The USTR statement follows a pair of tweets from Donald Trump in response to General Motors' decision to close several plants and layoff thousands of workers, in which Trump implied a higher tariff on cars imported to the us could have prevented GM from closing factories. Sherrod Brown hold at least one common goal: getting General Motors (GM) to abandon its plan to lay off workers at an OH plant. Aides said the idea was still being explored, but attention focused on the $7,500 federal tax credit extended to buyers of electric vehicles including the Chevrolet Bolt.
The United Auto Workers union said it would challenge the move through "every legal, contractual and collective bargaining avenue open to our membership", and politicians on both sides of the aisle also slammed the layoffs.
Trump has expressed disappointment with GM and its chief executive officer, Mary Barra, for the decision to close the plants.
"That's OH, and you better get back in there soon", he said. The earlier rally was linked to Chief Executive Officer Mary Barra's plan to bolster cash flow by canceling production at five plants in the USA and Canada and jettisoning slow-selling sedans from the lineup.
His tweet continued: "Big Steel is opening and renovating plants all over the country".
Auto companies employ far fewer workers than they did in 2000.

On multiple occasions during the two-and-a-half hour hearing, Allan was unable to provide answers to questions posed by lawmakers. His fellow Lib Dem, former deputy prime minister Nick Clegg, joined Facebook as head of global affairs last month.
Trump told Congress to "get smart" and added: "The president has great power on this issue - because of the GM event, it is being studied now!"
But those expansions aren't enough to accommodate all the roughly 3,300 US factory workers who could lose their jobs.
Then on Tuesday, Trump upped the stakes-and knocked 2.6% off GM's stock price-by tweeting that his administration was "looking at cutting all GM subsidies, including for electric cars". In 2009, for instance, GM announced that it meant to close a huge assembly plant in Orion Township, Michigan, north of Detroit. Regardless of whether suppliers and OEMs continue to import steel from overseas or buy it domestically, they are paying more for steel to build their auto bodies. He argued that would make USA -made vehicles of the same class more competitive and create jobs at home.
Through October, the US imported more than 13 percent less steel compared with a year ago, while Europe has imported more than 10 percent for a record high, according to the Wall Street Journal, citing the European Steel Association. A total of 6,500 factory jobs will be cut as well.
A news release from the party is critical of President Trump, saying his administration's policies undermined sales of cars like the Lordstown-made Chevy Cruze. The bill is reactionary in a way that will do nothing to sway GM, Wyndham said.
