Trump addresses local union boss, Lordstown GM closure

President Trump: ‘General Motors Must Get Their Lordstown Plant Open’

Donald Trump fumes, 'disappointed' about shuttered GM Ohio plant

"As President Green said, President Trump should support my American Cars, American Jobs Act to keep auto jobs in OH, and GM CEO Mary Barra owes the workers from this highly productive plant an explanation for her comments", said Brown.

General Motors' statement came after President Donald Trump announced that he has spoken to General Motors CEO Mary Barra to vent his frustration about the automaker's closure of an OH manufacturing plant while the USA economy continues to fare well.

In a tweet, Trump said "Because the economy is so good, General Motors must get their Lordstown, Ohio, plant open, maybe in a different form or with a new owner, FAST!"

Dolphins Quarterback Ryan Tannehill Traded to Tennessee Titans
The Dolphins finished last season 7-9, and finding a reliable starting quarterback could help them surpass that mark. He posted a 42-46 record over six seasons, while throwing for 20,434 yards and 123 touchdowns with 75 interceptions.

General Motors says in a statement released Sunday evening that the future of plants scheduled to be closed 'will be resolved between GM and the UAW'.

Trump's arm-twisting came in a series of tweets aimed at GM and the United Auto Workers union that stretched across Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Trump said Barra blamed sluggish action on the UAW union. General Motors have two models - Chevrolet Bolt and Chevrolet Volt - that qualify for a tax credit. It's unclear if the Trump administration responded to Green's request. "Stop complaining and get the job done!", Trump fumed in the tweet on Sunday. "Why wait, start them now!", he tweeted. The automaker also said that it has "opportunities available for virtually all impacted employees" at plants that are to be shuttered.

Trump praised Toyota for its investments in the U.S.in an apparent attempt to depict GM as being less committed to its home country than the Japan automaker. As Mary Barra has said, GM plans to discuss our fate with the UAW in the fall and we are focused on getting a new product in Lordstown. Vehicle companies are all coming back to the U.S. So is everyone else.

Most of the countries have grounded the planes, including the US, China , India, Brazil and many countries of the European Union. But despite the global grounding of the Boeing Max 8's , Southwest pilots stand by the safety of the aircraft.

While Trump has previously criticized GM, Sunday appeared to be the first time that he targeted Green, a local union official, by name. It is one of several North American plants that the automaker announced it would shutter by early next year as part of a restructuring effort.
