Volvo is set to open its first-ever U.S. plant in South Carolina and is projected to bring 4,000 American jobs with it.

Anders Gustafsson, the company’s senior vice president for the Americas, gave “Fox & Friends” a brief tour of the plant Wednesday and said its decision has nothing to do with President Donald Trump’s election victory, or his policies on trade(RELATED: Michigan Made Great Again With $1 Billion Chrysler Investment)

“We are smart, but we are not so smart,” Gustafsson said, after being asked if the company knew Trump was going to win in 2016.

The plant anticipates to open 4,000 jobs to the United States, according to Gustafsson, and will be exporting cars from America to places all around the globe.

“We have a strategy to build where we sell,” he said. “We are growing in the U.S., plus 41 percent. And then in this area, you have the suppliers. You have a great port, and that is important for us because we are going to export cars.”

Gustafsson concluded that Volvo is a “global company.”
