Amidst the ongoing autoworkers’ strike, President Trump made a promise to the auto industry that electing him would result in tripled jobs and a revived auto industry.  

President Trump has promised autoworkers in America job security as well as the freedom for citizens to have a choice in their cars and trucks.

On Truth Social, President Trump wrote, “The United Autoworkers have no choice. They are not being told the truth by their union ‘heads.’ The Auto Industry is DEAD if they don’t VOTE FOR TRUMP.”

As reported by the Washington Times, autoworkers walked off the job at motor plants owned by powerhouse brands like Ford, General Motors, and Stellantis.

Now, over 30 days into the strike, Reuters reported on the growing concern about the struggling industry with Bill Ford, executive chairman of the Ford brand, warning, “If it continues, it will have a major impact on the American economy.” 

Another concern President Trump addressed in his post online is Joe Biden’s Electric Vehicle (EV) mandate that all cars sold in the U.S. must be electric within ten years.

On top of the EV mandate, the Biden administration announced a proposal for a hike in fuel economy standards. As reported by Reuters, these raised standards would cost manufacturers billions of dollars in fines as they are just not feasible. During his address to striking autoworkers in Michigan, RSBN reported President Trump slammed Biden for wanting to destroy the auto industry. 

In addressing this, President Trump wrote, “I will triple their jobs within two years, immediately authorizing CHOICE OF PROPULSION IN ALL CARS (and Trucks!). Car Choice, School Choice! Under the Biden Administration, there will be no such thing as a U.S. Autoworker within 3 years. All cars and trucks will be made in China and other foreign lands!”
