U.S. President Donald Trump prompted General Motors to restart Ohio plant in a tweet on Saturday, ten days after the plant made its final Chevrolet Cruze.
The last Cruze rolled off the assembly line this month at the automaker’s plant in Lordstown, Ohio, the first of five plants in North America to finish production this year and ending U.S. production of the Cruze.
In a tweet, Trump stated, “Because the economy is so good, General Motors must get their Lordstown, Ohio, plant open, maybe in a different form or with a new owner, FAST!”
Trump also said “Toyota is investing 13.5 $Billion in the U.S., others likewise. G.M. MUST ACT QUICKLY. Time is of the essence!”
Over five years Toyota plans to invest almost $13 billion.
GM did not immediately replied to requests for comment.
