(TargetLiberty.org) – On Tuesday, a Politico story noted that President Biden’s advisers were beginning to be worried about former President Donald Trump potentially “outmaneuvering them” and winning over the auto workers. Trump is planning on visiting Detroit to deliver a speech next week.
In the article, it is noted that Trump’s third campaign cycle is far more sophisticated than his previous ones were and that Biden’s campaign will need to rise to the challenge.
On Friday, the United Auto Workers officially went on strike against three major automakers, Stellantis, Ford, and GM. Currently, around 12,700 workers are participating in the strike, which has led to three auto plants in Ohio, Missouri, and Michigan having to halt production. This is the first time that the union has taken strike action against the Big Three automakers at the same time.
A Union adviser has argued that Trump was currently ahead of Biden on the political field and that he had people around him who knew what they needed to do. Further, he noted that Biden is currently boxed into his position.
A Democratic strategist similarly argues that even if the Democrats announced they would be visiting now, it would appear to the public as if the only reason for this decision was that Trump was going.
Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., also warned that Trump should not be underestimated and that he was going to fight hard for his campaign. Khanna added that this was the time for a message to be put out targeting working-class Americans who have had to deal with the high food, gas and housing prices at a time when their wages were not growing at an equal speed.
