Donald Trump visited Ford's facility in Ypsilanti and was told by Jim Hackett that 2,000 people work on the Bronco when production starts.

After he heard the news he called the Bronco a "big winner" and "great success". It was interesting to see given Ford's history with Trump.

Trump delivered the applause line Hackett gave him soon after he began speaking behind the podium at Ford’s ventilator-making facility in Ypsilanti, less than 40 miles southwest of Detroit. “I just heard you’re going to be having 2,000 more jobs right down the road for the Bronco,” Trump said. He called the Bronco -- which isn’t yet for sale -- a “big winner” and “great success.”

Apparently there were rumors that Ford showed Trump the Bronco uncovered during the visit. Ford is denying that they did.

A Ford spokesperson confirmed via email, however, that the camouflaged Bronco was brought in solely as a way to generate excitement for workers. While it might make sense for Ford CEO Jim Hackett and Chairman Bill Ford to court the president given their past differences on trade and foreign manufacturing, it appears they didn't use the new Bronco to do so.
