President Donald J. Trump made an announcement in a Wednesday tweet about a major investment from Ford Motor Company.

Trump tweeted, “Great news from @Ford! They are investing nearly $1 BILLION in Flat Rock, Michigan for auto production on top of a $1 BILLION investment last month in a facility outside of Chicago. Companies are pouring back into the United States – they want to be where the action is!”

CNBC reports:

Ford is building a new plant in Michigan for autonomous vehicles as the company realigns some factories to focus on its future lineup of self-driving and electric cars.

The new facility, scheduled to open in the next two years, will take new commercial-grade hybrid models and incorporate the self-driving technology needed to turn them into autonomous vehicles. Ford is still considering where to build the AV finishing center and has not said how many people will work there.

“This facility will be about more than just putting the brains into these autonomous vehicles,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of global operations. “We will use the AV production center to upgrade the interiors and add the technology customers will want for a particular self-driving model.”

In another tweet, Trump highlighted a touching video about a soldier who was returning from a 10-month deployment overseas. He surprised his son upon his return in a unique way. Trump captioned the video, “Really beautiful to see!”
