Ford Motor Just Called Out Trump For Being The Liar He Is, And It’s Magnificent (TWEETS)

When it comes to people who suffer from narcissistic personality disorder and those who are egomaniacs, they tend to think that the world revolves around them. They see anything bad as another person’s fault, and anything good, they take full credit.

For instance, if Donald Trump starts to slip in the polls, it’s obviously the dumb voters in that state who don’t realize he’s the cat’s pajamas. Or say if Fox News says something bad about him – well, then, they’re just stupid and have no clue what they’re talking about. So, in turn, he takes his ball and goes home saying he never wants to see them again. However, just like when people give a whining child what they want, they come back, and come back with a vengeance as if their shit doesn’t stink.

Recently, Trump seems to think he can take credit for a number of actions taken by the Ford Motor Company. He tweeted on Sunday, apparently believing that his racist rhetoric somehow had something to do with Ford’s business decisions:

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

Word is that Ford Motor, because of my constant badgering at packed events, is going to cancel their deal to go to Mexico and stay in U.S.

Then, being the egomaniac that he is, follows with this tweet:

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

Do you think I will get credit for keeping Ford in U.S. Who cares, my supporters know the truth. Think what can be done as president!

And retweeting a follower:

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

@ObfuscateClear: Wow, imagine what he’ll do as President. Thanks @realDonaldTrump https://twitter.com/BlissTabitha/status/658378957071319040 …” FORD LISTENED TO ME, GREAT!

Yeah, imagine what he’ll do as president. He’d take credit for every good thing ever done since the Declaration of Independence, and sweep his failed business record and lack of any policy experience whatsoever under the rug. THAT’s what Trump would do as president.

Here’s the thing, Trump had nothing to do with Ford shifting truck production from Mexico to Ohio. According to Politico:

“As Northeast Ohio Media Group reported Monday, the GOP presidential candidate appears to have confused the automobile manufacturer’s expansion plan south of the border with the company’s decision to start production of medium-duty pickups that had previously been manufactured in Mexico. Production began four years after Ohio Gov. John Kasich, another presidential candidate, pushed tax incentives that included breaks for Ford’s plant in Avon Lake, Ohio, about 90 miles from Youngstown.”

Ford also released this statement:

“Ford has not spoken with Mr. Trump, nor have we made any changes to our plans. We decided to move the F-650 and F-750 medium-duty trucks to Ohio Assembly in 2011, long before any candidates announce their intention to run for U.S. president. We are proud that Ford has invested $10.2 billion in our U.S. plants since 2011 and hired nearly 25,000 U.S. employees. Overall, more than 80 percent of our North American investment annually is in the U. S., 97 percent of our North American engineering is conducted in the U.S.”

And according to Fortune:

“Trump’s concentration on Ford is completely unfounded considering two other major U.S. car manufacturers, General Motors and Fiat Chrysler, continue to invest abroad as well. FCA announced two years ago that it would invest over $1 billion in Mexican plants, and GM expects that it will invest $5 billion in the country between 2013 and 2018, or $1 billion per year. It’s notable that each of these three U.S. automakers continues to invest in the U.S. and create jobs at home.”

What’s most interesting about all of this, is that if any presidential candidate can take credit for the manufacturing jobs coming back to Ohio, it’s Ohio Governor John Kasich.

If Ford Motor Co. said what they’d likely really like to say to Trump it would be something like, “Shut the f*ck up, you’re a liar.” However, that probably wouldn’t go over too well PR-wise.

Trump’s one of those guys that likes to take credit for good things that happen, no matter who did it. He’d probably go so far as to say, “Yeah, the air, isn’t it great? We all breathe it and would die without it. It’s a good thing I thought of that decades ago. You’re welcome.”
