Notice that Trump’s response to the news that GM is closing plants and laying off nearly 15,000 workers at all levels is as if it’s an attack on him?
Before leaving the White House Monday for a campaign rally in Mississippi, the president told reporters he had complained to GM chief executive Mary Barra about the shutdowns.
“I was very tough,” the president said. “I spoke with her when I heard they were closing. And I said: ‘You know, this country has done a lot for General Motors. You better get back in there soon. That’s Ohio, and you better get back in there soon.’ ”
Because Ohio has all those electoral votes and GM is doing this just to mess with his reelection.
It’s not like he cares about the people losing their jobs or cities like Lordstown being stuck with an empty plant and turned into another Flint; it’s all about him. That’s all that matters.
