    Cause Trump keeps using the Magic Wand to bring back manufacturing jobs that Obama said were gone forever

    But go ahead voters and be sure to put those anti-American global redistributionists back in power because they speak so fondly of 3rd world conditions

    Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is investing $1 billion in a Michigan truck factory and paying worker bonuses in the wake of a U.S. tax cut, gestures that could come in handy amid major policy matters being sorted out in Washington.

    The Italian-American automaker will share the spoils of a lower corporate tax rate by sending $2,000 checks to about 60,000 U.S. workers. Fiat Chrysler also will spend more than $1 billion and add 2,500 jobs at a factory near Detroit to produce heavy-duty Ram pickups that the company has been making in Mexico.

    "It is only proper that our employees share in the savings generated by tax reform and that we openly acknowledge the resulting improvement in the U.S. business environment by investing in our industrial footprint accordingly," Chief Executive Officer Sergio Marchionne said in a statement.

    oh well, since the biggest establishment globalist pub in the senate confirmed it then it must be true

    because it's not like these two aren't working together against Trumps plan on the DREAM act

    https://www.c-span.org/video/?431579-1/senators-durbin-graham-reintroduce-dream-act

    c'mon.....those two are just another and obvious example of the false choice we have always had between the two parties

    All I know is that the two people who represent the establishment within their both parties who are pushing an alternative plan to what Trump is proposing are the only two that came out saying that Trump allegedly said whats in question

    so of course it dominates the news

    Fiat Chrysler to invest more than $1 billion in Michigan plant and give $2,000 bonuses in response to tax reform

    Fiat Chrysler announced Thursday that it will up its investment in the United States and pay some of its employees special bonuses after the recent tax code overhaul.

    CEO Sergio Marchionne said in a statement that these announcements reflect the company's ongoing commitment to manufacturing in the U.S. He also cited the recently signed tax bill as an opportunity to share the savings with Fiat Chrysler employees. The automaker said it will invest more than $1 billion in a Michigan plant and relocate production of its Ram Heavy Duty truck in 2020. That model is currently being produced in Saltillo, Mexico.

    Fiat Chrysler said this decision would create about 2,500 jobs in addition to the ones that have been previously announced.

    The company said it will also pay 60,000 of its U.S. employees bonuses of $2,000 each. Fiat Chrysler said these bonuses would not include senior leadership.

    The only think really new may be the timing of the announcement. Fiat-Chrysler has been expanding truck plants in the US for several years.
    http://fortune.com/2016/07/26/fiat-chrysler-plant-redesign/
    Seems the plans to modernize and expand the Warren plant had been in the works for at least a year and a half.

    This is an additional announcement

    if you read the article, this update calls for an additional 2,500 jobs above the initial plans.

    not to mention the $2,000 check that 60,000 employees will be receiving


    but nice try.....someone queue up Trump dancing again! and keep voting for politicians who sell this country out because they talk nice about s..t holes

    because it's coincidental that the two establishment hacks that are working together against Trump on this issue are the only two to have heard it


    sorry for being skeptical but those two have been pushing the globalist anti-American globalist agenda together for years.


    like I said, a clear example of the false choice we've been sold over the years

    If it happened while Obama was president, it doesn't count. That was just the Derp State trying to make Republicans look bad.

    My post concerned the Sterling Heights plant, but it also mentioned the FCA was planning on expanding the Warren plant and that an announcement regarding that plant would be made in the future (like now).

    That's great....I'm sure that the recent tax reform played a role in either the amount to be invested or the timeline that its set to happen within

    Got it. Lindsey Graham is only credible when he sides with Trump.

    has that happened yet?

    either way, the credibility goes down when the only two people who heard it are the two working together against trump's proposal

    Nobody but Trump denied the statement was made. Two other people apparently were not listening, which is understandable when you hear Trump speak. Maybe they have a preference for complete sentences?

    Durbin and Graham had no reason to gratuitously accuse Trump of the statement.

    I get that there is a group--vocal here-- that cannot agree that Trump does anything wrong.

    BTW: Trump is the establishment. If you do not think so, you have not paid attention to his businesses.

    Yep, that's 2500 more jobs, but can we please stop pretending that businesses weren't expanding in the U.S. prior to 2017? And while we're at it, we could stop pretending the stock market wasn't going up, bonus weren't being given out, and unemployment wasn't going down prior to 2017 too. Save that crap for people who weren't paying attention, because it doesn't fool anybody on a politics forum.

    Much, much faster? I guess it depends on what and when you're looking at. Either ways, as I've said before let's talk about this 3 years from now. We already know what the stock market did under the entirety of Obama's presidency.

    http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2018/jan/08/how-trump-obama-compare-stock-market/

    For instance, Trump’s comparison falters if you look at the Dow’s performance between Inauguration Day and Jan. 5 of a president’s second calendar year in office, rather than Election Day.

    Starting with Trump’s inauguration, the Dow has risen from 19,827.3 to 25,075.1 -- an increase of 26 percent. That’s impressive.

    But it’s not as impressive as its performance during the equivalent period under Obama. Under Obama, the Dow increased from 7,949.1 to 10,572 — a rise of 33 percent.

    In fact, the Dow’s rise was even more impressive under Obama if you start measuring at the market’s low point, on March 9, 2009, during the depths of the Great Recession. That day, the Dow closed at 6,547. Between then and Jan. 5 — a 10-month period — the Dow rose by a stunning 61 percent. That’s more than three times faster than Trump’s rise over the same period in his term.
