More cars would be assembled in the U.S. if the same tariff were applied on imported autos, Trump said, adding in a second tweet that "GM would not be closing their plants in Ohio, Michigan & Maryland".

The German automaker said if it goes ahead with plans for a United States engine plant, it is because it needs to supply engines to its North American assembly plants.

GM shares closed down 2.6 percent at $36.69 in NY trading on Tuesday.

"The goal of Treasury's investment in GM was never to make a profit, but to help save the American auto industry, and by any measure that effort was successful", Treasury Department spokesman Adam Hodge said at the time.

I told them, 'you're playing around with the wrong person, '" he added. "Don't move. Don't sell your house".

"This is a great reminder to President Trump and his administration that tariffs add costs, which could lead to potential plant closures", he said in an interview.
