Trump Vows to Overturn Biden’s ‘Extreme Electric Vehicle Mandate on Day One’

President Donald Trump has vowed that he will take action to overturn the Democrats’ radical green agenda push to eliminate gas-powered vehicles.

Trump’s presidential campaign fired back at Democrat President Joe Biden’s finalized plan on electric vehicle production.

On Wednesday, Biden unveiled the plan that is considered to be the most extreme push in history to destroy the gas-powered car industry.

The Biden administration’s plans will force consumers to drive what will be, in effect, government-mandated electric vehicles.

In a statement responding to the move, a Trump campaign spokesperson said:

“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-jobs, 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,” the statement continued.

“He will protect the freedom of Americans to drive whichever vehicle they choose, enhance President Trump’s tough tariffs on Chinese-imported cars, and save the U.S. auto industry for generations to come.”

The finalized rule was a concession to far-Left environmentalists.

Green agenda globalists and leftists have demanded the most aggressive effort ever to eliminate combustion engine vehicles.

The Washington Post called the effort “controversial.”

The outlet noted that the rule will force automakers to rapidly “ramp up sales of electric vehicles while slashing carbon emissions from gasoline-powered models.”

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) claimed that its national pollution standard would prevent more than 7 billion tons of carbon emissions.

It claimed the move would provide $100 billion in annual benefits to the U.S.

However, the plan could end up getting killed in the courts.

A statement from the EPA claims that the rule will prevent “up to 2,500 premature deaths in 2055.”

The EPA alleges that the rule will reduce “heart attacks, respiratory and cardiovascular illnesses, aggravated asthma, and decreased lung function.”

American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers President and CEO Chet Thompson and American Petroleum Institute President and CEO Mike Sommers blasted the move from Biden.

In a joint statement, Thompson and Sommers asserted that Congress needs to stop the extreme agenda.

The statement said:

“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.

“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,” the statement continued.

“For them, this wildly unpopular policy is going to feel and function like a ban.”
