Fiat to invest $1 billion in Michigan, Ohio

Just watch - even though the announcement makes it clear they were going to do this before Trump won the election, he'll still try to take credit.

Fiat to invest $1 billion in Michigan, Ohio plants, create 2,000 jobs

Quote:
The announcement, in what the company said was the second phase of a plan it first made public a year ago, came days after Ford Motor Company decided to scrap a plan to build a facility in Mexico, instead opting to invest in a plant in Michigan.

Ford's CEO cited demand, rather than the policies of President-elect Donald Trump, who has vowed to impose a "border tax" on companies that send jobs abroad.

"Consistent and combined with previously announced investments, FCA US is further demonstrating its commitment to strengthening its U.S. manufacturing base, and aligning U.S. capacity to extend the Jeep product lineup," FCA said.

He will just ignore that, by his own logic, sole credit for this should go to Obama.

I don't think it should be credited to anyone but Fiat. They are getting more popular in the US these past few years and the next logical step for them was to build a plant here.

We should also probably credit brave, red-blooded Americans bold enough to buy a Jeep..... THAT'S courage.

Trump is as predictable as sunshine and night.

Trump falsely takes credit for new jobs, Part VII | MSNBC

Quote:
Donald Trump, pulling a very familiar trick, boasted this morning on Twitter that Fiat-Chrysler “just announced plans to invest $1 billion in Michigan and Ohio plants, adding 2,000 jobs.” In a follow-up tweet, the president-elect thanked the company.

Trump, however, didn’t have anything to do with the investment he seems eager to take credit for.

FCA, the U.S. arm of automaker Fiat-Chrysler, announced on Sunday that it would invest a total $1 billion in plants in Michigan and Ohio, which will add 2,000 new jobs in the United States.

The announcement, in what the company said was the second phase of a plan it first made public a year ago, came days after Ford decided to scrap a plan to build a facility in Mexico, instead opting to invest in a plant in Michigan. Ford’s CEO cited demand, rather than the policies of President-elect Donald Trump.

If it seems as if this is becoming a daily occurrence, with Trump celebrating new jobs as if he had something to do with them, you’re not far off.

...and yet the latest mass-shootings (and anything else negative that happens) are and will continue to be "Obama's fault", until the 20th of January.

Wait... who am I kidding? The negative events will still be Obama's fault, after January 20th! I momentarily forgot how GrOPesters operate.

Fiat does own Chrysler - which means Dodge, Jeep, Ram trucks, as well as Chrysler.

I am not sure which is worse, that he takes credit for it, or that a lot of those workers will believe him?

EPA Accuses Fiat Chrysler of Excess Diesel Emissions

cough cough Thanks Donald.

(Is that a meme yet, thanking Trump for bad stuff, the way they made Thanks Obama a meme?)
