Donald Trump Jeep Tweet Just Doesn't Make Sense

TRUMP JEEP TWEET

At this point, the only thing that can trump the absurdity of Donald Trump is Donald Trump.

On Tuesday, Trump took to Twitter to continue his protracted gripe over Chrysler building factories abroad after Bloomberg reported that the car manufacturer had sealed a preliminary deal to produce some Jeeps in China.

Trump has apparently missed the point, however, given that those factories will supply the Chinese market and won't be taking jobs away from Americans.

Here's the rant:


Donald J. Trump
From Bloomberg: “Chrysler’s Jeep expects China production agreement soon.” I told you so.

Donald J. Trump
Unlike U.S., China taxes things made in the U.S. and sold in China. China demands plants, we don’t. Stupid!

Donald J. Trump
We were led to believe that Jeep would manufacture in U.S. and sell to China—like China does to us.

In the past, Trump's outrage over the matter prompted Chrysler Executive Ralph Gilles to say that Trump was "full of shit." This time around, Jeep President and CEO Jeep Mike Manley told the Detroit Free Press "I am not entirely sure what causes the confusion on this point."
