Few striking autoworkers show up for Trump's speech at a nonunion factory

November 13, 2023

Trump’s speech at a nonunion auto parts company was also geared toward blue-collar workers in the midst of a United Auto Workers strike. “Hopefully,” he said, “your leaders at the United Auto Workers will endorse Donald Trump.”The crowd cheered loudly. “But from a general election standpoint, Trump’s speech at a nonunion shop is a mistake. Trump failed to bring back auto manufacturing jobs.”Large throngs of Trump supporters and protesters marched near Drake before Trump arrived, waving signs and chanting. “President Trump’s here today to talk about what he accomplished during his first term and what he hopes to accomplish during his second term.”
