  • Trump calls GM's CEO in push to reopen Ohio auto plant

"G.M. let our Country down, but other much better vehicle companies are coming into the droves", Trump tweeted earlier Sunday.

"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", the automaker warned the Trump administration in July, via a filing with the United States Department of Commerce.

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. Why wait, start them now!' The president tweeted Monday.

Trump began attacking General Motors CEO Mary Barra on Sunday for closing down the plant at a time when the American economy was booming.

His posts on Twitter earned a phone call from Barra over the weekend.

'I asked her to sell it or do something quickly.

The GM logo is seen at the General Motors Warren Transmission Operations Plant in Warren, Michigan October 26, 2015. In December, they announced a new plant opening up in China.

Barra and Trump initially had a good relationship as she joined him for meetings and roundtables promoting the USA auto industry.

Since the row blew up Mrs Farrow said she had been subjected to a barrage of online abuse, including threats to her family. Ms Green took her child for a sex-change operation in Thailand, which is now illegal, nine years ago when he was 16.

In a telephone interview on Sunday, Mr Green, the president of United Auto Workers Local 1112, responded, "We have produced and my act is together".

Even as Mr. Trump said he talked to Barra, he was calling on GM to reopen its Lordstown plant or find another owner, while insisting that the Detroit automaker "must act quickly". "Instead of fighting to save these jobs, President Trump made a decision to side with corporations and give companies like GM massive tax breaks to shut down American factories and ship jobs overseas".

He also blasted GM for letting down the US and asserted "much better" automakers are coming to the country.

Roughly 700 workers from the Lordstown plant have already transferred out of state. "We have now placed over 1,000 employees from our unallocated plants to other GM locations, and we have opportunities available for virtually all impacted employees".

Annual sales of the Cruze in North America peaked at 273,000 in 2014, but a year ago totaled just 142,000, as Americans are buying fewer passenger cars and instead opting to purchase bigger sport utility vehicles or pickup trucks.

Lordstown is the first of the four U.S. plants GM is closing.

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.
