There are still losers and losing - almost daily if you get nostalgic. Meryl Streep was a big loser yesterday for example.

As a Toyota owner, I’m pleased with this news. Although I must admit that the reason I bought my older-model Toyota (when it was new) was because it was one hundred percent manufactured and assembled in Japan and I trusted the quality of Japanese manufacturing.

Obama haters - just trying to make our boy-king's stellar record in the kingdom look bad!

Waiting to do this just before Trump assumes office by adding $$$$ to the U.S. automotive plant(s) is just plain mean!

I mean, just think about it, you’re a liberal Democrat union goon who has been waiving the Obama/Clinton flags for 8 long years, you’ve been watching production go overseas again and again, and this bozo isn’t even president yet, and he’s accomplished more US investment commitments from companies in two months than Obama did in 8 years.

Isn’t there some kind of mercy rule that pops into effect once the total goes over 100 billion?

There is a small part of me that is sort of depressed.

how is it that Trump can do this before he even gets into office but for years..including Bush...the jobs just kept leaving....with so many out of work.

sigh...

Thank God For Trump.

What's going on here? Is Toyota a bunch of white populists? White nationalists? That's only 10 billion and one company. Mark Levin is not impressed!

Steep’s speech was rambling and insipid. What a was particularly grating was the voice she used while speaking, it was too low, too slow, too much of a whisper - very offputting.

Discussed it with my wife this morning - she rightly pointed out that Toyota sets up plants here to sell their wares here - they don’t send them back to Japan. Any company that wants to set up in a foreign market needs to sell its product in that foreign market instead of expecting the American People to subsidize those markets.

Oh my. This is going to upset all the globalists who have been working to make all nations uniformly poor since that's the only way to achieve equality as per the socialist's definition.

Hopefully Americans now realize it's not necessary for us to starve so that elites can congratulate themselves on making all men equal.

The Toyota investment must have been planned for months if not years. But it was a good time to announce it. Previous Presidents didn’t think it was in their job description to pressure companies to keep jobs in the US. But you need more than the bully pulpit to persuade companies on this issue, you need policy changes.Trump is reinventing the Presidency.

“I must admit that the reason I bought my older-model Toyota (when it was new) was because it was one hundred percent manufactured and assembled in Japan and I trusted the quality of Japanese manufacturing.”

Apparently, one of the Toyota 4 cyl. engines made in the US and installed between 2007 and 2011 suffers from excessive oil consumption. The problem is so bad that my local independent repair shop, which specializes in Hondas and Toyotas, advised us not to buy a used Toyota for princess riverdawg if it had that engine. We bought her a used Honda CRV instead.

Isn’t telling it took these great Americans Dr. W. Edwards Deming, Dr. Joseph Juran, Philip Crosby & others... to turn around the junk coming out of Japan after the second world war!

My first reaction was boredom. Okay, another Trump win, not really worth reading beyond the headline. $10B is a lot of jobs, and a political junkie like me is bored? President Trump looks likely to keep his promise on winning, and he is not even in office yet.
