“From Ford’s perspective the metals tariffs took about $1 billion in profit from us,” CEO James Hackett said at a Bloomberg conference in New York,

Hackett continues to whiff as Ford CEO. Outside of stockholders and Ford employees who get a profit based bonus no-one give a whit about Ford's profits. Tell customers how much more their new car will cost as Ford passes the tariff along, like WalMart is, and people will take notice. Even then, people buy at WalMart a lot more often than they buy a new Ford.
