John Fetterman should have wanted no part of this fight.
But Fetterman walked himself right into a buzzsaw.
And now John Fetterman got some bad news from Donald Trump that will leave him a quivering wreck.
The United Auto Workers (UAW) union went on strike against the Big 3 — Chrysler, Ford, and General Motors.
Union bosses wanted more money to suck out of worker’s paychecks to funnel into the campaign accounts of Democrat politicians.
According to Open Secrets, in the 2022 election, the UAW ranked 71st out of 39,000 groups in terms of political giving with $8.8 million in contributions, which basically all went to union-label Democrats.
If union bosses can get more money in the next contract, that will increase the amount of forced dues at their disposal to fund Joe Biden’s re-election campaign and defeat Donald Trump.
The strike has the potential to drive up car prices and drag down the economy.
And naturally, John Fetterman supported the strike and pledged to join the picket line.

“I know which side I’m on. As long as these brave workers continue to walk the picket line, my entire team and I will have their backs,” Fetterman declared. “We will support them any way we can until they reach a fair deal.”
But Fetterman isn’t on the side of the workers at all.
Not only is Fetterman supporting the ability of union bosses to claw money out of worker’s paychecks as a condition of employment, but Fetterman also backs Joe Biden’s electric vehicle mandate, which dictates that two-thirds of all vehicles sold in the United States by 2032 be electric cars.
Done in the name of fighting climate change, Donald Trump explained that this mandate will actually destroy the American auto industry by shipping car manufacturing jobs to Communist China.
“The auto workers will not have any jobs, Kristen, because all of these cars are going to be made in China,” Trump said in an interview that aired on Meet the Press. “The auto workers are being sold down the river by their leadership, and their leadership should endorse Trump.”
Communist China owns a stranglehold on the materials necessary to make electric vehicles.
Fox News reports that the Communist Chinese own “75% of all lithium-ion batteries, a key part of EVs, worldwide. The nation also boasts 70% of production capacity for cathodes and 85% for anodes, two key components of such batteries.”
Trump is right that John Fetterman and union leadership sold out the autoworkers to support Joe Biden’s climate change agenda.
With the car manufacturing industry based in Michigan and Wisconsin, this could prove decisive in the 2024 election.
Trump is trying to make sure the auto workers know this truth before heading to the polls next year.
