Ahhh Politics. With the presidential race in full swing, politics and fingering pointing are all the norm right now and no one can deny the face, or mouth shall I say, of this election to date is Donald Trump. Whether for or against, everyone has a pretty set opinion about the billionaire real estate mogul. Recently, Mr. Trump has made erroneous statements about how his stance on Mexico and his plan to tax outsourced vehicles is the reason Ford is keeping its production lines in the United States and out of Mexico.
As you can imagine, along came Ford’s CEO, Mark Fields, with the counter punches stating “the decision was made back in 2011 to bring production to Ohio and not Mexico for the simple reason we know what we’re doing in Ohio.” Fields also pointed out that by keeping production locally that Ford has “created more jobs, balanced budgets, and done workforce training.”
With a little over a year till the actual election, I think it’s safe to say that it is gunna be a long election race. Also, with Ford’s recent growth and surge in the stock market, there’s never been a better time to be a proud owner of a Ford!by
