Ford employees ask the company to stop making police cars

"Motor Company is out with a Ah, process that they're going through about 100 employees have gone public with their request to the automaker to stop selling police vehicles because Police are brutal and they're racist. Ford executives are weighing the request and have not yet made an announcement. But there's a lot of pressure on social media for Ford to tell police departments they will no longer sell. The vehicles to them. So what is Toyota get vehicles them selling, you know, picking up the slack market share because right now serious, San Diego has Toyota four runners the SUVs. So I mean, thie employees air urging the cut that their boss the company do not make and sell. Ah police units. Ah, police cruisers to city so that Some other. There's still gonna be police cars. Why would you not want to get your fair share of that market place? If your employees of Ford apparently, these people don't want their jobs, I mean, I would put them on the top of the list of fire. All right, somebody safe and your name to the layoff list If we lose the contract, you know, with the Tuscaloosa, Alabama Police Department that you're the 1st 1 to relinquish your well, why don't you just quit forward then? I mean, why? Why? Why does four have to stop making the product? That's what they're in the business of doing is making automobiles. Yeah. Bia Social Justice warrior full time. You don't need to work out. Ford, you know, support is not consistent with your values. So be a social justice warrior. Put your money where your mouth is and quit your job, mate. This This is absurd. I've decided. I don't like it. Don't don't want to give Ah police Cruiser to Ah! Ah, car to the police. But does that mean that you also are going to use 901? I'd love to get the name of the 100 people and block their ability from their cell phone to dial 911 is apparently where they don't need no police and there's their community. They don't need cars. They don't need police. So no. 911 for you. I mean, this is where you start pointing out the Um, the bankruptcy of some of these folks in terms of what they're saying, their advocate and and the absolute absolute juvenile nature of these causes. I mean, this is child's play, right? I mean, this's not thoughtful. This isn't academic. This isn't deep. This isn't even You know, argumentative. I mean, this is this is just this is foolishness. This is this is child's play. The head of Ford has sent a letter to employees and it it reads in part, quote as we meet weekly in our global team huddles. Invariably there are questions that don't get answered, given the short time we have together. Or simply would be better addressed off line. On it goes on to talk about. Ah Ah, you know the fact that quote Bill Ford, and I believe deeply that there is no room for systemic repression and racism that have been exhibited by law enforcement encounters gone wrong. Um Your your product had nothing to do with it. Why are you taking ownership of part of the problem? You made the car. You didn't make the police officer or even the police officer's equipment or the rule book and I go back to having a CEO of a company. Come out with a statement like that. That that somehow they've made the judgment that racism was driving. Ah, ah, the inappropriate use of force. Again. I don't think we can say that. I think it's nice to say Well, if the cop is white, and the suspect was black, the victim was black. So therefore it must be racism. That's a pretty lousy assumption to be making. And to have a CEO of one of our largest companies come out and basically validate that and then go on in a what is a nine paragraph letter explaining how they're wrestling with this decision about literally saying we're not gonna sell cars to a pretty significant portion. You know, we had at least I think 600 800 cars. Andi. I know that these are not cheap cars. So let's say that there because they're there outfitted with a bunch of special equipment and stuff. So let's say that these cars are 50 grand each for the city of San Diego. Alone. That's a $40 million hit for Ford. For just a cycle of vehicles $40 million. That's just for San Diego Police department, then multiply that by all the police departments across the country. Your shareholder and Ford. Relatively ticked. Out on the opposite end of the spectrum. I'm not a shareholder in Ford. I'm relatively ticked. I'm just relatively tick that the company is taking this kind of stance. Whether they're toward with their emotions. It's the car. It isn't the attitude of the law enforcement official. It isn't It isn't anybody. It's it's the inanimate object, but yet they feel like that. Somehow they're contributing to systemic racism by manufacturing, a police unit. Now on the other end of the spectrum. A CEO of a food company paid a small compliment to President Trump. A Rose Garden ceremony yesterday. And now he is facing calls for resignation, and even members of Congress have urged people to boycott the food manufacturer.

