Remember during the 2016 when Donald Trump was lambasting Ford for saying it would build the Focus in Mexico? That’s when the fat loser with the world’s worst comb over first threatened to slap a 35% import tariff on any cars made in Mexico for sale in the US. Former Ford CEO Mark Fields made a big show of standing up to Trump by announcing the Focus would continue to be made in America by American workers who pledge allegiance to the flag every morning before work.
Good News, Bad News
Now Fields is gone and new CEO Jim Hackett has good news and bad news for the Trumpenator. First the good news. Ford has decided not to move production of the Focus — its second largest selling sedan in America — to Mexico. Now for the bad news. Ford says it will move production to Chongqing, China and import the cars from there.
