Trump vows to undo Biden's electric vehicle plan if he becomes president

 October 2, 2023

Former President Donald Trump vowed to undo President Joe Biden's electric vehicle plans if he is elected president.

Trump shared the promise during a campaign stop in Iowa on Sunday.

Day one

"If Joe Biden's extremist mandate is allowed to stand, gas-powered cars will be gone, Iowa ethanol will be totally destroyed, and the economy of this state will be decimated," Trump said.

"When I'm back in the White House, I will save Iowa ethanol by repealing Joe Biden’s absolutely insane, job-killing electric vehicle mandate on day one," he continued.

Hurting autoworkers

"Joe Biden’s draconian and indefensible Electric Vehicle mandate will annihilate the U.S. auto industry and cost countless thousands of autoworkers their jobs," Trump wrote in a Social Truth post last week.

"The only thing Biden could say today that would help the striking autoworkers is to announce the immediate termination of his ridiculous mandate. Anything else is just a feeble and insulting attempt to distract American labor from this vicious Biden betrayal," he added.

Addressing the strike

“I wanna begin this evening these truly great Americans who truly do not get the credit they deserve,” Trump told striking autoworkers last week in Michigan.

“We love being with you and we love being with you right in your environment. You built this country, you love this country and you are the ones who make our country run. You know that right?” he added.

Trump's message was well received by both Michigan's auto industry and in Iowa, where ethanol is a major part of the industry and used in gas-powered vehicles.

The former president's numbers have continued to grow in recent weeks despite ongoing legal battles in multiple cases.

The primaries do not start until early next year but many believe Trump has already locked in his win that will set him up for a rematch with Biden next year.
