The US President demanded that the automotive giant General Motors (GM) back in Ohio, where the company closes the production.

Previously GM announced it would close five plants in North America, including the United States and Canada, and cut about 14 thousand workers to cut costs.

«Our country has done a lot for General Motors. Would be better if they returned to Ohio and soon. We provide them a lot of pressure,» said trump told reporters.

According to him, GM cites poor sales of individual models. «I tell them — then get a machine that sold well, and return it (in trade),» added trump.

The revival of production, including automotive, was one of the campaign promises trump.
