General Motors announced on Thursday that it will be investing some $1 billion into electric vehicle production in the country of Mexico, dealing a humiliating blow to the Biden regime, which has begged companies to “Buy American” and “Make It In America.”
The Biden regime’s plans to invest $174 billion into the production of electric vehicles, as Biden called for on Wednesday, and somehow transfer the entire U.S. vehicle fleet to electric-only powertrains suffered a severe blow on Wednesday after General Motors’ announcement.
“At a time when General Motors is asking for a significant investment by the U.S. government in subsidizing electric vehicles, this is a slap in the face for not only UAW members and their families but also for U.S. taxpayers and the American workforce,” United Auto Workers Vice President Terry Dittes said in a statement.
Dietz also called GM “unseemly” for asking for U.S. government subsidies while moving to make vehicles outside the U.S.
Biden claimed this week that “there’s no reason why American workers can’t lead the world in the production of electric vehicles and batteries,” but he appears to have been proven wrong within 24 hours.
Many U.S. manufacturing companies, including General Motors, opened new warehouses in the U.S. during the administration of President Donald J. Trump.
Trump has indicated that he will resume holding rallies in May:
Speaking with podcast host Dan Bongino, President Trump insisted that his post-White House life is still “very political” and seemed to suggest he has not left the political arena. “It’s a different kind of life, but still very political because of the endorsements. Everyone comes and they all want the endorsement, more than they’ve ever wanted an endorsement,” said President Trump. “It’s never been an endorsement that’s meant so much, which is an honor to me.” He added, “It means victory.”
President Trump then revealed that the famously enthusiastic Make America Great Again rallies will return as soon as next month, stating that they will first be aimed at securing the midterm election for candidates he has endorsed. “It will definitely be different in terms of the setup, but we got really good at planning these events in 2020, so we will probably use a lot of those same vendors again,” a person close to President Trump reportedly told national media.
