Here is what he said, they buried it at the end of your article.
Meanwhile Ford said in a statement to NPR, "Today, we confirmed with the President-elect that our small Lincoln utility vehicle made at the Louisville Assembly Plant will stay in Kentucky. We are encouraged that President-elect Trump and the new Congress will pursue policies that will improve U.S. competitiveness and make it possible to keep production of this vehicle here in the United States."
Ford builds the Ford Escape and MKC compact crossovers at the Louisville plant, which employs 4,700. In the automaker’s 2015 contract with the UAW, it agreed to phase out the MKC in Louisville by the end of the contract, which expires in September 2019. Ford said a year ago that was so it could build even more Escapes in Louisville and it did not expect any job losses.
Ford has stressed no American jobs will be lost by its moving production of small cars to Mexico. Since 2011, Ford has added nearly 28,000 jobs in the U.S. and invested $12 billion in U.S. plants, according to Ford’s statement Thursday.
“Ford continues to employ more American autoworkers and produce more American made vehicles than anyone,” the statement read.

Don't worry he's going to cut taxes to pay for it all. Lol. But our reduced tax obligation will free up cash to pay for those expensive imports so there's that.

Uh no the product was moving not the plant.
Also it doesn't say they aren't going to move into the factory they spent a fortune building in Mexico.

Why are you so concerned with trump? Dont worry about him so much and use your goto clinton defense mechanism and ask youself the same question when you were defending Hillary.
"Why Hasn't he been arrested?" Clearly he is clean as a whistle since he hasnt been arrested by the fbi and passes your defense litmus test.
I didnt care for trump but i do enjoy knowing that hillary and her supporters didnt get there way.
Atleast with trump there is a chance for .001% positive change unlike the 0% chance with hillary.
You guys are Sooooooo original.
Are we really going to have four years of trumpettes standing by every dumb thing he says?
How about when the cpi goes off the rails from his genius trade strategy?
How about the trillion deficit his tax cuts create annually?
Constitutional conservatives should be very concerned by what is coming out of the Trump camp.
