    Trump, Chrysler continue war of words on Jeep | The Detroit News | detroitnews.com

    Chrysler repeatedly has said it has no intention of moving Jeep production to China — merely to add Jeep production there for Chinese buyers.

    Gilles, who also heads Chrysler's SRT brand, responded to Trump, tweeting an expletive: "You are full of …" More than 6,700 people retweeted or favorited the comment. Later Thursday, Gilles tweeted: "I apologize for my language, but lies are just that, lies. Thanks for the support people."

    lol all of the sudden Libs believe what a corporation says. Well I never.

    You are in idiot. They are playing semantics. They got Billions in Bail out money, and they are making a Decision to Manufacture Jeeps in China instead of Making them here and shipping them.

    Any one want to bet that the plant built in China will have a capacity much larger than is required to meet the need of the Asian market? When the plant is built and people trained which will take a few years, Jeep production here will disappear. I've got a hundred bucks, any takers?

    Ralph Gilles, Chrysler Executive, Lashes Out At Donald Trump


    11/01/2012

    By Bernie Woodall

    DETROIT, Nov 1 (Reuters) - A Chrysler executive told Donald Trump in a Tweet on Thursday that the real estate executive and television personality was "full of shit" for repeating a notion that Chrysler is shipping U.S. Jeep production to China, which the automaker refutes.

    Ralph Gilles, the head of product design for Chrysler, became the second top Chrysler executive in three days to strongly deny the claim, which was first made by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney last week to a crowd in Ohio.

    Trump, from his Twitter account, said, "Obama is a terrible negotiator. He bails out Chrysler and now Chrysler wants to send all Jeep manufacturing to China--and will!"

    To which Gilles, from his Twitter account, responded to Trump: "You are full of shit!"

    In a second Tweet, Gilles added: "I apologize for my language, but lies are just that, lies."

    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.

    If Republicans have to lie to make their point, what's the point?


    Fox Airs Misleading Fact Check Of Romney Jeep Ad


    Fox News chief national correspondent Jim Angle provided a misleading fact check of Mitt Romney's ad claiming that Chrysler is sending a Jeep production line to China. Angle cherry picked a line from Chrysler's CEO to portray Romney's ad as accurate. In fact, Chrysler has made it clear that Romney's claims are false.

    In addition to Chrysler, there has been strong criticism from GM, fact checkers, and local media in Ohio of Romney's false claims that Jeep is sending U.S. jobs to China. On Tuesday, GM spokesman Greg Martin stated: "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." PolitiFact rated Romney's claim "pants on fire" false, and The Washington Post's resident fact checker, Glenn Kessler, gave the ad "four Pinocchios."

    Fox previously attempted to hide the backlash to Romney's ad.
