President Donald Trump says his administration and lawmakers are exerting “a lot of pressure” on General Motors in response to its decision to cut up to 14,000 workers in North America and possibly shutter up to five plants.
Trump says he’s being very tough on GM chief executive officer Mary Barra. He says he told the company that the U.S. has done a lot for GM and that if its cars aren’t selling, the company needs to produce ones that will.
The plant in Lordstown, Ohio, that makes the Chevrolet Cruze compact car is on the possible closure list. Trump says GM needs to “get a car that is selling well and put it back” into the Ohio plant.
Arnold had challenged President Trump to a fight after the president praised Rep. Greg Gianforte, R-Mont., last month for body-slamming a reporter during the 2017 special election campaign in Montana. “I say put up or shut up @realDonaldTrump Me vs You. For America. First body slam wins. Any Rally. Any Time. Between now & the midterms,” Arnold wrote Oct. 19.
In a subsequent tweet, that has since been deleted, Arnold invoked comedian Kathy Griffin’s controversial photo shoot in which she held a fake severed head that resembled Trump. “Next time Kathy won’t be holding his fake head!” the deleted tweet said.
Days later, on Oct. 25, two Secret Service agents visited Arnold at his home to question him about the tweets.
