Contrary to Donald Trump’s claims that “thousands” of Ford (NYSE:F) jobs are leaving Ohio, the Dearborn-based automaker has actually moved production from Mexico to Ohio, a key a battleground state, a company spokesperson said.
“Nope. In fact, we insourced production of F650 and 750 [trucks and tractors] from Mexico TO Ohio,” Christin Baker, spokesperson for Ford told me when asked about Trump’s allegations.
From 2000 to 2014, the F-650 and F-750 were manufactured in Mexico. But in 2014, production shifted to Avon Lake, Ohio.
