President-elect Donald Trump warned General Motors for making its Chevy Cruze models in Mexico and shipping them back to the US for sale.

The tweet made headlines today as GM is the latest company targeted by the President-elect.

CNBC reported:

President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday attacked General Motors in a tweet, claiming the auto giant is making a Chevy Cruze model in Mexico and then sending them to U.S. dealers tax free.

“General Motors is sending Mexican made model of Chevy Cruze to U.S. car dealers-tax free across border. Make in U.S.A.or pay big border tax!” Trump said on Twitter.

GM later responded to Trump’s tweet, saying it makes most of its Chevy Cruze models in the United States and sells only a “small number” of one model made in Mexico in the U.S.

“General Motors manufactures the Chevrolet Cruze sedan in Lordstown, Ohio. All Chevrolet Cruze sedans sold in the U.S. are built in GM’s assembly plant in Lordstown, Ohio. GM builds the Chevrolet Cruze hatchback for global markets in Mexico, with a small number sold in the U.S,” the company said in a statement.
