DETROIT (AP) — Fiat Chrysler says it’s investing $1 billion in its U.S. factories to create 2,000 new jobs and add three new Jeep vehicles including a pickup truck.
The company says it will put modernize a factory in the Detroit suburb of Warren, Michigan, to make the new Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer large SUVs. A plant in Toledo, Ohio, also will get new equipment to make a new Jeep pickup.
The announcement is a continuation of efforts to increase production of SUVs and trucks as the company gets out of the small and midsize car businesses. (link)
The Fiat Chrysler announcement comes on the heels of Ford’s recent announcement that it has cancelled plans to build a $1.7 billion plant in Mexico and will instead expand operations in Wayne Michigan.
Naturally, just like the stock market rally that’s been underway since the day after Trump won the election, expect Obama to take credit for this and other companies who, after 8 long years, have suddenly decided to move their operations back to US soil.
Idiot Democrats who have no respect for business to begin with may fall for that crap, but us ‘deplorables’ aren’t fooled one bit. We know exactly who to thank.
His name? El Don.
