Donald Trump Scolds General Motors for Moving Plants to China After Bailout

President Donald Trump scolded General Motors on Friday for shifting car production to China, despite getting a taxpayer bailout.

“They moved major plants to China, BEFORE I CAME INTO OFFICE,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “This was done despite the saving help given them by the USA. Now they should start moving back to America again?”

Taxpayers funded a $50 billion package that bailed out General Motors after the company went bankrupt in 2009, as the federal government ultimately lost $11.2 billion in the process.

Trump described General Motors as “once the Giant of Detroit” but mocked it as “one of the smallest auto manufacturers.”

Despite their history in Detroit, General Motors now employs fewer union American workers in the city than any of their domestic rivals. – READ MORE
