Trump touts new US BMW factory. But that’s not happening
(CNN) -- BMW is considering building a second plant in the United States. President Donald Trump is heralding that as proof his trade policies are creating American manufacturing jobs, but BMW says its plans date back years and remain uncertain. The German automaker said if it goes ahead with plans for a US engine plant, it is because it needs to supply engines to its North American assembly plants. It is expanding its existing US assembly plant and is due to open another assembly plant in Mexico next year.
