And Ford said their decision had nothing to do with Donaldo. They are still shifting low profit Fiesta/Focus to MX but expanding high profit trucks/SUVs in the US
The CEO of Ford said that Trump was definitely a factor in their decision though not the major factor.

Canada given advance notice of Trumpís NAFTA demands

Quote:
The Americans want to discuss country of origin rules and the independent dispute-settlement mechanism that are key features of the 1994 NAFTA pact, officials say.
Quote:
Still, a senior government official told The Globe and Mail the signals from Mr. Trump's trade team indicate the trade focus will largely be aimed at Mexico, essentially cutting the United States' southern neighbour out of many NAFTA benefits.

I agree.

People don't seem to understand Trump as a businessman. He doesn't want those "experienced" politicians who have been in politics for decades who are all about what to gain for themselves politically. He wants sharp and tough businessmen who have proved to be able to get things done.

I know know why so many Canadians are so bitter about it. Do they really think Hilary Clinton will do a better job running the country?

You know what, what will annoy them most is that unlike a typical politicians, I think Trump will actually do all the controversial things he said he would do, and that would be great!

It is just exciting to see the US and world turn a brand new page. Some real change, not the Obama kind pseudo-change he talked about for 8 years. Obama is an extremely mediocre president if not a total disaster, and people are like, hey, let's give him the third mandate by electing this greedy woman who is corrupted to the core! She is such an angle with all the "experience"!

Lots of Americans are looking forward to a Trump presidency, Botticelli. However, this is the Canada forum. How exactly is a Trump presidency great for Canada?

I know if I was hiring someone, I'd require they have some experience and this is MUCH bigger and more complicated than running a shop.

Change is good, but change for the sake of change can be disastrous if not thought out.

Just keep watching Botti, it's going to get interesting in the next year.

One year from today is next year.

I figure it will take a year. Purely a guess, some give him 6 months. Already some Trump supporters are regretting their choice.

Also, for us, it's easy to sit by the sidelines hoping it won't affect us too much. ( wishful thinking ) My concerns are no where near the concerns the majority of people in the US have, who are VERY concerned since it affects them directly.

It all depends on the kind of experience.....high end managers often do not need specific industry experience because they know how to manage and delegate...they know how to get the big picture.

Sometimes a specific focused experience can be an hindrance when you have to manage something very complex.

High end mangers don't, but the best do have SOME experience or at least an understanding of the business they are running.

Trump has NO political experience. You can't run a country like a business. However for the sake of argument, in your scenario he would at least surround himself with people who do, or at least one would think.

It isn't looking so good. I mentioned this in another thread. Would you trust the senior management if they gave you this to work with?
