Ford shifting all U.S. small-car production to Mexico
“Now, the cars are made in Mexico and you can’t drink the water in Flint” – Donald J. Trump
When Donald Trump started his campaign back in June of 2015, he warned of the coming rush to Mexico by many of America’s top manufacturers like Carrier and others. The liberal main stream media immediately branded this as “fear mongering”. So it is with noted irony that we bring you today’s story of automaker Ford’s decision, announced yesterday, to move all small-car production to Mexico.
Ford plans to eventually shift all North American small-car production from the U.S. to Mexico, CEO Mark Fields told investors Tuesday, even though the company’s production investments in Mexico have become a lightning rod for controversy in the presidential election.
Donald Trump Attacks Ford Decision To Move To Mexico:
“Over the next two to three years, we will have migrated all of our small-car production to Mexico and out of the United States,” Fields said at a daylong investor conference in Dearborn.
The news sparked a fresh round of criticism of Ford from Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump, who was campaigning in Flint on Wednesday.
“We shouldn’t allow it to happen. They’ll make their cars, they’ll employ thousands of people, not from this country, and they’ll sell their car across the border,” Trump said during his visit. “When we send our jobs out of Michigan, we’re also sending our tax base.”
