BMW Investing Heavily in Electric Vehicles, CEO Krueger Says

President Donald Trump congratulated BMW AG for building a “major new plant” in the U.S., taking a swipe at General Motor Co.’s move to close several factories. The only problem is that the German carmaker’s decision hasn’t been finalized.

“Big Steel is opening and renovating plants all over the country,” Trump posted Thursday on Twitter. “Auto companies are pouring into the U.S., including BMW, which just announced a major new plant.”
