TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Economy Minister Nobuteru Ishihara said on Friday he had no comment on tweets by U.S. President-elect Donald Trump about Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T) before Trump takes office.

Trump threatened in a tweet to impose heavy taxes on the automaker if it builds its Corolla cars for the U.S. market at a plant in Mexico.
