Chrysler VP Has Feisty Rebuttal for Trump Tweet

by Dave Burdick

November 4, 2012

I hesitate to point to Donald Trump, but the thing I'm pointing to is really an unusually candid moment from an executive taking exception to one of Trump's many weird, political tweets: The vice president of product design at Chrysler told him he's "full of shit!"

The tweet, in response to a Trump tweet saying Chrysler would move Jeep production to China, was pretty quickly applauded by people who like both honesty and swear words. 

Chrysler also responded to the claim, which came earlier from a Romney speech:

On Tuesday, Chrysler Group LLC Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne, in an e-mail to employees, also flatly denied Romney's claim.

"I feel obliged to unambiguously restate our position: Jeep production will not be moved from the United States to China," Marchionne wrote.

Romney, speaking a week ago to a crowd in Defiance, Ohio, said that he had read a news article that said Chrysler's Jeep brand is considering moving "all production to China."
