Same tweet, new target: Trump goes against Toyota

Staff Writer | January 5, 2017
President-elect Donald Trump is directing his tweets at Toyota Motor for its decision to ramp up production in Mexico.

Auto industry   NO WAY!
"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. The company said the facility would be located in the state of Guanajuato, not Baja.

Trump's tweet comes just one hour after a Wall Street Journal story quoted Toyota's president, Akio Toyoda, as saying he hopes to have a good relationship with Trump.
