Trump Rips Biden, Auto Worker Union Bosses, Over Crippling Electric Vehicle Mandates

Former President Donald Trump has been regularly releasing campaign videos, and he has just dropped one that is highly critical of President Joe Biden’s electric vehicles mandate he says is “crippling” the automobile industry and making vehicles more unaffordable for the “middle class.”

“What’s happening to our auto workers is an absolute disgrace and an outrage beyond belief. Auto workers are getting totally ripped off by Crooked Joe Biden and also their horrendous leadership. These people are allowing our country to do these electric vehicles that very few people want. And it is a mandate, so you will ultimately be forced to drive a car that goes for an hour and then you have to recharge. I hope you don’t want to go very far away,” he said.

“Biden has imposed the outlandish requirement that 67 percent of all new vehicles must be electric in less than ten years. That means Michigan and places that make cars, you can forget about it. You better get your union working because you can forget about it. Those cars are all going to be made in China,” he predicted.

“According to the UAW president himself, one auto company CEO used the word ‘brutality’ over 40 times in a single conversation to describe Joe Biden. I call him Crooked Joe because he is the most corrupt president in history, he’s also the most incompetent — but Joe Biden’s cruel and foolish electric vehicle mandate — that’s how bad this policy is,” Trump continued. “Your union heads know it, but the union bosses don’t want to do anything about it because they’re not leaders. But you know who’s voting for me? The people in the union.”

He went on:

The union heads and the Crooked Joe keep using the phrase “fair transition” but there’s no fair transition — first of all, people don’t want the electric car — and the people who want it should get it but we want to have all forms of transportation and all forms of motorization — to describe this unnecessary forced transition to electric vehicles. But there’s no such thing as a fair transition, that destroys over 100,000 auto manufacturing jobs (it’ll be much more than that), wastes tens of billions of dollars that should be going to the workers, and makes new cars entirely unaffordable for the middle class.

That’s a transition to hell. You’re going to hell. And your bosses are leading you right down the tubes, you shouldn’t pay your fees — they get these big fees from all of their workers, and it doesn’t matter how bad they are, they’ll endorse a Democrat even though Democrats are selling you down the tubes.

“They’re sending you to hell, you’re not going to have any jobs. All those cars are going to be made in China, every one of them. You can forget it Michigan, you can forget it, South Carolina, you can forget it, everybody. All of those cars are going to be made in China,” Trump added.

“We sit on liquid gold and we’re getting rid of combustion engines, and they sit on all of the other materials that you need for the batteries. They’re going to make all those cars, we’re not going to make any of them,” he added.

“So to every auto worker, I stand in total solidarity with you and your fight against Joe Biden’s job-killing Green New Deal insanity. It’s insanity!” he said before vowing to end Biden’s EV mandates while also promising that any American who wants one will still be able to get it.
