Jan. 3, 2017—President-elect Donald Trump sent a tweet Tuesday morning threatening to impose a “big border tax” on General Motors 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 posted on Twitter.

GM responded by posting the following statement to its corporate website:

"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."
