Trump to skip second debate and rally with striking autoworkers

September 20, 2023

Former President Donald Trump has made a decision to forgo participation in the upcoming second Republican primary debate in California.

In a development  initially reported by The Daily Wire, the former president is instead planning to deliver a speech to a group of striking autoworkers in Detroit.

In a strategic move, the confirmed itinerary for former President Donald Trump's 2024 campaign has been revealed.

As reported by CBS News and CNBC, Trump has made the decision to steer clear of engaging in debates with his Republican contenders for the second time.

The Last Debate

The former president made headlines last month when he opted to skip the highly anticipated Fox News debate.

Instead, he chose to engage in an exclusive interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson. This decision sent shockwaves throughout the political landscape, leaving many wondering about the implications of the unconventional move.

In the recent development, it has been reported that former President Donald Trump has expressed his intention to deliver a speech to a gathering of current and former union members hailing from the auto industry and other sectors.

However, specific details regarding the exact time and location of this anticipated address have yet to be disclosed.

The United Auto Workers (UAW) labor union has declared a strike against major automotive giants Ford, General Motors (GM), and Stellantis.

The UAW's decision to take this bold step is primarily driven by their demands for better wages and a pursuit of what they refer to as "economic and social justice."

When asked during a recent interview on NBC's "Meet The Press" which side he was on in the auto industry impasse, Trump responded, “I’m on the side of making our country great. … The auto workers are being sold down the river by their leadership, and their leadership should endorse Trump.”

The Union's Thoughts on Trump

President of United Auto Workers Shawn Fain has refrained from endorsing President Joe Biden for a second term, but he does not appear to be a Trump supporter.

"Every fiber of our union is being poured into fighting the billionaire class and an economy that enriches people like Donald Trump at the expense of workers,” Fain said in a statement reported by the Daily Wire.

“We can’t keep electing billionaires and millionaires that don’t have any understanding what it is like to live paycheck to paycheck and struggle to get by and expecting them to solve the problems of the working class.”
