Can it be that “The Donald” is already affecting American policy, without even yet being the Republican nominee?
It sure looks that way, or perhaps it’s just coincidence. However more likely than not, Trump’s constant bashing of Ford moving to Mexico, has apparently been making ripples both within the news media and perhaps among the voting public.
In that there’s something about shinning the light of publicity that has perhaps made those Ford executives a bit uncomfortable, you know like being exposed and naked.
Whatever it is, it seems that a switch has been suddenly turned on and thanks to perhaps “The Donald’s” constant public drumming, the issue of American companies bailing out of the U.S. seems to have caused some long needed reflection on what is happening to America’s industries.
“Astoundingly” Ford’s announcement of outsourcing jobs to Mexico has caused the auto manufacture to suddenly reverse itself and bring the $2,000,000,000 plant back to the United States.
Moreover by moving its facility, originally slated for Mexico, back to the United States, where it will employ 1,000 factory workers in struggling Youngstown, Ohio.
Trump recently said that if he’s elected he would take steps to make it more expensive for manufacturers to shift work to Mexico and then export the items back to the United States.
“How does that help us?” Trump said about the Ford investment in Mexico while campaigning in Michigan this week. “Mexico is becoming the new China.”
Do you think Ford got Trump’s message and is back tracking or is this just a convenient coincidence?
