Trump on GM strike: Nobody is better to auto workers than me


THAT. I THINK WE HAVE A WAYS TO GO YET. REPORTER: DO YOU STAND WITH THE AUTO WORKERS IN THE GM STRIKE?>>I HAVE A GREAT RELATIONSHIP WITH THE AUTO WORKERS. I GOT TREMENDOUS VOTES FROM THE AUTO WORKERS. I DON’T WANT GENERAL MOTORS BUILDING PLANTS OUTSIDE OF THIS COUNTRY. THEY BUILT MANY PLANTS IN CHINA AND MEXICO. I DON’T LIKE THAT AT ALL. MY RELATIONSHIP HAS BEEN VERY POWERFUL WITH THE AUTO WORKERS. NOT NECESSARILY THE TOP PERSON OR TWO, BUT THE PEOPLE THAT WORK, DOING AUTOMOBILES, NOBODY HAS EVER BROUGHT MORE COMPANIES INTO THE UNITED STATES. YOU KNOW I HAVE JAPAN AND GERMANY AND MANY COUNTRIES HAVE BEEN BRINGING CAR COMPANIES IN, OPENING PLANTS, EXPANDING PLANTS AND BIG THINGS ARE HAPPENING IN OHIO, INCLUDING LORDSTOWN, MOVE POSITIVE THINGS ARE HAPPENING. WE HAVE MANY PLANTS THAT ARE BEING RENOVATED EXPANDED OR BUILT NEW RIGHT NOW IN THE UNITED STATES, MANY MORE THAN WE’VE HAD FOR DECADES, DECADES. NOBODY HAS BEEN BETTER TO THE AUTO WORKERS THAN ME. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT TO WORK OUT BUT I DON’T WANT GENERAL MOTORS BUILDING PLANTS IN CHINA AND MEXICO. THIS IS BEFORE MY WATCH. I DON’T THINK THEY WILL BE DOING THAT. I THINK I HAD MEETINGS WITH MARY BARRA, HEAD OF GM. AND I DON’T WANT THEM LEAVING OUR COUNTRY. I DON’T WANT THEM BUILDING IN CHINA. I DON’T WANT TO BUILD THEM IN OTHER COUNTRIES. I DON’T WANT THESE BIG, MASSIVE AUTO PLANTS BUILT IN OTHER COUNTRIES AND I DON’T THINK THEY WILL BE DOING THAT ANYMORE. GENERAL MOTORS MAKES MOST OF ITS MONEY IN THE UNITED STATES AND TOO BAD THEY SPENT BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES BEFORE I GOT HERE. ONE OF THE THINGS VERY IMPORTANT IN THE USMCA WHICH WE HAVE TO HAVE APPROVED FOR, NOT ONLY FOR THE UNIONS BUT FOR THE AUTO WORKERS BUT FOR THE FARMERS AND FOR THE MANUFACTURERS, EVERYBODY, EVERYBODY WANTS USMCA. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT EVEN MORE SO NOW THAN IT WAS TWO WEEKS AGO
