Trump angrily referred to the 2008 federal auto bailout by adding that "the USA saved General Motors, and this is the THANKS we get!"
"This callous decision by GM to reduce or cease operations in American plants, while opening or increasing production in Mexico and China plants for sales to American consumers, is, in its implementation, profoundly damaging to our American workforce", said UAW vice president Terry Dittes.
Wall Street was clearly tuned in to Trump's response. GM stock declined by over three percent after Mr. Trump's tweet was posted.
When asked whether there's any consideration of taking steps to help the 14,000 workers being laid off, akin to the subsidies for farmers hurt by Chinese tariffs, Kudlow said GM CEO Mary Barra had told him there is talk of shifting at least some of the workers to other plants in Texas or MI.

"The actions we are taking today continue our transformation to be highly agile, resilient and profitable, while giving us the flexibility to invest in the future", she said. GM said the cuts will boost automotive free cash flow by $6 billion by the end of 2020 and result in one-time charges of up to $3.8 billion in the fourth quarter of this year and first quarter of 2019. The reduction includes 8,100 white-collar workers, some of whom will take buyouts and others who will be laid off.
While GM, and other auto companies, have spoken out against rising production costs caused by the Trump administration's protectionist tariffs, a spokeswoman for the company told TheBlaze that the layoffs and plant closures "are being made as part of our ongoing transformation and are not related to recent trade or tariff decisions".
