Trump criticized the largest American carmaker in the morning tweet, saying other companies "throw in the United States, including the BMW, which just released a new factory. The US is on the rise!"

Detroit's car announced plans Monday to stop production at five plants in North America, two overseas jobs and cut jobs in the most significant restructuring of the company since its bankruptcy in 2009.

GM warned this summer that the Trump administration's trade war could cut jobs in the United States. Trump was angry with GM's announcement this week, announced yesterday that he was "very disappointed" by the company and CEO Mary Bara for the drugs in Ohio, Michigan and Maryland.

"Nothing is closed in Mexico and China. The United States saved General Motors, and this is the gratitude we receive," Trump said on Tuesday. He also threatened on Tuesday to reduce all federal subsidies to the company, following on Wednesday with the announcement that the administration had studied all car tariffs imported to the United States over "Mr M.'s event".

Of the 14,000 jobs, 2,250 workers are already taking voluntary purchases, according to a company spokesman. About 5750 workers and 6,000 employees will be fired. Half an hour's workers are in Canada and the other half in the United States, where the company will work with union officials to try to move to other factories, spokesman Pat Morrison said.
