The likely GOP presidential nominee is on a rampage against the autoworkers union.
“Former President Trump on Sunday dug into United Auto Workers President Shawn Fain for his endorsement of President Biden, arguing the UAW leader does not ‘understand’ the future of the automobile industry.
Trump, in a Truth Social post on Sunday, said he watched Fain’s interview with CBS News’s ‘Face the Nation’ earlier in the day, in which the UAW leader took multiple swipes at the former president.
The former president called Fain a “STIFF” who is helping sell the automobile industry ‘right into the big, powerful hands of China.’
‘He [Fain] bought into Biden’s “vision” of all Electric Vehicles, which require far fewer workers to make each car but, more importantly, are not wanted in large numbers by the consumer, and will ALL be made in China,’ Trump continued, in reference to the Biden administration’s push towards electric vehicles (EVs).
‘I want them to be made in the USA, every type of car, and would require China, and other countries, through TARIFFS, or otherwise, to build plants here, with our workers. Now they are building in Mexico, the biggest plants anywhere, and selling their cars, Tariff Free, into the good ol’ USA. Shawn Fain doesn’t understand this or have a clue. Get rid of this dope & vote for DJT. I will bring the Automobile Industry back to our Country,’ he added.”
