In what’s being seen as an olive branch, Ford Motor Co. Chairman Bill Ford called President-elect Donald Trump this week to say the auto maker nixed plans to move production of a Lincoln sport-utility vehicle from Kentucky to Mexico.
And while there’s some question over the impact the move will have on jobs in the U.S., Fox News’ Stuart Varney said the outcome was “classic Trump.”
Either way, Trump took to Twitter Thursday night to declare victory.
Varney joined the “Fox & Friends” crew Saturday morning to explain what took place.
“Here’s what happened. Before the election, Donald Trump said ‘Hey, you build cars in Mexico and try to bring them back here, we’re going to punish you,'” he said. “He wins the election, Ford and the other car-makers get kind of worried.”
The next thing you know, Varney pointed out, Ford is calling Trump to extend an olive branch.
“Look, this is classic Trump. The man negotiates,” he said. “He sets up a hard line position… he’s waiting for the other side to make an offer.”
And the left “is classically worried that it might work,” Varney added.
