Following news of President Joe Biden’s administration’s assault on gasoline-powered vehicles, the campaign of former President Donald Trump is defending Americans.

According to Fox News, the administration has finalized new gas-powered car regulations that many believe would essentially force consumers to buy pricey electric vehicles.

Karoline Leavitt, a campaign spokesperson for Trump, told Fox News that “Joe Biden’s extreme electric vehicle mandate will force Americans to buy ultra-expensive cars they do not want and cannot afford while destroying the U.S. auto industry in the process.” “This radical policy is anti-American, anti-jobs, and anti-consumer and anti-American.”

“It will destroy the livelihoods of countless U.S. autoworkers while sending the U.S. auto industry to China. President Trump will reverse Joe Biden’s extreme electric vehicle mandate on Day One,” she said.

Fox News adds:

Meanwhile, under the regulations unveiled Wednesday, the federal government will enforce the most stringent tailpipe emissions restrictions ever finalized beginning with model year 2027 light-duty and medium-duty vehicles. Those regulations are slated to progressively ramp up through 2032, forcing most new car purchases to be battery electric and plug-in hybrid within that time frame.

In one “low cost” model EPA outlined in the rule, administration officials said automakers would be forced to ensure 56% of light-duty car sales are battery electric and another 13% are hybrid by 2032, meaning nearly 70% of new cars would be zero-emissions or low-emissions by then.

However, Biden emphasized his new rules, which might not be well-liked in Michigan, a swing state.

“Three years ago, I set an ambitious target: that half of all new cars and trucks sold in 2030 would be zero-emission,” the president said. “I brought together American automakers. I brought together American autoworkers. Together, we’ve made historic progress. Hundreds of new expanded factories across the country. Hundreds of billions in private investment and thousands of good-paying union jobs. And we’ll meet my goal for 2030 and race forward in the years ahead.”

Congress has been asked to intervene and stop the idea by American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers President and CEO Chet Thompson and American Petroleum Institute President and CEO Mike Sommers.

“At a time when millions of Americans are struggling with high costs and inflation, the Biden administration has finalized a regulation that will unequivocally eliminate most new gas cars and traditional hybrids from the U.S. market in less than a decade,” the two men said. “As much as the President and EPA claim to have ‘eased’ their approach, nothing could be further from the truth.”

“This regulation will make new gas-powered vehicles unavailable or prohibitively expensive for most Americans,” they said. “For them, this wildly unpopular policy is going to feel and function like a ban.”

Days after the United Auto Workers union President Shawn Fain announced that the group was officially supporting Biden’s reelection in January, he revealed shocking information about the candidate that the majority of members backed during a live appearance on Fox News.

It seemed like he was saying Donald Trump would win.

Following Fain’s discussion of the declining sales of electric cars and how that might impact the union labor force going forward, host Neil Cavuto pointed out that a sizable portion of UAW members had historically backed Republican presidents such as Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and other presidents.

Before asking Fain what he thought of that, Cavuto continued by pointing out that many UAW members supported Trump in 2016 and 2020 and still do.

“Look, it’s democracy in action,” the UAW boss began. “Let me be clear about this: A great majority of our members will not vote for President Biden. Yeah, some will, but that’s the reality of this. The majority of our members are gonna vote their paychecks. They’re gonna vote for an economy that works for them.”

Although Fain did not explicitly state that the “great majority” would vote for Trump, that was the implication Fain left because Cavuto had just brought up the rank-and-file support of the UAW for past Republican presidents.
