BREAKING: Ford Just Sent HUGE ‘F You!’ To Trump After He Saved Them And The U.S. Automobile Industry Ford’s new CEO, Jim Hackett, is a major jerk because he’s planning to have the Ford Focus built in China and shipped back to the USA.

This move completely snubs Americans of jobs and tosses a sausage in Trump’s proverbial face as Hackett completely disses his country and fellow Americans. Will Ford’s decision to build the Focus in China and export them to the US go under the radar like similar decisions to shift manufacturing jobs overseas while Barack Obama was President? Will President Trump all...
