Bloomberg's mistake, here, in this instance, is not understanding, that Trump IS A MARKET FORCE.

Don't worry. KCMO has plenty of bartender, donut makers, and latte foamer jobs for everyone to prosper and live in all the luxury homes and apartments being built.

With a greater segment of the car market Buying Pre-owned cars. And if you buy a High Quality car you can put over three hundred thousand miles on it. Many Manufacturers will have problems. I live

In Past I have owned few General Motors sports cars and they were fun to Drive. That is when cars were cars and Grovin,was Grovin ,

GM would rather build cars in China where they can pay 25 cents an hour to build cars. They are not closing any plants there.

Similar to the liberals "outrage" over Saudis killing one of their own.

See how "outraged" they are when they get their way, and we sever ties with Saudis, resulting in thousands of lost jobs due to canceled contracts.

Then watch the SJWs scream and rage it's Trump's fault.

When Obama is out there trying to take credit for the good economy, I bet he won't be mentioning his involvement with this.

Life is too short to drive a SUV and keep an auto industry going too.

GM is losing, they haven’t produced quality vehicles since the 80’s, all their parts come from China and they’re junk, it’s their own fault, Barry should have let them fail when he had the chance, but instead he chose to give them bailout after bailout, they suck and yet our president is trying hard to get them right, but alas, GM doesn’t care

2:33 union workers only assemble the crap that GM gives them, blame GM

You also need to remember this one very important number, 10%, let that sink in, I mean it, absorb the fact that union wages only account for 10% of the cost of a new vehicle, the question you should be asking yourself is where is the other 90% going?

Another day, another few hundred lies and broken promises.

Jobs are coming back. Jobs only I can bring back. Auto jobs have come back. Good paying jobs. Don't sell your houses in Michigan and Ohio. I will fix it. It's all coming back. Plants will be opening up all over. It's roaring back.

He lied?
