President Trump promised to undo the damage the Biden administration has inflicted on the U.S. economy and American autoworkers in a powerful new statement. On Tuesday, Trump slammed his political opponent for pushing for a “draconian” electric vehicle mandate.
“Joe Biden’s draconian and indefensible Electric Vehicle mandate will annihilate the U.S. auto industry and cost countless thousands of autoworkers their jobs,” he wrote in an official statement released through his campaign.
Biden was scheduled to visit striking United Auto Workers (UAW) in Wayne County, Michigan, on Tuesday in a likely attempt to counter President Trump’s primetime speech that will be delivered to autoworkers in Clinton Township the next day.
Trump flamed Biden’s political maneuvering in his statement, writing, “The only thing Biden could say today that would help the striking autoworkers is to announce the immediate termination of his ridiculous mandate. Anything else is just a feeble and insulting attempt to distract American labor from this vicious Biden betrayal.”
President Trump has relentlessly attacked Biden on the issue of auto manufacturing, boldly slamming the administration’s push for electric vehicles.
“Crooked Joe should be ashamed to show his face before these hardworking Americans he is stabbing in the back,” he added.
Trump has previously criticized Biden for “killing the United Autoworkers with his WEAK stance on China” and his “ridiculous insistence” on electric vehicles. He also noted that Joe Biden was only visiting Michigan because he “saw that I was going to Michigan this week.”
In his Tuesday statement, Trump said, “With Biden, it doesn’t matter what hourly wages they get, in three years there will be no autoworker jobs as they will all come out of China and other countries. With me, there will be jobs and wages like you’ve never seen before. Our economy will grow!”
President Trump’s decision to deliver a speech in Michigan and meet with striking autoworkers is also a strategic political play. Wednesday evening is the same night as the second Republican presidential primary debate in California.
