Does not bother me. It's a world economy.
What bothers me are those that refuse to buy any car without an American
nameplate, i.e. GM, Chrysler or Ford. Last US car I bought was a Ford,
made in Mexico and it was crap and I had to sue Ford and the dealer for
repairs that should have been done under warranty.
I have to wonder about the clip maker's agenda.
They say something to the effect of "70% of vehicles manufactured by GM
since the 2008 bailout have been manufactured outside of the USA." - as
if that had some special significance in the context of GM being a
global corporation with global sales.
If the vid had cited the percent of vehicles sold within the USA yet
manufactured outside of the USA, it might have passed the sniff test...
but it did not and made it sound to me like somebody had an agenda.
What about GM vehicles made in Canada - but sold in the USA, Canada,
and/or other countries?

As of Apr. 24, 2009, GM Canada has received a combined loan commitment
of C$3 billion from the Canadian and Ontario governments to help it deal
with major financial problems amid falling sales.
On 27 April 2009, GM Canada announced that it would cut over half of its
Canadian jobs and close 40% of its Canadian dealerships by 2014 in
response to its indirect parent company's dire financial straits as the
Canadian taxpayers gave them 10.6 billion. The Canadian Government owns
12% of General Motors Corporation stock today.
