President-elect Donald Trump is directing his Twitter ire at Toyota for its decision to ramp up production in Mexico.
“Toyota Motor said will build a new plant in Baja, Mexico, to build Corolla cars for U.S. NO WAY! Build plant in U.S. or pay big border tax,” Trump tweeted Thursday afternoon.
The Japanese company announced
in 2015 that it would be building a new plant in Mexico for its Corolla sedan, although the automaker said at the time the facility would be located in the state of Guanajuato, not Baja.
in September that it would increase production of pickup trucks at its plant in Mexico's Baja California state.
