Ford 'repackages' in wake of Trump twitter storm

DETROIT (AP) — Ford Motor Co. is repackaging a previously announced manufacturing investment in the Detroit area and now says it will spend $900 million and create 900 new jobs over the next four years.

Most of the new workers will build a new generation of electric vehicle at Ford’s existing factory in Flat Rock, Michigan, south of Detroit, which will see an $US850 million investment.

The company also plans a roughly $50 million autonomous vehicle manufacturing centre at an undisclosed site near Detroit that will add hardware to existing vehicles.

The announcement comes just after a three-day string of venomous tweets by President Donald Trump condemning crosstown rival General Motors for shutting down its small-car factory in Lordstown, Ohio, east of Cleveland.

Trump demanded that GM reopen the plant, criticized the local union leader and expressed frustration with GM CEO Mary Barra.
