Contrary to both the Herald and the Courier - shame on them both - Ford never planned to move those jobs to Mexico, and even if it had, nothing said or done by the Orange Menace would have influenced the decision either way.
The talking yam is a psychopathic narcissist and pathological liar, and I'm betting Ford execs know it.
How long before the media stop pretending otherwise?
It's a simple translation: If the talking yam accuses someone of something, he's projecting and confessing. If he claims something for himself, he's lying.President-elect Donald Trump tweeted a false claim Thursday night about saving a Kentucky Ford plant from moving to Mexico. By the next day, a handful of reputable news agencies had blasted out credulous headlines that bolstered that falsehood.“Just got a call from my friend Bill Ford, Chairman of Ford, who advised me that he will be keeping the Lincoln plant in Kentucky - no Mexico,” Trump tweeted. “I worked hard with Bill Ford to keep the Lincoln plant in Kentucky. I owed it to the great State of Kentucky for their confidence in me!”
Not so: Ford Motor Company operates two plants in the state, neither of which had planned on moving to Mexico. On Thursday night, Ford announced that one of its plants in the Bluegrass State, the Louisville Assembly Plant, would continue manufacturing the Lincoln MKC, the production of which they had previously considered moving to Mexico.
Even if production of that one model had moved to Mexico, the Louisville plant would not have lost any jobs, according to a statement from the company last November. Employees at the Louisville plant would have simply shifted to producing more Ford Escapes.
