Trump Threatens GM Motors For Sending Jobs to Mexico, GM Fires Back

President-elect Donald Trump is prepared to hurt GM Motors economically for moving production of its Chevy Cruze model to Mexico. If they follow through with the move, Trump said they can expect a major tax.

MSNBC anchors on "Morning Joe" defended GM's move to Mexico on Tuesday, arguing that it will use cheaper labor. The analysts also insisted that an "unhinged" tweeting Trump will only disrupt market forces.

Trump criticized Ford for a similar move back in September. The car company announced it was going to produce most of its smaller vehicles in Mexico. 

GM responded with its own statement, telling the president-elect that the car in question is actually built in Ohio.
