President-elect Donald Trump took aim at General Motors today on Twitter. While Ford was previously Trump's main and sometimes undeserving target when it came to Mexican manufacturing, Trump's focus is now on the Chevy Cruze. His tweet threatens GM with a tax on imported Cruze models from Mexico.

Not all Cruzes are built in Mexico, though. GM put out a three-sentence press release in response to the tweet explaining where its Cruze models are built. While the Cruze hatchback is built in Mexico for both US and global markets, every single sedan sold in the US is built in Lordstown, Ohio.


Trump didn't specify how large his hypothetical tax would be in his tweet. In the past, when criticizing Ford for Mexican production, he had proposed a 35-percent tariff.
