Personally, I absolutely love this campaign. You want Americans to have jobs? Look for the Made in America logo. Mr. Williams is dead on when he says that Americans should buy American. And it should be easier to tell where that vehicle you are about to buy was assembled. Just because it says Ford doesn't mean it was assembled in the USA. The same with a Honda, it could have been assembled in the USA. Support American workers and jobs. Look for the Made in USA on what you buy.
Local, County, State, and Federal Government Agencies should be exposed and shamed when they purchase vehicles assembled outside of the USA. I agree with President Trump wanting to impose a tariff on vehicles assembled outside of the USA. Protect American jobs.
- Dodge Charger is assembled in Brampton, Ontario, Canada.
- Ford Interceptor is assembled in Chicago, Illinois.
- Ford Interceptor Utility is assembled in Chicago, Illinois.
- Chevrolet Caprice PPV is assembled in Australia.
- Chevrolet Tahoe Police Patrol Vehicle is assembled in Arlington, Texas and Toronto, Canada.
UAW heads back 'Buy American' campaign, praises Trump
The president of the United Auto Workers union declared Thursday that the "Buy American" movement is back, praised President Trump for criticizing outsourcing and reiterated his call for the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.
UAW President Dennis Williams told reporters he's "in discussions" to air TV commercials promoting urging all to "Buy American" and wants to make it easier for consumers to identify foreign-made vehicles at car dealerships.
"We’re seeing a trend in this country — the boycott may be coming back," Williams said, saying the "Buy American" push is gaining steam for the first time in "many, many years." He also says his union is gaining steam, pushing ahead to organize at auto plants of foreign makers in the U.S.and at Tesla Motors, the upstart electric car maker.
For now, Williams says he has one basic message to consumers: "If it was not built in the United States, don't buy it."
