ford Motor, which had been bashed by Donald Trump for shipping jobs outside the U.S., announced Tuesday that it will cancel production of a $1.6 billion plant in Mexico, and will instead invest $700 million in Flat Rock, Michigan.
The U.S. auto giant said it will add 700 direct new jobs in Flat Rock to produce high-tech electrified and autonomous vehicles, plus the Ford Mustang and Lincoln Continental…..
Ford Chairman Bill Ford Jr. said he spoke with President-elect Trump on Tuesday morning to tell him of the decision to invest in the U.S. and cancel the Mexico plant, according to Reuters.
“We’re also encouraged by the pro-growth policies that President-elect Trump and the new Congress have indicated that they will pursue,” Ford President and CEO Mark Fields said in a statement.
If the past 2 months are any indication of how a Trump presidency will go, Trump is going to live up to his campaign promise of Americans are going to get tired of winning!
