Picked this one up on Fox.

This one is slated for 2020, creating 2,500 blue collar jobs in Michigan by a one billion dollar revamping of a plant.

They also announced a 1,000 bonus for 60,000 employees.

So complain about Trump's language and tweets all you want. THIS is what we want and are getting!

well, they obviously know that trump will be re-elected in 2020 because they aren`t gambling 1 billion dollars+ on the chance that a democrat might be elected in 2020.

We gave up on worrying about how a President acts when we accepted Bill Clinton’s sexual misconduct during his tenure as POTUS. Results and putting America first are the standard for success now. This is great news for a state that needs these high quality jobs.

It was a Fox report on Facebook. Went to Fox and they linked to CNN. (I'll take good news from anyone....

If I was an extremist, I'd immediately be offended by Trump again - this time it would be because he is taking jobs away from the Mexicans, thereby murdering them.

In reality though, this is an excellent move - not only bringing employment to the community but also believe it or not 'Made in USA' equipment comes with piece of mind that it won't break upon opening the box, among other attributes.

....and just like in real life - you get what you pay for so any mobilization and production costs/overheads resultant from moving back to the US will be cancelled out by exceptionally higher manufacturing standards, warranties and everything else that goes with that Made in USA label.

That is good news. I wonder if the 2500 jobs they speak of are just in the plant itself when up and running. Billion dollar renovation of an existing building will take some time. Over a year for sure. So that means That means there will be several hundred men and women making at least $1000 a week on a 40 hour week for that year. Throw in some overtime and looking at a $80-$100,000 dollar year.

In my trade, sheet metal, that project will put shop guys to work building duct and whatever else, truck drivers , suppliers.... plus every food joint, bar and gas station in the area will see an increase in business during construction.

You know, I'm willing to hold the president to a higher standard for his actions in the oval office. If trump starts dillying interns with cigars, I'll be disgusted and appalled. Luckily, I don't think we have to worry about that.

I enjoy reading your posts. Your first section about murder made me laugh!

good start lets hope its the beginning of a trend.

I must admit its weird to see a president managing to full fill some campaign promises that they were very clear on pre-election.

Bills affair didn't bother me. I felt sorry for him, he was married to Hillary at the time and she was very headstrong and independant. She seemed to be running the show back then from the side

I sure wouldn't want to be married to Hillary. My mother was sort of like that, a busy body who was more into impressing others than being a part of the family.

Many companies have found that manufacturing in Mexico is not always easy.
Sure the labor is cheap.
But you get what u pay for.
I have done work for several companies that have plants in Mexico and when the parts arrive they need to be inspected and often time reworked.
They discovered that they actually lost money.

This is good news for Michigan, but I do wonder how many of these employees ed I'll be "dreamers"?
Lol, I can take a guess....0000

Used to be Chevy and Ford, the two main players, all American, and a scattering of secondary brands, but now in Europe there seems to be two main players Fiat and Volkswagen. Not even Rolls, Bentley or BMW are who we think they are. Anti-Trump players gripe all you want, we are prospering....

Really? I haven't seen it. Apparently, most of ATS hasn't either. A case of MSM avoidance? Have you a link to confirm that?
