President Biden’s America Last policies are driving American jobs out of the U.S.
The Ford Motor Company is planning to move the production of a new vehicle from Ohio to Mexico, a move that would impact American jobs in the automotive industry.

Production of the new vehicle product in Ohio was expected to add another 1,600 jobs.
“This whole new product line was going to add an additional 1,600 employees basically doubling the number of workers at the Ohio truck plant. That announcement yesterday said no, that’s not going to happen,” said Avon Lake Mayor Greg Zilka.
Ford was blasted by UAW Vice President Gerald Kariem in a letter to its members on the matter and the union vowed to “take action.”
The Daily Mail reports:
‘We 100% reject the company’s decision to put corporate greed and more potential profits over American jobs and the future of our members. We expect the company to honor its contractual commitments to this membership and when it fails to do so we will take action,’ Kariem wrote in the letter.

Critics commented on social media.
This was what Trump stopped from happening. The man wanted companies to remain in the US and keep Americans employed. Looking back it's fair to say he was a great President. Trump was good for America's economy.

Although the UAW leadership endorsed Biden during the presidential election, his policies are harming union workers.
From Biden’s war on fossil fuels to tax hikes, companies are not incentivized to stay in America and Ford Motor Company is a textbook example of Biden’s America Last agenda.
