Trump Said GM Lordstown Closing “Doesn’t Really Matter,” Now He’s Trying to Kill a Loan Program That Could Save Lordstown Jobs

COLUMBUS — After workers at the General Motors plant in Lordstown pleaded with Donald Trump to help save their jobs, he ignored their pleas.

Then he said GM Lordstown’s closing “doesn’t really matter.”

Then he attacked Lordstown workers and their leaders.

Now he’s trying to kill a loan program that could save at least some of the jobs that were lost when the plant closed.

“Donald Trump thinks that closing GM Lordstown ‘doesn’t really matter,’ and he has certainly acted that way, as he’s been to Ohio six times in the past year and has never once come to Lordstown to look the workers and community members in the eye,” said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. “Today’s stunning news is just one more example of how little he actually cares about the workers he made so many false promises to. Donald Trump needs to get off Twitter, stop golfing every weekend and get to work helping Ohio workers, rather than screwing them over at every turn.”

Last year was the worst year for Ohio’s job growth since 2009, and the Buckeye State lost 1,700 manufacturing jobs and 9,000 construction jobs between December 2018 and December 2019, according to data released last month by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
