Trump calls Ford building plant in Mexico "an absolute disgrace"

DETROIT, April 5 (Reuters) - U.S. Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said the move by Ford Motor Co to build a manufacturing plant in Mexico "is an absolute disgrace" and shows the need to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Earlier on Tuesday, Ford confirmed plans to build a plant in San Luis Potosi and an investment of $1.6 billion.
