On Sunday, in response to United Auto Workers (UAW) President Shawn Fain’s support for President Biden, former President Trump criticized the union leader, claiming he does not understand the automobile industry’s future.

Trump stated on Sunday via Truth Social that he had viewed Fain’s “Face the Nation” interview with CBS News, during which the UAW leader made numerous attacks against the former president, earlier in the day.

“[Fain] bought into Biden’s ‘vision’ of all Electric Vehicles, which require far fewer workers to make each car but, more importantly, are not wanted in large numbers by the consumer, and will ALL be made in China,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform.

“I want them to be made in the USA, every type of car, and would require China, and other countries, through TARIFFS, or otherwise, to build plants here, with our workers. Now they are building in Mexico, the biggest plants anywhere, and selling their cars, Tariff Free, into the good ol’ USA. Shawn Fain doesn’t understand this or have a clue. Get rid of this dope & vote for DJT. I will bring the Automobile Industry back to our Country,” Trump continued.

Last week, the union issued a formal endorsement of Biden’s reelection campaign. At the time, Fain referred to Trump as a “scab.”
