Trump vows to abolish Biden’s EV mandate that “only benefits China”
By Belle Carter // May 06, 2024

Former President Donald Trump has lambasted President Joe Biden's "Bidenomics," vowing to throw out the current president's economic policies and reinstate his very own "MAGAnomics" on the first day he reclaims the White House seat.

During a campaign rally in Freeland, Michigan on May 1, Trump said he would end Biden's economic agenda that is harming the Great Lakes State and only benefits China. He said he would bring the car industry back to the state. "I will terminate Joe Biden's radical plan to kill Michigan's economy by repealing his insane electric vehicle mandate," he said.

The former POTUS pointed out that electric cars are not worth the dollars. "There's a problem: They're very expensive and they don't go far. Not going far is not good," Trump said. "Also, they're not going to be made in Michigan. They're going to be made in China, every single one going to be made in China."

Trump also revealed that Shawn Fein, the head of the international union United Auto Workers (UAW), endorsed Biden but admitted a "great majority" of UAW members already turned their backs on the president and would not vote for him. "United Auto Workers, I just want to tell you, the head of the United Auto Workers has really let you down to agree with that whole situation that they just did. That's so good for China and it's so bad for Michigan," the 45th president said. "But I'm gonna turn it around."

He promised to put tariffs on foreign cars to bring the car industry back to Michigan. Trump added that "Crooked Joe will rip out your auto jobs and send them immediately to China" and contrasted it with a pledge "to take jobs out of China and bring jobs back to Michigan" if he gets back in the White House. "We're going to keep Chinese cars the hell out of America. We don't want them. We don't want Chinese cars," Trump said.

Meanwhile, an Ohio Senate candidate who built one of the largest dealerships in the U.S. previously said that a Chinese company called BYD could "decimate" the American auto industry amid the pushed transition from gas-fueled cars to electric vehicles. "China has a company that people will start hearing a lot about called BYD," Bernie Moreno told Breitbart News Saturday in March. "They are building these giant, massive factories in Mexico and want to ship these cars over to the U.S. – $15,000-$20,000 electric vehicles – that would decimate our auto industry in America."

There were also reports that Swedish-based, but Chinese-owned carmaker Volvo (a subsidiary of China's Geely) is about to beat the competition as soon as this summer with the introduction of a small battery electric SUV, the EX30, in the United States.

Biden announced his rule to begin phasing out purchases of new gas-powered vehicles in March. The rule requires that at least 70 percent of their fleets be EVs or hybrids by 2032 in an attempt to scale back on greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, MI Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has signed an executive directive that will transition the state's vehicles to all-electric by 2040.

Trump and Musk disagree on electric vehicles

Reports indicated that Trump doesn't see eye-to-eye with Big Tech mogul Elon Musk on electric vehicles.

In an interview on CNBC's "SquawkBox" back in March, the former president said he met with the Tesla CEO recently, but said he didn't know whether he would eventually receive Musk's endorsement. While he personally likes Musk, the two are "obviously" not on the same page when it comes to "electric cars."

It was reported that the two met in Palm Beach, Florida, as Trump looked to boost donations to his presidential campaign. Musk later said he would not donate money to "either candidate for U.S. president." Musk publicly claimed he voted for Biden in 2020, though, according to his biographer, he stayed home on Election Day. In May 2022, Musk said he planned on voting Republican in "this election," but didn't specify if he meant the midterms or the 2024 presidential election. Later that year, he said he was undecided on whether he'd vote for Trump.

Trump claimed to be "all for" EV production, but he suggested that an all-electric future is impractical in the short term due to the state of the U.S. electric grid, which he described as "obsolete and a disaster."

He directly blamed it on Biden. "Electric cars – there's not even the possibility to go all-electric," he added. "This Biden all-electric mandate is by very, very stupid people."
