    "General Motors enters 2019 as the top carmaker in Mexico.

    The distinction comes as GM plans to shutter four U.S. manufacturing facilities this year, putting thousands of jobs at risk and drawing political and labor criticism of its decision to produce so many vehicles in Mexico, particularly the new Chevrolet Blazer SUV. GM now top automaker in Mexico as it idles US factories

    Fact is it is nearly impossible to determine the percent of U.S. Automobiles made in Mexico. Why? Because Mexican exported vehicles contain many parts made in the USA and USA made vehicles contain many Mexican parts. You would have to trace the entire supply chain and that is enormously difficult, especially when most companies have multiple sources.
    As to the article I quoted from the Detroit Free Press, you have to believe that the Chevy Blazer being produced in Mexico is replacing production made in the USA. The Blazer is going to be a huge winner either way and I doubt it will be subject to any 25% tariff.

    Do you think that Trump thinks before he speaks or does he just spout off whatever comes into his head? It must be a daunting task for the people who work for him to keep up with what he says.
