Chrysler responds to billionaire Donald Trump accusations towards President Barack Obama and the automaker.
“Obama is a terrible negotiator. He bails out Chrysler and now Chrysler wants to send all Jeep manufacturing to China–and will!” tweeted Donald Trump.
The answer came shortly from Chrysler Group Vice President for Product Design Ralph Gilles: “you are full of (expletive)!” Gilles is a talented and respected executive who could have left the company when it was struggling with bankruptcy but chose to stay. He joined the automaker in 1992 as a designer and in 2008 he was named vice president.
The exchange of tough words was sparkled by Romney’s announcement made in Ohio that Chrysler plans to transfer all Jeep production to China. Although the company quickly denied the claim and called it inaccurate, it was enough to fuel republicans hate towards President Obama. Romney also released an electoral ad accusing GM of its growth in China and slamming Obama for Chrysler’s plans.
“No amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish our record of creating jobs in the U.S. and repatriating profits back to this country,” said GM spokesman Greg Martin. “We’ve clearly entered some parallel universe during these last few days.”