"Investing owning up Bill Ford, general Atlantic CEO. I don't see the end of the road. I see it as an important milestone, and David McCormack Bridgewater associates pose C, E, O B look into level polarization today. It's very difficult to see how you could get some of the alignment, that would be needed all this, and more coming up in the next hour of Bloomberg best. I'm Doug krizner at Bloomberg world headquarters in New York. Let's check this hour's top business stories and the markets US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will meet with the head of the People's Bank of China. You've gone during the group of twenty gathering of finance ministers, and central bankers, that will be happening in Japan over the weekend here in the states, fed chair, Jay Powell signalled, his openness to cutting interest rates if necessary should US, China trade tensions, hamper growth later fed vice chair Richard Clarita seemed to echo Powell sentiment. However, Clarita sounded like using no rush to cut rates. He said the fed cannot be handcuffed to fluctuations in markets. Although a short while ago on Twitter, former US Treasury Secretary, Larry Summers wrote, the fed should cut by fifty basis points over the coming months, if not more to ward off risk of recession Toyota is warning. It's US dealers of the potential for auto parts cost to rise as the result of the Trump administration. Nations proposed tariffs on Mexican imports. The Japanese company said the tariffs could increased auto part cost by more than a billion dollars as well as hurt sales of Toyota's top selling truck after the battle here in the US sales force projected quarterly revenue above Wall Street estimates. The stock jumped more than two and a half percent in late New York trading. Salesforce, also raised its revenue projections for the fiscal quarter. It's a sign the market leader in customer relations software. We'll continue to see rapid growth. We check markets every fifteen minutes here on Bloomberg right now in Tokyo, the Nikkei two twenty five is up more than one point seven percent. Hang sang, better by one percent on the mainland Chung high composite up four tenths of one percent. The kospi had one half of one percent. And in Sydney, the ASX two hundred is better by seven tenths of one percent. Global news twenty four hours a day on air and a tick tock on Twitter, powered by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and analysts in more than one hundred twenty. Countries. This is Bloomberg. The Bloomberg invest New York conference brings together influential figures for in-depth discussions about the challenges and opportunities posed by a rapidly changing financial landscape and June among the speakers David McCormack co chief executive officer of Bridgewater associates. He told Bloomberg's David west in the US government's tools to respond to the next economic crisis are more limited than during the great recession a decade ago where long in the tooth on the expansion, and, and we're starting to see. And that, that growth has been highly affected by an enormous amount of stimulus fiscal stimulus monetary stimulus and now we're in the late part of the cycle, where you're starting to see. Growth slow and in normal environment. Policymakers would take a certain set of actions of the central banks would lower rates. We're not in a normal environment because of that prolonged period. The tools that are available to conventional conventional tools, available to policymakers are not there today. So we have we have a gauge that we monitor, which is called fuel in the tank, which is the combination of Monterey and fiscal policy. That's available to policymakers. It differs a little bit by region of the world, but the by and large is it significantly lower than it was during a period when, when I was in office more than ten years ago. And so the ability of policymakers to respond is much more limited. And so you're in a very narrow band is like policymakers walking along a ridge on and there's a very narrow band of flexibility. They have at their disposal and the situations, much more complicated because it said of externalities, as well or things that are not in their control. One is the trade dispute with China or the broader just people China we can talk about that in a minute. Another is some of the challenges in your, the risk of Brexit. The rise of populism in the United States and abroad. So policymakers are much more constrained than they have been in the past, and that suggests that there is a real downturn. They may have to rely on even more unconventional policies to stimulate the economy, something that would be very difficult and also very controversial. A lot of expectation the marketplace that there's going to be rate cuts more than one is what's price in the market right now this year? Is that going to have a material effect on growth? Of course. What the fed does have a material effect on growth and how it released expectations will have a material effect, and the challenge, of course, without openning on what the fed may or may not do is that the risk is very symmetric. And so this is the challenge that the central bankers face. Whereas if they tighten too quickly. The install the economy with low fuel in the tank their ability to respond to that as much more limited than it would have been under conventional environment at this point. What do you see the preparedness, the options the tool kit as you when there's next downturn? Well, if you think about that, that famous Mark Twain line, which history doesn't repeat itself, but it rhymes. There's I think some of that potentially going on today. So the, the next crisis, the next challenge that policymakers face is unlikely to look like the one that preceded at ten years ago. What's different today? Unfortunately, is the tools available as I just described are much more limited than they than they were at my time too much more limited in the conventional sense. In terms of just how much capacity the economy has to respond. There's somewhat limited in a structural regulatory sense based on some of the changes that have been made in from a legislative perspective. But I think the most important thing is, they're more constrained than ever because of the politics of the day. So if you go back to those days during the financial crisis two thousand eight period it was very controversial. But ultimately, both parties came together to take steps that happen under President Bush, and President Obama. And if you look at the level polarization today in the United States. I think it's very difficult to see how you could get some of the alignment that would be needed. And then if you imagine a crisis in Europe, the challenges are even more profound. So when you say to look at all the new just described to are low fuel tank as you say, global growth that appears to be slowing, or at least going sideways. Some real risks Huns at change, your investment approach or investment thesis, at Bridgewater. Why think we deal with big some of the big biggest global investors in the world? And I think the headline is that the conditions I described create a level bangs -iety about the future and then an enormous amount of uncertainty. So the question is, how do you play? How do you play that level of uncertainty? And, and the, the answers are likely to be around a balanced portfolio that's going to put you in a strong position to be able to offset that risk finding high-quality sources of uncollated alpha and recognizing that your competence level about your selection of any particular asset class should be appropriately humble.

