Donald Trump has sent a tweet which appears to warn the world’s third biggest automaker about their practises.

The President-elect blasted General Motors, telling his 18.5 million followers that the car company sends their Chevy Cruze model over the Mexican-US border tax-free.

"Make in U.S.A.or pay big border tax!," Mr Trump said.

Early December last year, Mr Trump took aim at Boeing over costs for the replacement Air Force One. Boeing fell by 1.5pc after the tweet but ended the trading day positive.

Barely a week after taking shots at Boeing, Donald Trump took a swipe at Lockheed Martin's F-35 fighter jet program, saying the cost was “out of control".
