Ford Focus Jobs Go To China

Somehow I think the Trump tariff will not be happening here just like his Carrier jobs and these Ford jobs.

Quote:
Ford Motor Co. is moving production of its Focus model to China after production at its Michigan plant ends in 2019.

The move, which Ford estimates will save it $500 million in production costs for the car, comes as the company has become a target of President Trump, who is pressuring manufacturers to keep jobs in the United States.

Ford initially planned to move production of the Focus to Mexico, but it is now scrapping that plan in favor of production in China, according to a report in Bloomberg.

Trump thanked Ford on Twitter for its decision to scrap the Mexican plant.

Trump visited this Boeing factory to celebrate jobs. It just announced layoffs

Quote:
Five months ago at a Boeing factory in South Carolina, President Trump proclaimed, “We are going to fight for every last American job.”
Guess there in no fight left in him, Comey & Mueller has sapped all energy out of our illustrious LIC.
