Considering he wants to abolish all forms of taxation, I'm not sure how it would have been paid for though...
The problem with Trump’s claim is that the Ford plant wasn’t going to leave. Ford was shifting production from Michigan to Mexico to make room for the Michigan plant to make two new products. The plant was always staying. No jobs were going to be lost.
Reuters quoted CEO Mark Fields as saying, “We’re going forward with our plan to move production of the Ford Focus to Mexico, and importantly that’s to make room for two very important products we’ll be putting back into Michigan plants. There will be no job impact whatsoever with this move.”
Fortune reported that the Kentucky plant, like the Michigan plant, wasn’t going anywhere, ““We already have the plants and investment in other parts of the world. It frees us up to make further investments in the U.S.,” Fields said, pointing to the money invested to launch a new SuperDuty pickup at a plant in Kentucky.”
The John Birch Society nearly changed the face of America during the 1964 Republican presidential race with their abominable brand of anti-semantic, racist, sexist and anti-government rage. Over a half a century later, the Birchers are back and stronger than ever thanks to the efforts of the Koch Brothers, the Tea Party, the rise of Alt-Right and of course, the shocking nomination of Donald Trump as the Republican candidate for President.
It comes from a very different view of what government is—and what government should or could be. The John Birch Society came from the principle that the federal government is essentially evil. That’s extremely difficult for liberals to grasp. But it was exactly where they were coming from. They believe the government is essentially evil and should either be privatized or completely done away with.
He funded the John Birch Society's promotional campaigns, bought advertising in its magazine, and supported its distribution of right-wing radio shows.

Yep. And now America is about to bear the brunt of this "gathering storm". I know you clearly see this cult of Trump for what it is.
Jones’s guest on his show the morning of the shooting had been, as chance would have it, Donald Trump. Jones had praised Trump, claiming that ninety per cent of his listeners were Trump supporters, and Trump had returned the favor, saying, “Your reputation is amazing. I will not let you down.”
In a Youtube video titled “Donald Trump thanks InfoWars for the win,” Jones relayed a message to his loyal, alt-right viewers.
“Donald Trump again wanted me to thank all of you, just as he has done on the broadcast when he joined us, but again today, we just talked to him, took time out talking to world leaders,” Jones began his rant. “He’s not calling other media. He’s not meeting with other media. He’s not talking to the media. He wanted to directly talk to you and thank you.”
"His followers don’t fact-check anything — they’ll post everything, believe anything," Horner said. Referring to then-Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, Horner said, "His campaign manager posted my story about a protester getting paid $3,500 as fact. Like, I made that up. I posted a fake ad on Craigslist."
Asked by the Post’s Caitlin Dewey why he posted the fake story, Horner responded, "Just ’cause his supporters were under the belief that people were getting paid to protest at their rallies, and that’s just insane. I’ve gone to Trump protests — trust me, no one needs to get paid to protest Trump. I just wanted to make fun of that insane belief, but it took off. They actually believed it."

As it is turning out, once it is seen that the Emperor has no clothes, it appears that Trump himself does not have that "natural independent streak" that you have. He wants, he needs, to appear beyond other's control, because he himself is vulnerable to other's control.

He is not just talking points. He gets things done. He singlehandedly beat the GOP field. He then beat the DNC and they spent 2 billion dollars to stop him...that we know off. He beat the largest political crime I mean family there is right now. All of them.
