Former President Donald Trump’s plan to visit United Auto Workers (UAW) members who are striking in Detroit, Michigan, is causing some Democrats close to the White House to freak out and think that the Biden campaign needs to “step up,” according to a Politico report.
Trump is expected to skip the second GOP Presidential debate on Sept. 27, instead planning to speak with current and former UAW members in Detroit. The move has caused Democrats close to the White House to worry that the former president’s 2024 campaign strategy may be more sophisticated than in the past, according to a Politico report.
“Trump scooped us. Now if we announce we’re going, it looks like we’re just going because of Trump,” a national Democratic strategist told the outlet. “We waited too long. That’s the challenge.”
The UAW began its strike shortly after its contract with automakers expired on Sept. 14. The union is demanding a 46% pay raise over five years and a shortened work week while asking to be paid for a 40-hour work week.
Some Democrats close to the White House said the move is viewed as a “cynical ploy” to earn the support of striking UAW members, Politico reported. One union worker told the outlet that “[Trump] actually has people who know what they’re doing. He boxed Biden in. It was kinda genius.”
The Biden campaign and the White House have rejected the idea that Trump’s plan to visit Detroit “boxed Biden in,” Politico reported. The assessment comes after the White House reversed its decision to send two top officials to Detroit to support negotiations between the UAW and automaker companies on Monday, instead opting to hold a Zoom call between the parties.
United Auto Workers members strike at the Ford Michigan Assembly Plant on September 16, 2023 in Wayne, Michigan. This is the first time in history that the UAW is striking all three of the Big Three auto makers, Ford, General Motors, and Stellantis, at the same time.

Biden has come under fire since the strike was announced for failing to handle the situation better as some UAW members say they hope he’s replaced on the 2024 ticket.
“People are talking about them trying to interject themselves into our — into our negotiations,” Shawn Fain, president of the UAW, said earlier this week. “Our negotiators are fighting hard. Our leadership’s fighting hard. It’s going to be won at the negotiating table with our negotiating teams, with our members manning the picket lines and our allies out there. Who the president is now, who the former president was or the president before them, isn’t going to win this fight.”
The UAW are coddled and overpaid babies. Hell, you their current contract won’t even let them be fired. If one of them gets “laid off” they go to a after school room every day and get full pay. One such person has been doing that for 8 years or more.
Elon Mush may not have the right vehicle (IMO) but he sure as hell has the right idea for manufacturing them. I’ve done real well buying in to Tesla and believe at some point their AI will be in everything that rolls.
” I’ve done real well buying in to Tesla”
Now is a great time to celebrate your success by selling the stock.
“Pigs get fat and hogs get slaughtered.”
It’s going to be like the 70s car manufacturers in the UK..
the Union will “win”..
And the Gov, forces them to stop producing what people WANT.
Donald Dems are a big reason why Deep State has to steal elections.

One of my favorite quotes! First told to me by a day trader back in the day when we were using neural nets to try to micro-scalp equities.
I’ve been in and out of it for awhile.
During the Covid cycle I was up about 38% overall, the Game Stop thing was a different story. Lol.
The Union will plant hecklers and harrassers in the crowd.
Maybe the Biden Admin. should “Clap Back” by sending the Transportation Secretary of the United States to straighten things out. That’s the ticket.
Mayor Pete tweets “I’m packing my bags as we speak!” //
trump could put the general election in the bag with a good speech there. Cancel Global Warming crap, build ICE cars, drill baby drill, or you all won’t have jobs.
All Trump has to do is remind the workers that he stopped the flood of jobs to China, and brough unemployment down to the lowest in history.
“The UAW are coddled and overpaid babies.”
Don’t know about all auto workers but Ford’s workers suck. The last Ford truck I bought was POS.
imho this is a beautiful move.
I have a close friend who, while only peripheral to the negotiations, says with complete confidence that 40% raise and a 32-hour workweek are DOA.
Should be interesting.
Care to elaborate more?
“… I’ve done real well buying in to Tesla…”
Well, la di da.
Trump can go talk to the Hollywood writers on strike next haha
Trump is carrying out Reagan’s playbook:” Let the Democrats take the Union leaders, I will win the rank and file.
Biden strategists didn't "wait too long." They didn't have a choice; they were waiting for Biden to be well enough to go.
Attend a Trump rally and you’ll find lots of Donald Dems.
And note that Deep State never calls us out for some reason.
Gee, I wonder why...? 🤔
