Have absolutely no idea what you're going on about. Care to post a link so we're all informed?

GM basically would not build ventilators at a closed plant in Ohio unless they could rape us. Even then, allowing that, we had to invoke a wartime law to force them into it.

Was on the Coronavirus briefing tonight

They did. Workhorse that was at one time a GM subsidiary that is now a private company, bought it.

Nothing to see here!
Nice to see an informed THT'er.

I don’t know those details on the plant, and you may be 100% correct, but they are manufacturing them now. Not once was not owning the plant mentioned today. Maybe a different plant?

For a company to get slammed like that by Trump, especially after he said how great they were, they must have done something to piss him off. He hates having an about face so for him to go from saying GM has been doing what I asked and are great patriots, to him saying GM reversed course and tried to change pricing and quantities, I would say GM are idiots. Its not hard to see how to deal with Trump so if they cannot figure it out then GM is in trouble.

Have no idea. You posted it, didn't you check before going off?

GM has been run by idiots for years. Idiots called for and supported their bailout, and idiots will continue to take up for them now.

I’ve made a fool of myself before, maybe twice. But don’t laugh at me yet, the story will come out. As for my Tahoe, at this time I’m pissed enough at GM to get rid of it.... Time will tell.
Really like the Palisades and Telluride....
