FINALLY, Someone Calls Out GM And Its Perpetual Incompetence — IT'S ABOUT TIME

"The president's comments about the UAW are disgraceful", said Brown, a Cleveland Democrat. Trump said Barra blamed sluggish action on the UAW union.

A view of the entrance to the West Plant at the General Motors Lordstown Complex, assembly plant in Warren, Ohio, on November 26, 2018. "With his mouth, I think he will get something done".

"They've changed the whole model of General Motors", Trump said.

He pointed to the craft store Pat Catans and Sears as two other companies that fell on hard times. "GM is just one of them".

This is the third time Trump has taken to Twitter over the weekend to express his frustration with GM's decision to shut several factories in the U.S. and Canada that employ some 15,000 workers.

In fact, he had a call from the White House Office of Governmental Affairs today. "I am not going to beat up GM because they've been here for 53 years, they've been good neighbors".

Trump has skewered several other USA companies for not doing more to help their country's economy, but his remarks so far have been more bark than bite.

"Oh, I'm aware", Hill said he responded.

Later Sunday afternoon, Trump again tweeted about GM, this time announcing he spoke, via phone, with Barra about the automaker's decision concerning Lordstown.

"The Drive It Home Ohio campaign remains a positive and optimistic grassroots effort", Dignan, Drive It Home Ohio campaign co-chair and Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber president and CEO, said in a statement.

GM announced the restructuring bid as it shifts its focus to SUVs, trucks and electric vehicles.

President Donald Trump ramped up pressure over the weekend on General Motors and United Auto Workers to try and save a vehicle plant that recently closed and cost almost 2,000 jobs in Ohio. As far as talks go, that is up to our International UAW and General Motors. We want to work. We will still push for a new product and remain optimistic. "We are True Blue and you can count on us". Donald Trump replied, probably unaware that GM's and UAW's current contract expires in September.

"Why wait, start [the talks] now!"

On Saturday, Trump has tweeted that GM "must" reopen the plant, "maybe in a different form or with a new owner, FAST!"

Earlier in the day, Trump accused GM of letting the United States down and claimed that "other much better auto companies" are coming to the United States "in droves". We now have the best Economy in the World, the envy of all.

That may be one reason why Mr. Trump joined a coalition of OH lawmakers in efforts to get the Lordstown plant running again.

"Increased import tariffs could lead to a smaller GM, a reduced presence at home and overseas for this iconic American company, and risk less-not more-U.S.jobs", the automaker warned the Trump administration in July, via a filing with the United States Department of Commerce.

His weekend salvos were received by some confusion in the Valley and beyond.

He also said UAW Local 1112 President David Green "let our country down". He also criticized GM.

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.
