In a recent Associated Press report, an employee for the plant – Bobbi Marsh – expressed immense disappointment in the president who promised jobs for Ohio.
“I can’t believe our president would allow this to happen. It’s like we’re in a limbo now.”
But though many blame Trump’s performance as president for the closure, some still think the newly-unemployed Trump voters of 2016 will be just as devoted in 2020.
You just know that those people are still going to vote for him though. There must be something in the water they hand out at Trump rallies.
I wish it was E.coli.

And in 2020 he’ll tell them that Dems want to stop their unemployment payments and only he can protect them.

The retaliation to Trump’s wide-ranging tariffs on China initially led many to predict as many as 715,000 auto industry jobs lost and a 2 million vehicle drop in sales. General Motors’s announcement of the closure in Lordstown as well as multiple other plants seems to vindicate the predictions of months ago.
Only time will tell if Trump voters plan to stick with the President – failed promises and all – or if they’ll finally believe his critics: that he’s a conman who played on their American dreams.
