that is why we have congress and other measures to stop him.
Pick a Republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become president of the United States. This is a change for Republicans: the House and Senate doing the work with the president signing bills. His job is to be captain of the team, to sign the legislation that has already been prepared."

From a Bloomberg article.
"We had planned to move the Lincoln MKC out of Louisville Assembly Plant," probably to the Cuautitlan factory in Mexico, Christin Baker, a Ford spokeswoman, said in an e-mail."
Yeah, it was leaving around 2019.

Trump has tweeted...
"Just got a call from my friend Bill Ford, chairman of Ford, who advised me that he will be keeping the Lincn plant in Kentucky...no Mexico..."
Sounds great. He's working already not even in the office yet and he's already bringing back jobs.
He confirmed that by tweeting...
"I worked hard with Bill Ford to keep the plant in Kentucky. I owed it to the great people of Kentucky for their confidence in me."
But ut oh....
Turns out there never were plans to send Lincoln to Mexico.
Not at all.
He is lyng again. And self aggrandizing . Taking credit for something he didn't do.
Oh it's going to be a fun four years.
Ford builds the Lincoln MKC small SUV at its Louisville Assembly Plant in Kentucky alongside the Ford Escape SUV. Ford had never said it was considering shifting MKC production south of the border. But the company confirmed Friday that it had been “likely” to move the work to Mexico in 2019 when its current contract with the United Auto Workers union expires.

Anybody with a clue about economics knows trump is a disaster. Revanue cuts mixed with increased spending.
Threatening to cut green energy subsidies but leave the 43 billion in oil and gas subsidies.
Throw in steeper trade tariffs to increase cost for the consumers. Brilliant ideas.
Oh and then 2 out of the three major players being given power in cabinet positions have a history of racially charged remarks...
This should go well. Sounds like the swamp is being filled with trash.

“We had planned to move the Lincoln MKC out of Louisville Assembly Plant", a Ford spokeswoman, said in an e-mail
Which still leaves the Trump statement accurate under a broad interpretation. So, the OP is insignificant. If you are going to accuse someone of a lie you have to give benefit of doubt, which means generously interpreting statements. The saving of one production line could be stated as "saving the plant" in the same way you can save someone even if there were not going to actually die entirely. This is a waste of our time to even talk about. It wasn't a lie under common interpretations of the word "save".

Moving production of a line out of a plant does not make a plant close down and move.
The Kentucky plant was not going to close down. The plant will continue to make Ford Escapes, 91% of their production.
ETA Trump has no basic understanding of the American auto industry.
