The chief executive of Ford Motor Co. says Donald Trump has his facts wrong when it comes to claims the Republican presidential candidate pressured the company into scrapping plans to build a plant in Mexico.

Mark Fields says Tuesday that the automaker has not talked to Trump or made any recent changes to its manufacturing plans.

Trump tweeted on Sunday that because of his constant criticism, Ford had canceled plans to build a plant in Mexico and would keep it in the U.S.

But Fields says Ford's decision to move heavy truck production from Mexico to Ohio was made in 2011. Production began in Ohio in August.

Fields says that, "Facts are stubborn things." He adds that politics appears to be getting in their way.
