Image result for ford moving to mexicoFord Motor Co. says it's moving all of its U.S. small car production to Mexico.

Ford CEO Mark Fields confirmed the long-expected move Wednesday during an event for investors and Wall Street analysts.

Ford currently makes its Fiesta subcompact in Mexico, but its Focus and C-Max small cars are made in suburban Detroit. Making them in Mexico would boost company profits because of low wages there.

Yes Charles S., but I had a wise and wealthy man tell me once that I should watch my pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves.

That old saying still applies today ! But as soon as the first credit card came out it encouraged people to spend money they did not have . How many time today do you see people paying with cash for anything ! It has gotten so unreal I've seen people pay for a pack of gum with a credit card and think nothing of it .

Detroit is a Democratic controlled abysmal failure with financial mismanagement and a landscape that looks like the aftermath of a nuclear holocaust!   Why waste money there when Mexico can benefit from job increase & keep immigrants from crossing the border.

Trump !!!.

Boycott Ford.

Asking if the union had anything to do with Ford's move is like asking if Obama has been good for this nation. And of course Ford has jumped on the cheap-labor bandwagon, but GM and Chrysler do not rate any better. With the highest corporate tax rate in the world, none of this should surprise us. Unions and Obama represent our "new America". Much more "change", is on the way.

Don't buy any Ford products.

Taxes, regulations, unions. Ford is doing what it needs to do in this anti manufacturing environment that started decades ago. We need Mr Trump to renegotiate trade policy and make make a more friendly environment for all businesses large and small.

We are already at a 35 year low for the number of manufacturing jobs in the US.

We now have around 12 million  manufacturing jobs compared to total manufacturing jobs. That makes for only 9% total manufacturing jobs as compared to all manufacturing jobs, which should alarm everyone. With Ford pulling out, it will also pull at least $7B of wealth out of the country. We desperately need TRUMP! to stop this.

Well I for one will never buy another ford.

I hope Mexicans are the ONLY ones they can sell these POS cars to!!

I guess I just don't understand the word trade. I always thought there was a difference between trading and buying. If we can grow it here, produce it here, why import it?

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
