Donald Trump was thrown for a loop over this dark secret about China’s auto industry

China is looking to break into the American automotive market.

But nothing with the Chinese is as it appears.

And Donald Trump was thrown for a loop over this dark secret about China’s auto industry.

China’s automotive industry is on the rise globally

The Chinese automotive industry has made major advances over the past decade and has begun to export vehicles to countries around the globe.

And the push for electric vehicles has only fueled the rise of Chinese automakers.

The country controls the majority of the supply chain from mineral processing to manufacturing batteries for electric vehicles.

Chinese electric vehicle company BYD passed Tesla to become the largest manufacturer of electric vehicles in the world.

Gatestone Institute senior fellow Gordon Chang told Fox News Digital that there’s a dark side to the Chinese auto industry.

He said that China could flood the American market with electric vehicles and wipe out American auto manufacturing jobs.

“China makes 60% of the world’s EVs,” Chang explained. “It manufactures 10 million more cars per year than it can absorb in its domestic market, which means it must export those additional cars, which means it floods the markets around the world.”

The Chinese government heavily subsidizes the industry to give it a leg up against its foreign competition.

“And we’ve got to remember the massive subsidies that China puts into its EVs,” Chang continued. “Those subsidies are about three to four times the size of subsidies in OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries, for instance.”

China has flagrantly violated global trade agreements to boost its domestic industries.

“Admission to the World Trade Organization was supposed to sort of integrate China into a global system of rules. That hasn’t worked. China has openly violated its WTO obligations,” Chang said.

The goal of China’s communist government is to destroy American manufacturing according to Chang.

“We do not want China to own all of our manufacturing capacity so that there are no American manufacturers left,” Chang stated. “I know that that sounds extreme, but that’s what China wants. And we have the power to stop it because this is our country.”

Donald Trump attacked for warning about the threat of Chinese vehicles 

China hasn’t begun to sell vehicles in the United States on a large scale yet.

Instead, the Chinese have moved into auto parts manufacturing in Mexico and Canada, which supplies America.

By moving into Mexico and Canada, China can bypass potential tariffs by taking advantage of those countries’ free trade agreements with the United States.

Former President Donald Trump warned about the threat of the Chinese automotive industry sneaking in from Mexico at a March rally in Dayton, Ohio.

“China now is building a couple of massive plants, where they’re going to build the cars in Mexico and they think that they’re going to sell those cars into the United States with no tax at the border,” Trump said at the time.

He warned Chinese President Xi that cars his country built in Mexico would be slapped with a tariff if they were imported to the United States.

“If I get elected. Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s gonna be a bloodbath for the whole, that’s going to be the least of it,” Trump continued. “It’s going to be a bloodbath for the country. That’ll be the least of it. But they’re not gonna sell those cars.”

The media seized on the “bloodbath” comment while ignoring how Trump correctly pointed out that there is a grave threat posed by the Chinese auto industry.
