Winning Again: Fiat/Chrysler Version to build Jeep Wagoneer in US instead of Mexico — Alibaba next?

In our latest version of Winning Again with Donald Trump, Fiat Chrysler has stated that they would build trucks made in Mexico for the US, here in the US at the Warren Michi­gan plant. They will build the  Wagoneer line. A plant in Ohio will build anoth­er style of vehicle, a truck.

$1 billion in capital will be invest­ed in modern­iz­ing plants, and 2,000 jobs will be creat­ed.

Fiat Chrysler said Sunday it would spend $1 billion on U.S. manufac­tur­ing, includ­ing modern­iz­ing plants in Michi­gan and Ohio, in a move that’s set to add 2,000 new jobs, Reuters report­ed.

Accord­ing to the company’s plan, the plant in Warren, Michi­gan will be made capable of produc­ing a pickup truck current­ly built in Mexico.

The Warren plant will 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 move by Fiat Chrysler follows a similar recent announce­ment made by a compet­ing auto brand.

Once again, we are seeing that a Pro Business and Pro People Admin­is­tra­tion will create an environ­ment that makes business­es want to operate in the US.

Presi­dent Elect Donald Trump has not even taken office yet, and business­es are commit­ting to build or expand in the US. Imagine what happens AFTER he takes office and has been a couple of years in office.

Meanwhile, the Democ­rats are already trying to do every­thing in their power to stop Presi­dent Trump from putting his plans for the country in action.

One has to ask, whose side are the Democ­rats on?  The side of the US?  Or if not, then who?

Update #1 — Toyota

Toyota will spend $10 billion in capital improve­ments in the US over next 5 years. Per Reuters:

Toyota Motor North Ameri­ca chief execu­tive Jim Lentz said on Monday the Japan­ese automak­er will spend $10 billion in U.S. capital invest­ments over the next five years, match­ing its invest­ments over the prior five years.

The automak­er has come under fire from President-elect Donald Trump for announc­ing in 2015 plans to shift produc­tion of its Corol­la to Mexico from Canada. Lentz said in an inter­view at the Detroit auto show the decision is not a respon­se to Trump but part of the automaker’s business strat­e­gy to invest in the United States, where it has 10 plants in eight states.
