As GOP 2024 presidential candidates took the stage on Wednesday night, many had differing views on what to do regarding the United Auto Workers (UAW) strike. However, Trump put his money where his mouth is by visiting the auto union workers.
Fox Business commentators opened up the debate by asking the line of Republican presidential candidates their thoughts on the UAW strike, which Biden was seen visiting on Tuesday.
“We should look back at the first bill in Congress under Joe Biden. The first bill has $86 billion for the union pensions because they continue to over-promise yet under-deliver,” Senator Tim Scott, R-S.C., stated.
However, while candidates discussed the issues on the debate stage in California, President Donald Trump was the only candidate to speak directly to UAW workers, showing support.
In fact, the 45th president skipped the second debate to speak to UAW workers in Michigan, where he called out electric vehicles and China’s involvement in the auto industry.
He also pledged his “support” for UAW’s demands for “fair wages.”
