Trump backs US auto workers as they prepare to strike, Biden says he’s 'not worried'

A strike could begin in less than two weeks.

Auto workers around the nation who are planning to strike officially have a powerful ally on their side: The 45th President of the United States.

Former President Trump recently put out a video message expressing his support for auto workers around the nation, many of whom are planning to go on strike over the current state of working conditions in the automobile industry. 



Joe Biden is not at all concerned about this possibility; he believes the protest will not even start to begin with. 

"I’m not worried about a strike," Biden revealed on Monday as he arrived in Philadelphia before a speech for Labor Day. "I don’t think it’s going to happen."

In his video address, former President Trump proclaimed that "What's happening to our auto workers is an absolute disgrace and an outrage beyond belief," and added that they are "getting totally ripped off by Crooked Joe Biden and also their horrendous leadership."

"Because these people are allowing our country to do these electric vehicles that very few people want," he continued, "And it's a mandate so you'll ultimately be forced to drive in a car that goes for an hour and then you have to have it recharged. I hope you don't want to go very far away."

"Biden has imposed the outlandish requirement that 67 percent of all new vehicles must be electric in less than ten years. That means Michigan and places that make cars, you can forget about it. you better get your union working because you can forget about it. Those cars are all going to be made in China."

Trump also said that "According to the UAW president himself, one auto company CEO used the word 'brutality' over 40 times in a single conversation to describe Joe Biden."

"I call him Crooked Joe because he's the most corrupt president in history," noted Trump. "He's also the most incompetent."

He went on to blast Biden's plan, saying "there's no such thing as a fair transition that destroys over 100,000 auto manufacturing jobs, it will be much more than that, wastes tens of billions of dollars that should be going to the workers, and makes new cars entirely unaffordable for the middle class."

"That's a transition to hell. You're going to hell and your bosses are leading you right down the tubes. You shouldn't pay your fees. They get these big fees from all of their workers."

"So to every auto worker, I stand in total solidarity with you in your fight against Joe Biden's job-killing Green New Deal insanity," emphasized Trump. "It's insanity. When I am your president, I will deliver higher wages for auto workers. I will protect your jobs. I will end Joe Biden's catastrophic electric vehicle mandate. And by the way, if you want an electric car, you're going to get it. But you're going to be able to get all other types of cars, types of vehicles that you want."

The former president concluded that people must "vote for Republicans" but importantly, "vote for Trump," because "if we don't win this election, our country, not only in terms of auto workers, our country will go to hell."

Last month, representatives of the United Auto Workers union reported that members voted almost unanimously in favor of putting on a strike at the Detroit Three automakers. While not yet a certainty, the possibility of such a protest exists given that an agreement has not yet been reached, and that the current contract expires on Sept. 14. 

While Biden has stated he is "not worried" about an upcoming strike, the United Auto Workers president expressed he is "shocked" by the reaction, and that Biden "must know something we don't know."
