Ford Moving ALL Small Car Manufacturing to Mexico

by Right Wing Fighter

From Breitbart.com:

Ford Motors has now announced it intends to move all its small car manufacturing lines out of Detroit and the U.S. and into its Mexico-based plants.

[…]

[Ford CEO] Fields added that Ford is investing an additional $4.5 billion to develop electric vehicles by 2020, most of which will be spent in its Mexico facilities. The company also said all emerging small car models will be made south of the border.

[…]

In February, Ford Motor Company announced it was set to double production capacity at a previously built Mexico factory, instead of enlarging U.S. factories.

This is why Donald Trump is so popular. It’s why he won the nomination. And it’s also why he’ll probably win the election.

Our country is getting completely ripped off by companies that are supposedly American, but that haven’t the least shred of patriotism.

It’s why we need economic nationalism now, before all our industries go to other countries.

In another story from Breitbart.com:

The CEO of Ford Motor Company dodged CNN’s Poppy Harlow‘s question to him about whether Donald J. Trump was right when he said Ford will fire all of its employees in the United States and move all the jobs to Mexico.

“You know, Poppy, it is really unfortunate when politics get in the way and the facts are: Ford’s investment in the U.S. and commitment to American jobs has never been stronger,” said Mark Fields, who took over the Dearborn, Michigan-based automaker in July 2014.

“So, Mr. Trump is wrong, correct?” Harlow asked.

“That is correct,” he said. The jobs going to Mexico are new jobs and the American workers now building the Focus will be tasked with other production lines.

“Facts are stubborn things sometimes,” he said. “We are going to continue to lay them out in a season of a lot of political activity.”

What a pack of lies.

Ford’s ‘commitment to American jobs’ is nil, if it’s moving all of its small car production to Mexico. Sending new jobs to Mexico, instead of creating them in the U.S., shows that Ford hasn’t the least commitment to American jobs. Ford is committed to one thing: money.

Ford is maintaining some production in America, where in some ways it’s cheaper than sending it to Mexico. But they’ll continue to grow their facilities in Mexico until they can offload all of their manufacturing there.

And finally, what a sanctimonious little punk Fields is. For him to get up there and lecture about ‘facts,’ when they are nothing but lies, is aggravating.

I’m not a fan of Thomas Jefferson. But I certainly agree with this quote from him:

Merchants have no country. The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains.[1]
