Trump on US auto industry: Buy American, Hire American

American automobile manufacturers will bring jobs back to America, under US President Donald Trump, the White House said in a statement released March 15.

Ford revealed its plan of canceling a plant in Mexico and generating 700 jobs in Michigan.

General Motors, on the other hand, announced of investing $1 billion in the US, creating more than 1,000 new jobs.

Fiat Chrysler likewise announced its $1 billion investment to upgrade two plants in the US, producing 2,000 jobs.

“We’re going to make the process much more simple for auto companies, and everyone else who wants to do business in the United States,” said Trump.

He also said that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Environmental Protection Agency will reinstate the Midterm Evaluation of the Corporate Average Fuel Economy and the standards on greenhouse gas emissions for the auto industry.

The two agencies will work together to utilize a “data-driven process” in conducting the said evaluation and the emission standards in accordance to its original timetable.

Further, Trump’s administration will study and revise, if necessary, the regulations imposed on automakers as well as the attendant costs carried by consumers.

NewsNarratives (formerly Wired Correspondence) aims to become an independent and progressive online magazine that will focus on underreported social issues and human interest stories in the Philippines and elsewhere written in narrative, longform journalism. We intend to extensively cover stories of people and communities whose struggles are left undercovered, unheard, or unaddressed by the governments or other institutions. But as a progressive publication, we focus less on what these institutions failed to do for them, rather focus more on what can still be done. Then again, it’s not all about the failures and struggles. We also want good stories that inspire and give hope. So, we will feature stories of people who won life’s struggles in hopes of learning from them and of ordinary individuals who are contributing extraordinary work whether to their family or community—yes, the many unsung heroes in our society. We aim to help and inspire people through our storytelling, by producing content that targets the heart to feel and provokes the brain to act on it—in a good way. We start all these in our own backyard, the Philippines, with a dream of pursuing elsewhere.

  1. Increased jobs is good, but that’s only part of the situation. No way would I consider buying a new car produced under “fewer regulations”, in other words a vehicle that will be less safe and more polluting.
