Trump's call for new auto plants collides with reality
from The Detroit News
President Donald Trump is pressing automakers to build new factories in the U.S., but he may have to settle for plant overhauls and incremental job expansions such as Ford Motor Co.'s planned $1.2 billion investment in three Michigan factories that's expected to create at least 100 jobs. Trump pushed automakers during a roundtable in Ypsilanti Township earlier this month for more U.S. plants, and in a speech to autoworkers the same day he said plants "are coming back — other plants that were expected to be built in other countries are not being built."
