This is a bunch of crap and exactly what Trump has been fighting. Ford told Trump that 700 jobs would be created in Flat Rock because Ford moved the Focus to Mexico from Wayne (MI) Assembly.

Now, Ford says they will move the 700 jobs to Mexico and bring in 150 jobs to Flat Rock.

I hope Ford burns at the stake (and at the border) for this bait and switch promise. Let them pay a 30% duty if they try bringing these vehicles to the USA.

Mr. President Trump, if you hear me, I'm crying 'foul play' to the promise Ford gave you right after the election. You visited Wayne Assembly and you know their employment deficit. - Dave

It can't be the weather, I can only conclude it must be the slave labor.

Notice, Ford isn't clamoring to bust down Canada's doors for this deal. Mexico doesn't have an Environmental Protection Agency. I doubt they have child labor laws.

We're talking about electric vehicles that use chemicals in their batteries. All I know is, my buddies in California go to Mexico when they need chrome plating done because it's cheap. They tell me the streets are running 'green' from these plating companies.

Of course, Ford will be there, and in China and anywhere else they get a good deal. Bottom line is, Ford is in business, not to make cars but to make as much money as they can.

Cool

Dave I agree with you. Too often, big business of which Ford is included speak with " forked " tongue. They are too busy striving for R.O.I Return On Investment
