Trump targets General Motors after persuading Ford on domestic production

 
U.S. President-elect Donald Trump has hit out at General Motors for manufacturing vehicles abroad without paying tariffs when selling them in the United States.
 
Using his favorite tool to deliver his message, Trump tweeted that the carmaker has been sending its Mexican-made Chevy Cruze model to U.S. car dealers.
 
He said the automaker could either pay big tariffs or make them in America.
 
In response,... General Motors said most of its Chevy Cruze models were made in the United States.
Trump previously slammed Ford about its production in Mexico.
 
The automaker's CEO Mark Fields said Tuesday that Ford will cancel its plans to build a new one-point-six billion U.S. dollar plant in Mexico and will instead... invest 700 million dollars in Michigan,... creating 700 new jobs in the U.S.
