Remember the Carter/Reagan transition?
That awful Democrat administration couldn’t get the job done. Then, at the transition, as if by magic, things fell into place.
Trump still hasn’t taken the oath, but several companies have recognized what’s coming: The U.S. is about to be an atmosphere where businesses can thrive.
FCA, the U.S. arm of automaker Fiat-Chrysler, announced on Sunday that it would invest a total $1 billion in plants in Michigan and Ohio, which will add 2000 new jobs in the United States.
The announcement, in what the company said was the second phase of a plan it first made public a year ago, came days after Ford Motor Company decided to scrap a plan to build a facility in Mexico, instead opting to invest in a plant in Michigan.
Ford’s CEO cited demand, rather than the policies of President-elect Donald Trump, who has vowed to impose a “border tax” on companies that send jobs abroad.
“Consistent and combined with previously announced investments, FCA US is further demonstrating its commitment to strengthening its U.S. manufacturing base, and aligning U.S. capacity to extend the Jeep product lineup,” FCA said.
This is a tangible upswing in the U.S. economy.
No more smoke and mirrors from statements like “jobs saved or created.”
Trump is bringing real jobs!