Well, you started off nicely here at this show and around this show with the all new explorer, which is spectacular and that Mustang, which I foolishly thought was only seven hundred horsepower. But Bill told me, it's more. He's not supposed to. Because it is more and Kathy Kathy come to the family show. And she said you don't need that. I'm going to get that Mustang. I go now.

I have tremendous energy. So I was blessed with a optimistic father and mother, so I love these challenges, and but but it's great to be around people like you and our community here tonight. It's such a fabulous turnout and next year is going to be spectacular because we get to do it new. So just just hold on your hat. I think it's going to be fabulous in June of twenty twenty. I hope that Ford and General Motors and FCA and Mercedes and everybody else Audi Porsche, I hope they all come back into the fold in all realize just how important this show is to America. It is. And I've been talking to all of them and they're excited about this too. I think the pivot will help everyone come back, and I I know one German company that's gonna come back. Herbert was here from VW. They wanna they wanna be here next year. So that relationship that you have with them is helpful it's helpful and it's needed.

"As Bill Ford. Proud now on Colorado's morning news tumultuous Thursday for President Trump is defending his decision to risk a partial government shutdown if he doesn't get funding for his long promised border wall. We get into what with ABC's. Karen travers. Joining us live from the White House. Good morning. Karen morning. So he's seems like he's got this though. I keep hearing things that they have some funding. But they want more at Sarah Sanders says so what does the latest where do we stand at this on the latest is that last night the house passed a Bill that would fund the government give government funding through February eighth and five point seven billion dollars for the border wall. The president wants to build that's what he was insisting on Senate passed a version on Wednesday that did not include that money. Now, the Senate is expected likely to take up that house version Brown mid day today. But there is no chance it's going to pass it needs sixty votes. It means it needs Democrats, and that is not going to happen. So when that fails, then what does the house take up the Bill that the Senate passed the other day, which the president yesterday said he would not sign if that's the case, it's a stalemate and nothing happens and the government shutdown partially tonight at midnight. People seem to be crediting Fox News for this change of heart. What are you hearing? The president was getting hammered on this issue yesterday morning on Syria as well. And this whole kind of frothy criticism of the president. We're told really rattled him. And he was very upset with it yesterday. And while the White House earlier this week have been saying they didn't want to shutdown. The President Van was insisting he wasn't going to sign with the Senate had passed sounds like the president has many battles on different fronts. We mentioned tumultuous Thursday James Mattis, I guess resigning or retiring, whatever you wanna call it. What's the latest with and the presiding definitely leaving the administration, and this is the most consequential resignation from the president's cabinet, so far we certainly talked about a lot of resignation. He was seen as a steady hand, he had vast experience, and he's somebody who is very much respected and beloved by people who serve under him and who served with him, but he's based in his resignation letter got to a point where he just couldn't keep working with the president given their significant differences. He is expected to stay on until the end of February. But it's hard to see how he has any influence over the next two months. The president says he'll name a replacement soon. No sense of who that could be pretty stunning his resignation letter. You mentioned that how he talked about why he's leaving. And it's all about how the president treats our allies and countries that in the past have been enemies. Yeah. He said, my views on treating allies with respect and also being clear eyed about both malign actors and strategic competitors are strongly held. And here's a little bit informed by over four decades of immersion in these issues. He finished his letter by saying because you have the right to have a secretary of defense us are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects says, I believe it's right for me to step down. From my position merry Christmas. Hey, karen. Thank you and happy happy holidays. Thank you so much. She to all right is it's a very interesting. I've never seen this kind of a day right before a holiday, you can try to just slide just without too much chaos or drama, but in some of this is manufactured drama, not so much from from Madison, obviously because he is strong beliefs. But I think this whole partial shutdown as part of that. And I I know the president believes in his border wall. But are we at the point where so many lawmakers already at home for the holidays that he can't get the votes, even if they were there? Yeah. And I think maybe that you wonder if there's a little bit gamesmanship on both sides because it's saying pushing it this close to this to see if I'm going to get it through. But I still I still get the message out. I want it. But I'm still realize maybe I'm not going to get it. We'll be talking all about it. All morning long. Keep it here on Colorado's morning news on KOA NewsRadio coming.

