President-elect Donald Trump said he was going to make America great again, so whatever is happening with Mexico, that’s on them.
Word out of Mexico is they are semi-shaking at the possibilities of losing more American business when Trump takes charge on January 20th. Just think, it’s way past time for a leader on our side to have the interest of its citizens before everyone else and Trump is just the man to do that.
Mexico should worry. They’ve been poaching businesses for years and giving promises to our companies for years. Now it’s time to face the music.
From Associated Press:
Ford Motor Company’s cancellation of plans to build a $1.6 billion auto manufacturing plant in San Luis Potosi has sounded alarms throughout Mexico.
Even as the country is being rocked by rowdy nationwide protests against a Jan. 1 gasoline price hike, the Ford news led the front pages of Mexico’s most influential newspapers on Wednesday, and they tied the development directly to President-elect Donald Trump.
“Trump leaves Mexico without 3,600 jobs,” read the headline on El Universal. “Ford’s braking jolts the peso,” said Reforma, referring to the Mexican currency’s nearly 1 percent slump following the news
“The jobs created in Mexico have contributed to maintaining manufacturing jobs in the United States which otherwise would have disappeared in the face of Asian competition,” the Mexico Economy Department said.
Mexicans have been nervous about Trump’s tough rhetoric toward their country, including disparaging remarks about immigrants who come to the U.S. illegally and vows to wall off the border and renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, upsetting ties with what is by far Mexico’s largest trading partner.
