Trump Convinces GM to Invest and Create Jobs in the U.S.

Last week, President-elect Donald Trump applied pressure to General Motors to shift production and investment from Mexico to the United States.

The result of the conversation was revealed Tuesday when the car manufacturing giant announced it will be investing an additional $1 billion in several plants located in the U.S.

In total, GM will be bringing back about 7,000 jobs to the U.S. market from overseas. Many of these new positions will be centered around information technology and manufacturing.

A notable example of GM’s investment into the U.S. includes the production of the next generation of full-size pickup trucks. Originally scheduled for production in Mexico, the company will now make the trucks in Michigan.  The move is expected to help create nearly 500 new jobs.

Following GM’s announcement, Trump boasted about his influence in influencing the company’s decision to invest in America. “With all of the jobs I am bringing back into the U.S. (even before taking office), with all of the new auto plants coming back into our….country and with the massive cost reductions I have negotiated on military purchases and more, I believe the people are seeing ‘big stuff.'”
