President-elect Donald Trump tweeted that he had a great talk with Ford Motor Company Chairman Bill Ford and said the automaker had agreed not to move Lincoln production to Mexico and keep it in Kentucky.
Just got a call from my friend Bill Ford, Chairman of Ford, who advised me that he will be keeping the Lincoln plant in Kentucky - no Mexico
I worked hard with Bill Ford to keep the Lincoln plant in Kentucky. I owed it to the great State of Kentucky for their confidence in me!
Ford representatives we contacted were initially wondering what Trump was talking about since the auto company has never said it plans to move production of the Lincoln MKC (a small SUV) out of the Louisville plant and to Mexico.
