In an interview with the Detroit Free Press over comments by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump that Ford was moving jobs and production of the Ford Focus to Mexico, Bill Johnson said, "We hate to see the products go to Mexico, but with the Ranger and the Bronco coming to Michigan Assembly that absolutely secures the future for our people a lot more than the Focus does."

Johnson is the plant chairman for UAW Local 900.

Last year, negotiations between the union and Ford leaked that a new product would be made at the Michigan Assembly Plant in 2018, Autoweek reported.

The Bronco was first introduced with the 1966 model year and was discontinued in 1996, replaced by the Ford Explorer.
