The Internet Loses It Over Ford's Announcement--One Big Difference Between Obama & Trump Keeps Coming Up
The news broke on Tuesday that the Ford Motor Company would not be relocating a plant to Mexico, and instead would be reinvesting big bucks in a U.S. plant.
Ford's CEO pointed directly at Trump and the GOP's pro-business policies as a reason for the decision.
As reported by Fox News:
CEO Mark Fields, speaking at an event at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant, said the policies that Trump “and the new Congress have indicated they will pursue” were vital to the company’s decision.
“We believe these tax and regulatory reforms are necessary to boost U.S. competitiveness,” Fields said.
The report lists Carrier, Sprint, and OneWeb as other companies that have made decisions to keep jobs in the U.S. under the future president.
Trump did what he's best at: Trumpeting the news.
The social media reaction was effusive with praise for Trump, and a comparison with Obama kept surfacing again and again in the top comments. One Facebook commenter wrote:
“This man literally has done more POSITIVE for this country before stepping foot in the office than Obama did in his eight years!”
Another chimed in with a point about no need for a “bailout”:
GM won't have bailout-Barry behind them this time. Congratulations to Ford and President Trump!!!
Then a commenter made a bold prediction:
That's what a Donald Trump's effect does. He has already made better deals since he got elected than Barack Obama has in 8 years.
Just wait till he is officially the president, y'all gonna lose your minds.
Wait, there's more:
Amazing the accomplishments being made so far—-and he is not even the President!!! Obama must be stewing in his final days and the liberal media trying to figure out how to spin this as a negative!
The commenters kept piling on:
Amazing....can't wait to see how much he gets done once he's in office. Pack your bags Obama. No one wants you around anymore
President Obama has suffered from stagnant economic growth during his eight years in office. Many economists agree his presidency has overseen the slowest recovery since the 1940s.
It will be hard for news media to spin this into a negative. As for Americans, most people will take more jobs in the United States, thank you very much.
