“Henrik Fisker said the U.S. money has been spent on engineering and design work that stayed in the U.S., not on the 500 manufacturing jobs that went to a rural Finnish firm, Valmet Automotive.”

From one ham to another, I believe him. I really do.

I'm reminded of the guy that goes to the racetrack promising to place the $200 trifecta bet for his buddy.
The buddy is ecstatic the next day when he reads the paper and his bets came in on the nose, but his friend laments that he was mugged on the way to the track and the muggers took his $200. Luckily, he had his own $200 hidden in his shoes.

The more common case is, $200 worth of groceries go on the EBT card, freeing up $200 to lose on the trifecta.
