Before Donald Trump was elected, every liberal mainstream pundit said that he would be ineffective at brokering deals with manufacturers to bring jobs back to the US.
So far, he’s brought hundreds of jobs back though the deal with the air conditioning company Carrier, and now, one of the world’s biggest auto manufacturers, Ford, has announced that it has cancelled its plan to build a plant in Mexico, in favor of one in Michigan that will create energy efficient electric and autonomous vehicles for the new generation, as well as hybrid versions of the Mustang and F-150.
Not only that, it will create over 700 jobs in job-strapped Michigan, just when they’re needed most.
