The president expressed his "disappointment" with the company and warned that the "bet" for China and Mexico "would not give results."
US President Donald Trump responded strongly today to the announcement that the biggest automaker, General Motors, intends to close at least four factories in the country, during uncertainty about the world's largest economy taxes set by the White House.
"Disappointed with GM and CEO, Mary Barra, for closing plants in Ohio, Michigan and Maryland," said the head of state on Twitter. "They have not closed anything in Mexico and China."
"The United States General Motors rescued and this is the way to thank," said Trump, referring to the financial rescue that the United States guaranteed ten years ago to GM and Ford in the middle of the crisis.
The president also stated that his administration evaluated "subtracting all subsidies to GM, including electric cars."
He added that the company "made a great bet for China when they built plants there (and in Mexico), do not believe that this bet will work for them, I am here to protect US employees."
General Motors' decision, which was communicated yesterday, jumped the actions of the signature and will be framed in a cost reduction and relocation campaign and the company to face the challenges of electric and autonomous mobility.
