There are 2 comments on the The Washington Monthly story from Sunday Dec 2, titled The Lesson GM's Plant Closures Has for Democrats. In it, The Washington Monthly reports that:

On Monday, General Motors announced plans to cut 14,800 jobs in Canada and the U.S. and cease production at four plants in Maryland, Michigan, and Ohio, including one in Lordstown, Ohio, that employs 1,600 people in a town of just 3,300. The reaction from President Donald Trump was predictable.

This article is useless. He seems to be inferring that The Asian companies are selling significant amounts of sedans, and if GM could only produce sedans comparable in quality and fuel efficiency , people would buy them. That’s all a lie. Asian sales figures in the US indicates their sedan sales are tanking too.
Trump is a joke

“China is GM’s largest market, and it sold a third more cars there than in the U.S. last year. Beijing has set electric-car quotas, and to be competitive GM has little choice but to make cars in China. All the more so after Beijing raised tariffs on U.S.-made cars to 40% from 15% in retaliation for Mr. Trump’s tariffs.”

Don't worry America. Dumb Donald Trump's billionaire golf buddies will open new plants in the red states where meth-heads making five bucks an hour will haywire old Chevys with recycled hot water heater tanks to burn "clean beautiful coal" .....while China perfects electric vehicles. How can you lose?

Ha Ha!
