On Tuesday, President Joe Biden visited members of the United Auto Workers (UAW) who are striking against General Motors (GM), Ford, and Stellantis. The president, though, failed to make mention his Electric Vehicle (EV) mandates which are partly responsible for the strike.
Tens of thousands of auto workers are striking against the Big Three across the United States, looking to secure a new labor contract that includes wage increases to keep up with Biden’s record inflation and commitments that their jobs will not be eliminated by Biden’s green energy agenda which includes EV mandates.
During his visit with UAW members in Wayne County, Michigan, Biden spoke for only a few minutes and did not mention his EV agenda or even attempt to sell it as a bonus for auto workers.

This is neither the first nor the last time the Dims have been against the interests of unions ... yet the union leaders still sheepishly endorse Dims.
and they are too stupid to care and understand.
Beat me to it.
He didn’t say anything about his 470 thousand illegals he gave work permits to wait until the United Auto Workers find out their contract is no good per Biden’s executive order.
From the article:
“The betrayal of the autoworkers by the Biden administration goes beyond inflation, 0f course. The Biden administration has been pushing policies to electrify most new vehicles within a decade or so. That rush toward electric vehicles will mean a rapid decline in payrolls for autoworkers
Indeed, China dominates the EV supply chain — a fact that will almost certainly ensure that EVs sold in the U.S. market will be, in one way or another, produced or sourced in China.
Currently, China controls critical components needed for EV batteries, including nearly 70 percent of the world’s lithium, 95 percent of manganese, 73 percent of cobalt, 70 percent of graphite, and 63 percent of nickel.
China also controls the parts needed to go into an EV battery.
About 77 percent of cathodes are made in China, along with 74 percent of separators, 82 percent of electrolytes, 92 percent of anodes, 73 percent of NMC cathodes, and 99 percent of LFP cathodes.
“Those jobs are all going to be gone, because all of those electric cars are going to be made in China,” Trump has said of Biden’s EV mandates. “That’s what’s happening.”
The Demagogic Party wants to destroy ICE auto manufacturing in the US, duh.
PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL TAKE CARE OF PEDO JOE’S MISTAKE TODAY WHEN HE MAKES HIS SPEECH.
It’s a mystery to me why the UAW didn’t disavow Joe Biden, knowing of his EV mandates being a major cause of sales resistance. What will happen if a larger part of the EV production depends more instead of less on China? This seems possible. The UAW may not be supportive of Biden for long.
If auto workers want a chance they need to call Hunter and pay him off... otherwise the Chinese win this one.
According to another FR thread, all Biden did was wander around aimlessly, like he has done other times before. This time, it seemed like he didn’t know why he was there.
Did biden mention the new battery factory coming to Michigan?
Bet the UAW would love that.
How does an 82 second rant in a megaphone = a few minutes?
So, same as always.
