President Barack Obama will visit Ford Motor’s Kansas City Assembly Plant in Missouri on September 20, 2013, reports The Detroit News.
Obama, who made the $85 billion auto bailout a cornerstone of his 2012 re-election bid, is visiting Ford’s plant to tout the fact that others benefited from the rescue of the economy. Ford did not receive a government bailout.
