US President Donald Trump said he wants an immediate start to talks between General Motors Co. and the United Auto Workers, extending to a third day his calls for the carmaker and union to reopen an Ohio factory, Bloomberg reported.
“Get that big, beautiful plant in Ohio open now,” Trump said on Twitter early Monday, after sending a series of missives at GM and the UAW over the weekend. “Close a plant in China or Mexico, where you invested so heavily pre-Trump, but not in the U.S.A. Bring jobs home!”
Trump said Sunday he’d asked GM Chief Executive Officer Mary Barra to sell the plant and tried to shift blame to the Democratic leader of the local union.
“I am not happy that it is closed when everything else in our Country is BOOMING,” Trump said in a tweet Sunday after he said he had just spoken to Barra about the plant. “I asked her to sell it or do something quickly.”
