    I just read that some electric car company will be using the building and employ 4,000-5,000 workers in Lordstown.

    Because Trump's tweets are a paragon of truthfulness? No, I'll believe it when GM announces it, or it simply happens.
    They really, really don't like to get rid of plants. They much prefer to shutter them because they know their product cycles. In 5-10 years cars will be the big seller and SUV/trucks will fall to the wayside.

    This article was from USA Today. They gave some corroborating facts to this deal.

    May be. I'm just not going to believe it until I see it.
    Even if everything is true, GM likes to change their mind at the drop of a hat.

    And I hope it is, it would be better for the area than letting the plant go to rot.

    I read an article a few weeks ago. An electric car manufacturer was looking to buy that factory. GM was going to sell.

    The union made a remark about the new company had to hire the laid off union personnel. According to contract with GM.

    Electric car manufacturer decided not to buy.

    Who cares ??? If his tweets create some buzz and the buzz creates some action then action is better then inaction. All business people are lies just as all artists are lies , they have ideas to create something and until that something is actually created it's all just lies.
