Great Again: "Trump Effect" big part of Detroit Auto Show

Cobo Hall, site of Detroit
Auto Show
The globalism of Barack Obama is already in the rear view mirror of the auto industry.

From the Detroit News:
Automakers emphasized their commitments to build cars and trucks in the U.S. almost as often as they premiered new vehicles in the first days of the Detroit auto show.

Despite auto executives' repeated assurances that President-elect Donald Trump has not influenced their decision-making, the pledges came amid a steady stream of Twitter posts from Trump about building cars on U.S. soil.

The so-called "Trump effect" was palpable during the first two media days of the North American International Auto Show, while automakers wait to see if he delivers on campaign promises to renegotiate trade deals and slap tariffs on vehicles imported from Mexico and China — and hope they aren’t the next to be targeted.
