(PartiallyPolitics.com) – The Trump team recently voiced significant concerns about the Biden administration’s aggressive promotion for the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs).
“Joe Biden’s push for electric cars holds potential ramifications that could gravely impact the American auto sector, possibly leading to considerable job losses in prominent automotive states such as Michigan and throughout the Midwest,” commented the Trump campaign in a detailed statement. “Optimistically foreseeing a seamless transition to this new vehicle era might be overlooking the deep-rooted implications it could have on dedicated workers and the deep-rooted automotive tradition the U.S. takes pride in.”
Back in April, the Biden administration put forth an initiative urging car manufacturers to substantially reduce carbon emissions from their respective fleets. Within the framework of this initiative, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has projected that, if these changes take effect, EVs could constitute approximately two-thirds of car sales by the year 2032.
The criticism from the Trump team is timely, given the United Auto Workers (UAW) are actively contemplating a strike against automotive giants such as Ford, General Motors, and Stellantis, which was formerly recognized as Chrysler. A growing anxiety among these workers centers on the transition to EVs, especially with regard to how it might jeopardize their long-term employment prospects and potentially diminish their wages.
“The sole policy that should be deemed acceptable for UAW members is a comprehensive reversal of Biden’s assertive EV plan,” the Trump campaign elaborated.
Anticipating a potential return to leadership, the statement hinted at decisive actions: “Upon potentially reassuming the presidential role, President Trump pledges to prioritize this pressing matter on day one. The ball is now in the court of the union’s leaders: they must determine their allegiance, be it with Biden and his political counterparts in Washington or in defense of the grassroots autoworkers, alongside President Trump,” the statement further expanded.
