Democrats Panic as Trump Plans to Visit Striking Auto Workers
Trump will skip the second GOP primary debate and instead visit striking auto workers in Detroit.
Democrats are reportedly panicking over plans by former President Donald Trump, the front-runner of the GOP presidential primary, to visit auto workers striking against General Motors (GM), Ford, and Stellantis in Detroit, Michigan.
Members of the United Auto Workers (UAW) are currently on strike against the Big Three, pushing to secure a new labor contract that includes wage increases to keep up with inflation and commitments that their jobs will not be eliminated by Biden’s Electric Vehicles (EVs) agenda.
This week, sources confirmed to Breitbart News that Trump will skip the second GOP primary debate and instead visit striking auto workers in Detroit.
Trump’s planned visit, according to Politico, has Democrats and President Joe Biden’s White House rattled, with one union adviser calling the move “kinda genius.”
“We should not underestimate Donald Trump. He’s a survivor and this is going to be a very hard-fought campaign,” Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) told Politico.
“We need a message to working-class Americans,” Khanna said. “Right now, they’re still hurting in terms of gas prices, food prices, housing costs, utility costs, and they don’t feel like their wages are going up fast enough, and they feel like the very wealthy are getting too much of the rewards. That’s what I heard on the picket lines.”

Likewise, a Democrat strategist told Politico that “Trump scooped us” with the visit to striking auto workers, referencing the fact that Biden has yet to make a stop. Biden sought to send two administration officials to negotiate a contract between the Big Three and auto workers but the trip was canceled after pushback from the UAW.