"In engineering centers and invest in talent and and compete on the level of Twitter, hey, they, they have raised the bar and and Ford recognizes that and and and you know, you can't just try to get where they're at. You gotta overshoot that to to be able to go and compete enough, like through the leadership of day pair SaK is now moved on within the company. He's going to do great things in the company, but the leadership from Johanna Rick and Jim Farley Bill Ford Edsel Ford is greater than I've ever seen a racin and they wanna win championships. Yeah, that's something that's ludicrous for. Since two thousand four and it's hard to believe. And you think about that? Yeah, we've been so close and Jimmy Johnson guy got in her way. Couple ruined it for a lot of people feel bad, but but I'm proud and it's a great moment. And I would say that the what, how I characterize it as Ford's on offense, and that's what you have to be to to win races and compete for championships and, and we have a lot of work to do, you know. So when you see that seventy eight car. Yeah, Razan again, not that he was ever down but starting to come back. I think that's really motivation for us to to make sure that we're done every I and crossing every t to finish the season strong. And now we are very capable. But you know, Kentucky is a great race for us. We had eight cars and the top twelve. But the problem is we didn't win, didn't have the first one. Yeah. So I mean with somebody says, hey, that was a really good race. Well, today's standards, no, that's how Kevin Harvick looks at two. That's right position matters. That's right. And that's that's attitude. You have to have. And I hope we'll be positioned well and be able to bring it home for the four this year. That's gonna require obviously some some long term planning. And we've looked back a lot here when when a close, Doug, just by looking ahead a little bit. I was on siriusxm this morning and I had a caller who said, what's the deal with v eight engine, you know, the push rod, no, not just for relevance sake, but for competition sake, this guy was suggesting maybe NASCAR needs to start looking ahead here with the engine architecture. What would you like to see the directionally from NASCAR in terms of like, we're the engine goes, and then your vision on maybe like what NASCAR engines might look like five, ten twenty years from now? Yeah. Well, I think it's kind of back to what we talked about earlier. I think technology is important to keep people attracted to to our industry to our company. You know what I mean? You you wanna make sure you're working on things that are exciting and new and give them back to four Motor Company. We've done that through our work with four GT and loose engine. We've done that through our work with the Mustang engine. That's a five point, two liter VA. You know, those things are exciting. I think you have to plan. I think you have to be have a vision. On NASCAR. You know, we're working closely with them on what that vision looks like. I mean, how many years out could we have something that you know maybe looks more like a production base engine? Yeah. This all started with stock engines and stock cars, and I'm not opposed to listen. Look at that again, what is an engine out of a Mustang look like in a in a Mustang on the racetrack and the guy who drives it up to the track kind of seizes product on the track, and we're, we're making more power than what he drove to the track with, of course, because that's what we do. We live on the edge of performance and as long as they keep them racing in it and the competition in it, I think we should be thinking about more production, relevant technology and giving back and and keep in the manufacturers interested in what we're doing and and not just from a marketing effort to say they have their their logo on the car, the blue oval. But but how? How do we make sure that those things that race on Sunday get back to the cars that they make and let you know winning when you went on Sunday, you sell on Monday that still the reason why these..

