President-elect Trump claimed to have scored his first win for American workers, just nine days after winning the election.

Trump tweeted Thursday night that he recently received a call from the Ford Motor Company Chairman Bill Ford, who told him the company has decided not to outsource its building of Lincoln Navigators in Kentucky to Mexico.

Trump credited conversations with Ford as the reason the mega-car company has chosen to keep the plants in the Bluegrass State.

Ford announced on Tuesday that it was going ahead with plans to move Michigan plants to Mexico, but closure of Kentucky production facilities have not been discussed publicly by Ford officials.

Ford has not responded to Trump’s statements.
