    Trump threatens GM with ‘big border tax’ over Mexico production

    U.S. President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday blasted U.S. car maker General Motors and threatened to impose a “big border tax” for making its Chevy Cruze model in Mexico.

    “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 in a post on Twitter.

    It is interesting that (new) GM is investing massive amounts for plants in Mexico, although the Mexican government did nothing for the GM bailout.

    Yeah, I'd ignore his cherry picking.
    If he borrowed "No Federal contracts if you offshore" from Bernie Sanders, that's something that would get the attention of these corporations.
    Also, if it's Mexico only, all he'll do is shift production back to China. It'll be interesting to see if he has the balls to do anything about that.

    Consider this a message to all CEOs. It's not just about GM.
    Pony Car: an affordable, compact, highly styled car with a sporty or performance-oriented image and an available V8.

    Ford basically ignored him when he cherry picked them. Said there's no net job loss and went on with their business.
    GM should do the same. If he ever comes up with some sort of actual policy, then you address it.

    GM has responded to Mr. Trump:

    "General Motors manufacturers 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."

    Yes this is well known, and should have been known to you when you claimed the Cruze (not just the sedan) is "imported" from Ohio.
