Trump’s General Motors tweets, explained
’s decision making has little to do with Trump or government policy in general — though the steel tariffs aren’t helping — but Trump is well aware that this plant closure isn’t a great look for him. As Heather Long at the Post notes, Trumbull County, where Lordstown is, voted for a Democrat in every election since the 1970s — until Trump in 2016.

Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin were what pushed Trump over the top in 2016 and will likely be very important for his reelection bid as well. There was a mini recession in parts of the economy leading up to the 2016 election that resulted in reduced investment in manufacturing in the Upper Midwest and localized economic pain that could have bolstered support for Trump there. If things get worse, not better, under his watch, that could harm his reelection prospects.

Trump is well aware of the optics, though it’s not particularly clear he is hyper-concerned about the loss of the jobs themselves. As mentioned, Green has twice written to Trump about the state of affairs in Lordstown and hasn’t received a response. Instead, the president is complaining about it on Twitter.

It’s not dissimilar from what he’s done with Harley-Davidson, which after the Republican tax cut bill was passed announced a nearly $700 million stock buyback plan and plans to close a plant in Kansas City. The president of the International Association of Machinists, like Green, sent a letter to Trump asking for help and, also like Green, received no answer. Trump publicly bashed Harley when it subsequently announced it would shift some production overseas.

A mystery pooper is tormenting Broadway
Non-union hopefuls often complain that Actors’ Equity mistreats them. But Broadway actors are upset that some shows, including “Sponge Bob Square Pants,” go on tour with non-union performers, who earn about four times less than Equity members.

MyEquifax.com Bypasses Credit Freeze PIN
Most people who have frozen their credit files with Equifax have been issued a numeric Personal Identification Number (PIN) which is supposed to be required before a freeze can be lifted or thawed. Unfortunately, if you don’t already have an account at the credit bureau’s new myEquifax portal, it may be simple for identity thieves to lift an existing credit freeze at Equifax and bypass the PIN armed with little more than your, name, Social Security number and birthday.

France Gets a Taste of Post-Brexit Mayhem
For Adam Kirkwood, a weekend getaway in Paris that included museum visits and strolls along the Seine had gone pretty smoothly.

Until it was time to go back to London.

On Monday, he got a flavor of France’s protest culture combined with a taste of Brexit when his Eurostar train was delayed for two hours at Gare du Nord. The wait was caused by a French customs officers’ protest against what they see as France’s lack of preparation ahead of Britain’s exit from the European Union.

“I am not sure that we, in Britain, are as worried as the French customs officers about Brexit,” Mr. Kirkwood, 68, said. “Maybe we should stop drinking tea and start thinking about what comes next.”

As Britain prepares for another crucial vote on Tuesday about the withdrawal, customs workers on the other side of the Channel have been showing what might happen. Without extra funding and staffing ahead of the March 29 deadline, they say, the ports, train stations and tunnel linking Britain and France will face serious mayhem.

The slowdown by the customs officers has gone on for a week, with dozens of trucks backed up for miles outside the Channel tunnel’s entrance in northern France and near the French ports of Calais and Dunkirk. And hundreds of passengers like Mr. Kirkwood have been stranded in Paris, waiting to board delayed or canceled Eurostar trains.

The French government says it is ready for Brexit. It has announced that 700 additional customs officers will be hired by 2020, with about 260 of them stationed in northern France and starting before March 29. In addition, 10 agents will be added to the 120 already at the Gare du Nord.
