General Motors Co.’s closed Lordstown, Ohio, assembly plant—which became a flashpoint for President Trump and unionized workers angry over the company’s factory closures—has a new owner.

The auto maker has sold the factory to a new electric-truck maker, Lordstown Motors Corp., for an undisclosed amount, the startup company said Thursday.
