Donald Trump Falsely Claimed That GM is Making Chevy Cruz in Mexico

Type: Misleading StatementsJan 11 2017 Severity:

Donald Trump tweeted his disapproval with General Motors for making the Chevy Cruz in Mexico and threatened to make them pay "a big border tax" if they didn't begin building them in the United States. The problem with Trump's tweet is that GM already makes the automobile at a plant in Ohio. GM does have a plant in Mexico, but that plant exports the vast majority of its vehicles to other international markets outside of the United States.
