    He should ask Japan and Germany to leave. That is pull their (second tier) investors. Why?
    We have the technology to make great automobiles. We can make great cars.
    I have a 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier from Ohio with 102K miles. It just needed a slave cylinder, and the clutch was still had a quarter of its usefulness. I've been told that the engines like ford f150 can go for hundreds of thousands of miles.
    We have the science to power them efficiently.
    We can get 85 percent efficiency or better for fuel, and even better for friction and aerodynamics.

    What happened:
    1, The 1 percent (tier 1 businesses) were greedy to the point of (to achieve a capitalist goal of) wealth taking from the commoners (tier four economics). The top auto businesses figured a way to sell millions of auto's, and yet claim a loss year over year.
    They enslaved their employees.
    2. We won't talk about steel plating sales to the military, the aristocracy, and profit taking at the end of VN war.
    3. Budget cuts from capitol hill caused many government agencies to sacrifice engineering precision for the cheapest bidder.

    Never-the-less, we can make cars, and we can share the wealth. First, we can make them for us. They will be so good everyone in the world will want them. And as a whole, we will be happier.

    For North Korea, we should tell them we are not going to harm them, but we are going to enter into economic cooperation with them, and that China is going to have full economic trade power with them. They will be told that Japan will be the primary trade partner with South Korea, and that China will maintain an seabound anti-priracy force in the Sea of Japan. We should sell NK our automobiles. Somewhere down the line NK and SK will trade, and the neural pathways will be created to repair the injured nerve.

    There is no guarantee a multinational corporation like Ford will keep its profits in the US, so what's the problem with Toyota making cars here?

    So can they. And if they give jobs to Americans, I am all for that.

    Does point of origin matter more than quality?

    BTW no, we can't get 85% efficiency from fuel. The theoretical maximum efficiency for an Otto cycle engine is about 46%. Some cars (like the Prius) come close to this, with engines that have efficiencies of about 40%. (Note that they do this by not using a true Otto cycle; they use a modified Atkinson cycle.) The only way to get to 85% is to use an electric vehicle. When trickle charged (i.e. via a 12-amp "convenience" charger) and driven conservatively, a small EV like a Leaf can hit 85% efficiency, plug to wheels.

    Also it's pointless to talk about "efficiencies" of friction. Friction does not have an efficiency; it is loss.
