President Trump is welcoming Ford Motor’s plans to expand production of cars and parts in Michigan.

In a tweet Wednesday, the president praised Ford over its plans to invest $900 million into manufacturing facilities in Flat Rock, Michigan.

President Trump reiterated that Ford wants to be where the action is after reports found lower taxes and a qualified workforce boost Michigan’s investment appeal.

Ford Motor Company said it will increase the production of electric and self-driving cars at its Flat Rock facility.
