Sweeping changes are coming to the No. 1 car maker in the U.S. General Motors said Monday it needs to save money, so it is cutting about 14,000 jobs — about 15 percent of its workforce — and stopping production at five facilities in North America in the next year. CBS News transportation correspondent Kris Van Cleave has the reaction from the assembly line to the Oval Office.

      Rust Belt voters need to have loved their paychecks more than they hate Latino migrants.

      Problem is, like all other US auto manufacturers, GM doesn't build a quality product. Next time you are driving, take a look at most of the cars on the road. They are foreign cars. My wife and I will no longer drive a car made by a US company. We only drive cars that are Japanese brands. Costs the same for a way better product. the Us government bailed GM out a decade ago, and all that did was buy GM some time. The downsizing of GM was inevitable. So, those blaming Trump and his China tariffs are ignoring the real reason GM is cutting production.

      This will also add to the homeless population eventually? Jobs
      are becoming harder and harder to find. The American Dream is
      a thing of the past.
