The Biden-Harris regime has constantly declared that “America is back” to the collective amusement of our geopolitical foes, now the inevitable result of this “America Last” policy has come home to roost. According to sources in Detroit, the Ford Motor company has chosen not to honor it’s promise to the auto-workers of Ohio. Ever since Biden promised to repeal President Trump’s growth triggering tax cuts this outcome became inevitable.
Gerald Kariem, Vice President of the United Auto Workers Union wrote a letter Friday indicated that Ford had informed him that they will not be manufacturing their next generation vehicle in Ohio as they had promised the Trump administration and the local UAW union.
The Detroit Free Press reports.
“Unfortunately, Ford Motor Company has decided it will not honor its promise to add a new product to OHAP and, instead, it intends to build the next-generation vehicle in Mexico,” Gerald Kariem, also head of the union’s Ford Department, wrote in a March 12 letter to UAW Local 2000,”

According to the DailyWire Kelli Felker, Ford global manufacturing and labor communications manager, responded to an inquiry about the matter by saying:
“We are always looking at our options. We still plan to invest $6 billion and create and retain 8,500 jobs in America during the course of this four-year contract. We are invested in Ohio Assembly Plant and our dedicated workforce there. Since 2019, we have invested more than $185 million and created and retained more than 100 jobs at Ohio Assembly Plant, including actions planned for this year. This includes increasing our capacity to build additional Super Duty trucks at Ohio Assembly Plant to meet strong consumer demand.”
In 2019, Ford made a commitment to invest $900 million at its Avon Lake, OH plant – NOW, it's reportedly moving the entire project to…
This is unacceptable. At today's Senate Finance Committee hearing, I called on Ford to keep its promise to Ohio workers. pic.twitter.com/PlMDeoqTZ1
