Some U.S. companies are reviewing potential mergers while others are rethinking job cuts or looking at their manufacturing operations in China for fear of being cast as "anti-American" by President-elect Donald Trump, according to Wall Street bankers, company executives and crisis management consultants.Representatives of the $3.8 billion company declined to comment.Trump's aggressive anti-China rhetoric has also given some companies pause.Both Lockheed and Boeing have said they will work to drive down costs of the programs, while Ford scrapped plans to build a $1.6 billion plant in Mexico, and United Tech's Carrier unit is keeping half of the 2,100 U.S. jobs it was to shift to Mexico.There is already evidence that companies are quickly adjusting to the new Trump era.Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the No. 3 automaker in the United States, announced plans Sunday to create 2,000 U.S. jobs.
