WASHINGTON President Donald Trump retweeted a supporters call for General Motors to repay billions to the federal government it received as part of last decades auto industry bailout. He also warned GM the White House is studying moves he can take using his executive powers to punish the company.
The president shared with his 56 million Twitter followers a tweet by an account with the handle @The-Trump-Train that criticized GM for cutting jobs and production at facilities in Ohio, Michigan and Maryland. It also suggested the automaker return over $10 billion in federal monies it received in the late 2000s to stay afloat.
If GM doesnt want to keep their jobs in the United States, they should pay back the $11.2 billion bailout that was funded by the American taxpayer, the Trump fan account wrote with the presidents endorsement.
