On Monday, General Motors announced plans regarding the future of the company which includes letting go of at least 15% of its workers. The move has been harshly criticized by US President Donald Trump, who has threatened to cut all subsidies given to the company.

Steven Mnuchin, the US treasury secretary, argued that someone had gained access to his Twitter account and retweeted a critical post in which General Motors was lambasted for its recent corporate policy decisions.  The retweet was later deleted, as it had allegedly been made without the consent of the treasury secretary.
