The Facebook founder and CEO toured a Ford assembly plant outside Detroit on Thursday, where he tightened screws and placed antennae on one of the company's F-150 trucks, even signing one's inspection sticker.

In a Facebook post, Zuckerberg recounted the visit — his first to Michigan — and showered praise on the employees that work at the plant.


"You have to be perfect, but the biggest challenge is having the focus to do the same thing over and over again," he wrote. "The people I met are so good they keep the line running at full speed and listen to audio books or music in one earbud to stay engaged."

Zuckerberg and his wife announced plans earlier this year to visit all 50 states.

He has denied speculation that he is considering a White House bid for 2020. Last summer, Zuckerberg specifically created a new class of Facebook shares that would allow him to serve in elected office for two years without resigning from Facebook.
