Yesterday the CEO of Ford welcomed President Biden to an F-150 plant in Dearborn, Michigan:
Our whole team was so honoured to have President Biden drive our new F150 Lightening Electric Pickup in Dearborn and meet our team! Think he liked it, so does America – #1 vehicle and truck. Tomorrow evening Ford shows the world this new 100% American Innovation! https://t.co/c0ZvXXVJuq

That’s some Obama-level timing right there!
Impeccable timing to make this announcement less than 24 hours after Biden visit. https://t.co/1BcAy9Zbvt

According to reports, two Ford plants that manufacture the gas-powered versions of the F-150 will be down at least two weeks, so maybe that’ll make the Democrats happy for a while on a climate change level.
