“FCA US is further demonstrating its commitment to strengthening its US manufacturing base, ” the company said, adding that it has created 25, 000 jobs in the country since 2009.

The automaker said that Sunday’s announcement is the second phase of a plan announced in January 2016 to shift the assembly locations of a number of vehicle.

Details about FCA’s massive plant reshuffling plan began to emerge in 2015, ahead of contract talks with the UAW.

FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne said in a statement: “These moves, which have been under discussion with Dennis Williams and the rest of the UAW leadership for some time, expand our capacity in these key segments, enabling us to meet growing demand here in the U.S., but more importantly to increase exports of our mid-size and larger vehicles to international markets, ”

Trump promised in his campaign of creating industrial jobs in the American. This past week he took Twitter to blast automakers with operations or plans to build plants in Mexico.

Fiat Chrysler so far has escaped Trump’s Twitter wrath.
