Trump condemns Ford over its cooperation with California

United States President Donald Trump slammed the leadership of Ford Motor Co. while adding that the State of California will "squeeze [car companies] to a point of business ruin" through its emission regulation.

"Henry Ford would be very disappointed if he saw his modern-day descendants wanting to build a much more expensive car, that is far less safe and doesn’t work as well, because execs don’t want to fight California regulators... Only reason California is now talking to [car companies] is because the Feds are giving a far better alternative, which is much better for consumers," Trump tweeted.

Earlier, regulators from California reached a deal in July with Ford, Honda, Volkswagen, and BMW to agree to make cars which meet its higher fuel efficiency standards, thus challenging Trump's plans to loosen emission regulations.
