CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - President Donald Trump continues to urge the leaders of General Motors, as he took to Twitter Monday morning calling for the reopening of the company’s Lordstown production facility.

The president tweeted, “Close a plant in China or Mexico,” and asked for the automotive manufacturer to bring jobs back to Ohio and the United States.

Over the weekend, President Trump said GM officials and the United Auto Workers group should negotiate immediately so that the plant could reopen.

The last car rolled off the assembly line at the Lordstown plant on March 6.

President Trump is expected to visit Ohio this week to tour a tank production facility in Lima and appear at a campaign fundraising event in Canton.
