Donald Trump would have you believe that he’s a great businessman. Unfortunately, anyone with any common sense knows that he’s an abysmal failure at almost everything he does…including being a president.
Today the news was released that GM would be closing down their only automotive plant in Ohio and Donald Trump is pissed about it. CBS News caught up with him in the grounds of the White House where he repeated the exact same thing over and over and over again, saying that they better put something else in its place.

Trump also said that he told General Motors Chairman and CEO Mary Barra that GM better get back in Ohio soon and assign a new product to the Lordstown, Ohio plant. Trump had this to say:
‘I think you’re going to see something else happen there, but I’m not happy about it. I have no doubt that in a not too distant future they’ll put something else. They better put something else in.’
His statement just doesn’t make sense. First, he said that we’ll see something else be put in its place, but then he turned around and said he’s not happy about it. What this means is that GM will close the plant and nothing will be put in its place, and he knows it. He’s just trying to save face because GM won’t be bowing down to pressure from him.
What Trump didn’t discuss in this clip though was that GM is also planning to shut down three other U.S. plants and thousands more people will be left out of work. Why is it so hard for Trump to understand that this is his fault? His ridiculous tariffs are causing businesses to shut down left and right. With the Ohio GM plant shutdown and the closure of three others, there’s going to be thousands of people put out of work because of this failing president.
