In a terse and non-deferential response to president-elect Trump’s tweet, GM has responded with a statement which can be summarized in two words: “you’re wrong.”
Following Trump’s tweet…
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!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 3, 2017
… GM responded with its version of the facts, according to which all Cruze sedans are built in the US, while the Mexican-produced Chevy Cruze hatchback is built for global markets, “with a small number sold in the US”
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.
Now we await Trump’s counter response.
