US President Donald Trump said in an interview with CNN that he had been dissatisfied with the decision of General Motors to close five of its plants in North America, reducing about 10 thousand employees. The president, one of whose priorities is the revival of industrial production in the country, reminded the head of General Motors, Mary Barra, that in 2008 the company received state aid. According to Donald Trump, the automaker is obliged to reopen these plants in order to start producing new car models. Earlier it was reported about the plans of General Motors to close 4 plants in the US and 1 in Canada, which produced less popular models of cars. According to the new strategy of the company, it intended to increase investment in the development of electric vehicles and self-driving cars 2 times.
