GM to keep 'strong manufacturing presence' in US

General Motors Company said on Tuesday it wants to maintain a "strong manufacturing presence" in the United States despite announcing it will cut production in the country in 2019.

"Many of the US workers impacted by these actions will have the opportunity to shift to other GM plants where we will need more employees to support growth in trucks, crossovers and SUVs," the carmaker said in response to US President Donald Trump's criticism of the company. GM added that it also plans to create new technical and engineering jobs in the US in areas of electrification and autonomous vehicles.

Earlier, Trump said he was "very disappointed" with GM's decision to shut plants in Ohio, Michigan and Maryland and threatened to cut all subsidies for the company, including those for electric cars.
