President Donald Trump is poised to skip out on the second GOP presidential primary debate next week and head to Detroit, Michigan, where he will reportedly meet with striking union autoworkers, multiple outlets have reported.
The initial report from The New York Times indicated that on the day of the next scheduled Republican primary debate, Sept. 27, the 45th president is slated to deliver a prime-time speech to striking union workers, possibly upstaging the GOP debate yet again.
The NYT cited sources who were familiar with the planning for the event. The second GOP debate will be held in California at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley.
In August, President Trump sat down with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson for an exclusive interview on X, which was released online just five minutes before the start time of the first scheduled Republican debate. The interview accrued tens of millions of views in minutes. To date, it has earned more than 265 million views online.
The United Auto Workers (UAW) union strike has been an important subject for the Trump campaign. In early September, RSBN reported that UAW President Shawn Fain had stated that the union planned on negotiating contracts for auto workers with several auto companies as their contract deadline approached.
The Trump campaign stated, “Joe Biden’s Electric Vehicle mandate will murder the U.S. auto industry and kill countless union autoworker jobs forever, especially in Michigan and the Midwest. There is no such thing as a ‘fair transition’ to the destruction of these workers’ livelihoods and the obliteration of this cherished American industry.”
President Trump has also warned that if Biden’s push for electric vehicles comes to fruition, “The Auto Industry in America will cease to exist!”
In his upcoming speech, Trump will likely touch on his administration’s previous policy work in support of the American auto industry.
They aren’t even debates.
Trump _IS_ MAGA.
The debate midgets are crypto- or outright-Swamp.
I would have loved it if he had decided to go to the border and do a press conference in front of Eagle Pass to highlight the border issue.
Trump should organize a debate on his terms through truth social and dare the also-rans to show up.
Last I heard some leftis like Brett baier asked pence what he’d do about this inflation Trump caused. Pence instead of saying something like what are you insane He stuttered
He’s polling at 1%
Trumps team is busy planning what they’re going to do winter if 2025 in the white house
Biden and Trump are on the same page...so no gain.
Trump has already ‘interviewed’ for the presidency, TWICE.
Once during the campaigns for the 2016 presidency.
Second time, and the most important time: DURING his presidency. Performance-wise, nobody in the current batch of republicans hopefuls, can match what Trump has done. Not a single one.
Therefore, nobody should question why Trump is so far ahead of all the others, and doesn’t need to ‘interview’ again.
Trump is a chickensh!t.
“I would have loved it if he had decided to go to the border and do a press conference in front of Eagle Pass to highlight the border issue.”
I can’t disagree with you on that.
Smart move by Trump. Why should he participate in a rigged debate? His absence will also send the Murdochs a message that they are dispensible.
GOP “debates” will resemble school children who didn’t get picked for the team sniping at each other with water pistols ...
Why would Trump “debate” with the second stringers? It appears he’s moving into general election mode. 😉
“President Trump’s new radio ad on protecting America’s auto workers from foreign competition as well as Joe Biden’s INSANE electric vehicle mandates.” (Audio/Video)
Yep it’s why lobbyists love them.
Who cares what the political class has to say? A bunch of overmanaged poll tested phrasologists.
