Here's what #45 (the best and most brilliant business man ever) proposes for GM:

"Because the economy is so good, General Motors must get their Lordstown, Ohio, plant open, maybe in a different form or with a new owner, FAST! Toyota is investing 13.5 $Billion in U.S., others likewise. G.M. MUST ACT QUICKLY. Time is of the essence!"

GM closed the Lordstown plant because it makes the Cruz and the Cruz doesn't sell well in the US. it still sells in other countries and GM will continue to keep the Mexico plant open to fill these orders.

Why does the Orange Maroon want this so very very badly? because he promised all manufacturing would see the revival of the century and jobs would flow like green beer on March 17th. The closure is a personal insult to the donald creating a personal attack from the presidential twitter account on GM by name. Do we see anything in this tirade against GM about the poor workers who now face finding new jobs and/or retraining? Do we see any solutions for the underlying difficulties that face any big business seeing sector declines in products? Not so much. The Orange Maroon is not a process oriented personality. he's a me first and only actor and the shutdown makes him look bad. He is doesn't give a shiznit about either GM or the union workers. He does care tremendously about how the loss of manufacturing jobs makes him look.

On Sunday, he tweeted that David Green, president of United Auto Workers Local 1112, should “get his act together and produce.” Green has sent two letters to Trump asking him for help in keeping the Lordstown plant open, both of which went unanswered.

So we have a business genius with a very big brain running the country now trying to run GM. Where does he find the time?