"In this episode of boss files very insular culture. Ford was the entire auto industry was very insular culture and really shocked me. And I decided to see if I could help change that. And in the early years, there was a lot of frustration this son of a Ford and a Firestone Bill. Ford has gasoline in his veins. He says today, he's the executive chairman of the Ford Motor Company, but his decision to work at his namesake company was one that didn't come easily an avid environmentalist he says he was anything but welcome by many at Ford in the nineteen seventies. He was even told to quote, stop hanging out with environmentalist wackos today he's pushing Ford toward the future. Really every piece of our businesses changing the ownership model is changing the combustion model. The the way vehicles propelled is changing the way vehicles are going to be financed change on whose balance sheets they sit. We'll change three d. printing is. Coming and that will change manufacturing. Why he's bullish on the future of Detroit and Ford's role in reviving the American icon. Plus he weighs in on Ford's relationship with the Trump administration. And will he ever consider a run for office? Here's my conversation with Bill Ford. They'll four. Thanks for being here. Thank you property. It's a nice to have you. So I suppose I have to begin with what was the first car you ever own? I ever owned was a nine hundred seventy five Mustang, and I've had many, many Mustangs ever since funny story about this car though. So it was electric green. Wow. Yeah, metallic understated, very understated. And so it was a show color. What I didn't realize you can't take show colors into extreme temperatures. So I took it up to northern Michigan skiing over Christmas and what down below zero. I woke up one morning and the paint was lily standing straight up, like really ups. Yeah, who knew it was. Shame, but it was a great car you for people who don't know. Obviously, they know you grew up a Ford, the Ford family, but I don't think they know how much your life was all about cars and trucks from birth because you are the son of a Ford, a Firestone true. So yeah, I guess I've got gasoline in my blood rather than in my veins. But yeah, it was. It was pretty amazing actually. And just to hear the stories of the early days of the founding of Firestone and also Ford and the people that all came together. I mean, there were camping trips every year with Harvey. Firestone Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and whoever the president at the time was, and they would go every year to someplace Edison would string portable lights that he invented for those camping trips and my, you know, I used to hear stories about that many, many more things growing up. It was pretty neat. But then deciding to work at Ford was not a definite for you. I mean, you hear you are, and I think many people don't know this about you that you from your early days in college before were quite the environmentalists still are, and for you, you felt this poll internally this push pull of will, can I really be a true environmentalists and then go work for a car company? Yeah. And could I really be passionate about working at Ford and and could I make a difference? You know, it's interesting. When I look back, I went to Ford in nineteen seventy nine. The economy was was going off a cliff oil crisis was on, and you know, informed was in trouble. And I thought naively when I look back, gee, I should go to forty because maybe maybe I can help because everything I haven't life is due to fort and then once I got there, I was just appalled at the the mentality that existed throughout the company towards the environ. And frankly towards anything outside of Detroit. And you were appalled held your family's name, the bore, your family? Yeah, it was a very insular culture. Ford was the entire auto industry was very insular culture and really shocked me. And I decided to see if I could help change that. And in the early years, there was a lot of frustration. Is it true that when you were there, you know they, they literally looked at you and Saul you as a dangerous environmentalist. Wacko I think were some of the words. Yeah, stop associating with known or suspected environmentalists. I mean, really, this stuff happened. Yeah, that's when I joined the board. I was given that exact phrase and you know, and I said, no, somebody has to build bridges between the two communities because right now all anybody's doing is lobbing verbal bombs at each other and nothing is getting accomplished so. But yeah, there was a there was a feeling that anybody who didn't subscribe to group think was. Somehow dangerous college professor told you don't go work at Ford because you cannot be true to who you are. You camping environmentalists and work there. Did you almost take that advice? I did and I thought long and hard about it. And then I thought once I was there. All right. I'll take this year by year in every year. I'm going to reevaluate. You know, is this something I can live with and it's something I'm proud of, but it doesn't sound like the early years word that no one, I almost left actually a couple of times to pursue my environmental passions, but I had friends from the environmental community, say to me, look, if you can affect change internally, you can do so much more than you ever could outside. So if you can hang in there, do try to do it. So when did it turn? Well, you know, and it wasn't just on the environmental issues on a lot of things because that was, you know, when I say we were insular company, we also want a very curious company and and I think our industry wasn't
