Statement from Trump Campaign on Crooked Joe Biden’s Attempt to Run Cover for His Disastrous EV Mandate

May 14, 2024

"Joe Biden's action today is a weak and futile attempt to distract from the grievous harm his insane Electric Vehicle mandate is doing to the U.S. auto industry and how his radical policies are wiping out thousands of American auto jobs.  The fact that these tariffs do not apply to gas-powered cars and trucks but only to Chinese EVs shows that this has nothing to do with protecting American Workers. It's all about Crooked Joe's agenda of killing gas-powered automobiles while forcing Americans into ultra-expensive Electric Vehicles they don't want and can't afford. If Joe Biden truly wanted to help U.S. auto workers, he would announce that he is rescinding his ridiculous EV mandate effective immediately. Far from being tough on China, Joe Biden is giving Chinese companies hundreds of billions of dollars in U.S. taxpayer subsidies through his so-called Inflation Reduction Act. The entire Green New Scam is a Biden giveaway to Crooked Joe's Chinese masters. Americans who want to end Biden's betrayals and truly stand up for American Workers will vote for President Trump."
