Trump Campaign Statement on UAW President’s Remarks
September 07, 2023
Joe Biden’s Electric Vehicle mandate will murder the U.S. auto industry and kill countless union autoworker jobs forever, especially in Michigan and the Midwest. There is no such thing as a “fair transition” to the destruction of these workers’ livelihoods and the obliteration of this cherished American industry. The only acceptable policy for UAW members should be the complete and total repeal of Biden's catastrophic EV mandate. President Trump looks forward to doing exactly that on his first day back in the Oval Office. Union leadership must decide whether they will stand with Biden and other far-left political cronies in Washington, or whether they will stand with front-line autoworkers and President Trump.
President Trump saved the U.S. auto industry and did more for autoworkers than any leader in history—withdrawing from TPP, renegotiating the Korea deal to restore the protective tariff on foreign pickup trucks, and replacing the NAFTA disaster with the U.S.M.C.A., which imposed tough auto rules-of-origin to defend American workers. That's why autoworkers will be voting for President Trump in massive numbers in 2024.
