The article is about General Motors announcing a one billion dollar investment in its American plants.
But buried in the article is this:
In an interview Monday, GM general counsel Craig Glidden declined to confirm specifics of the announcement but said any investment the company might disclose has been long planned and isn’t a response to pressure from Mr. Trump.
“This is something we’ve been undertaking for some period of time,” he said. “It’s really getting our story told in a way that is I think complete and fulsome.”

You see, it was all planned many, many moons ago. This kind of thing usually is.
Some of those jobs may well be for robots anyway.
Donald Trump: making American robots great again (while he and his daughter have their clothing, accessories, shoes and even teddy bears manufactured in cheap Communist Chinese sweatshops).
