“Democrat UAW Local 1112 President David Green ought to get his act together and produce. G.M. let our Country down, but other much better car companies are coming into the U.S. in droves,” Trump tweeted Sunday. “I want action on Lordstown fast. Stop complaining and get the job done! 3.8% Unemployment!”
The tweet came minutes after a segment on Fox News Channel suggested that Trump might have trouble with his reelection campaign in the Rust Belt. Fox News played clips from a Trump rally in Youngstown, Ohio, in July 2017 — very close to Lordstown — where the president told the crowd “don’t sell your house” because the jobs are “all coming back.”…
Trumbull County, where Lordstown is located, voted for Trump in 2016 after voting Democratic in every election since the 1970s.
“The president was saying don’t sell your house because all of these factories are coming back and we’re going to protect American jobs. We’ve seen everything but that here,” Green said in a recent interview.
