United Auto Workers endorsed Biden, but their members want Trump: “I see Trump fighting for my job…”

A recent poll conducted by Bloomberg News and Morning Consult shows that Trump currently leads Biden in all seven swing states, including Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Nevada, Wisconsin, and Michigan. These key states are the ones that usually bring the winner to the general election. This year, Biden and Trump are expected to face what appears to be a rematch, despite millions of voters complaining that none of the candidates is the best option.

Trump won in Michigan, Idaho, and Missouri this past weekend

On Saturday, former U.S. President Donald Trump secured victory in three states: Michigan, Idaho, and Missouri. The weekend results just confirmed his frontrunner position in the Republican primaries, as his only challenger, Nikki Haley, is expected to drop out of the race as soon as after Super Tuesday. Trump’s team can then focus on the key swing states to try to gather as much support from voters as possible.

Trump clash with United Auto Workers union leader in January

“They’ve led their industry right into the poor house, and now they’ve finished it off because, if you — if Biden gets elected, you won’t have an autoworker working in the United States. Everything’s going over to China and other countries outside,” Trump said last month, attacking United Auto Workers President Shawn Fain. Speaking to Fox News, Trump dismissed the United Auto Workers as a “hopeless case.”

The feud between the two comes as President Joe Biden and Trump compete to win over Michigan, a key battleground state home to the most auto workers in the U.S. Though Trump won Michigan in 2016 against Hillary Clinton, he lost the state to Biden in 2020.

United Auto Workers President Shawn Fain endorsed Biden in January

The United Auto Workers President, Shawn Fain, in January has endorsed U.S. President Joe Biden in what appears to be a critical step in his reelection bid since he is trying to win the support from the working-class Americans. The president behind the 400,000-member union explained his decision citing Biden’s commitment to help the American workers especially noting Biden’s support during the UAW’s strike last fall which is evidence of Biden’s priorities.

Current and retired United Auto Workers members don’t agree with the union’s president to support Biden

While the United Auto Workers (UAW) officially endorsed Joe Biden, indicating organizational backing, some active and retired union members express a preference for the opposite direction.

“Donald Trump speaks our language. He came in and speaks directly to us,” one UAW member told FOX Business’ Grady Trimble outside the union headquarters in Detroit.

“I would say, among the people I work with across all demographic spans, really, there’s a lot of support for Trump,” a second member added on “Varney & Co.” on Friday.

The UAW publicly supported Biden for the 2024 presidential election in January. Following this endorsement, UAW President Shawn Fain stated to CBS News that a substantial majority of the working-class population in America would recognize “the truth” and favor Biden over Trump.

“I believe the overwhelming majority of UAW members and working-class people, when the facts and the truth are put in front of them, will support Joe Biden for president,” Fain previously said.

Trump issued a cautionary statement when UAW went on a six-week long strike last year

Last autumn, the United Auto Workers (UAW) initiated labor and market unrest by striking against Ford, General Motors, and Stellantis in Michigan, a movement that lasted six weeks. In the midst of this, Trump issued a cautionary statement regarding the union’s endorsement of Biden, suggesting that the Democratic push for electric vehicles might ultimately endanger their jobs.

“If Biden gets elected, you won’t have an autoworker working in the United States. Everything’s going over to China and other countries outside,” Trump told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo in a recent “Sunday Mornings Futures” interview. “This electric car mandate is insane,” he continued. “They don’t go far, they cost too much, and they’re going to be made in China because they have the material to make them. We have oil and gas, we have gasoline, and that’s what people want, for the most part.”

Another perspective came from a UAW member who, on Friday, emphasized Trump’s advocacy for their employment over Biden’s efforts. Speaking to Trimble, the individual said:

“I see Trump fighting for my job much more than Joe Biden ever has,” the man told Trimble. “[He] hasn’t done anything. Trump is much more reliable on trade deals, much more trustworthy, much more experienced.”
