Trump addresses local union boss, Lordstown GM closure

Trump addresses local union boss, Lordstown GM closure

President Donald Trump is calling on General Motors to reopen their recently closed plant in Lordstown, Ohio.

He said he was miffed that the Lordstown plant was closed earlier this month "when everything else in our Country is BOOMING. I asked her to sell it or do something quickly", Trump wrote in the tweet sent at 6:27 p.m.

Earlier in the day, the president had already lashed out at the local UAW president, David Green, saying he "ought to get his act together and produce".

Mr. Trump tweeted over the weekend and through Monday morning about his frustration with the plant's closure, claiming that "car companies are all coming back to the U.S." and touting the USA economy as "the envy of all".

President Trump reacted via Twitter on Saturday, urging the automaker to act quickly and open the facility back up while praising the US investments made by their competitor, Toyota.

'Get that big, lovely plant in OH open now.

GM said in a statement that it and the UAW would decide what happens to the plant. "We have opportunities available for virtually all impacted employees".

The latest series of tweets recall Trump's early political success when, as a candidate, he pressured furnace maker Carrier to keep jobs in the U.S. They also come as the administration is trying to mobilize Congress to ratify the President's replacement for the North American Free Trade Agreement. The facility's closure is leading to the loss of 1,300 jobs, though about 417 of those positions will go to other plants, GM previously said. Since 2017, GM cut two of the three production shifts there, eliminating 3,000 jobs amid sagging demand for small cars. The plant had been used to produce the slow-selling Chevrolet Cruze compact vehicle.

The Lordstown plant was responsible for Chevrolet Cruze sedan production, which ended this month.

The 6.3-million-square foot Lordstown assembly complex has manufactured more than 16 million vehicles since it opened in 1966, including almost 2 million Chevrolet Cruze cars since 2010.

GM didn't immediately respond to The Associated Press' requests for comment. "Stop complaining and get the job done!", Trump fumed in the tweet on Sunday. In December, they announced a new plant opening up in China. More than 3,300 hourly workers were laid off indefinitely, representing about 7 percent of GM's hourly US employees.

In the second tweet, President Trump also claimed "much better" automakers are coming to the U.S.
