Trump’s Record Of Opposing American Jobs And Auto Rescue

Today in Michigan Donald Trump promised to bring back jobs to America. One look at Trump’s record, though, and the GOP nominee has actually wanted to destroy US jobs.

Trump opposed the auto rescue last August saying, “You could have let it go, and rebuilt itself, through the free enterprise system. You could have let it go bankrupt, frankly, and rebuilt itself, and a lot of people felt it should happen.” 1.5 million American–338,000 of those in Michigan–jobs were saved in the auto rescue–and Trump thinks those jobs should have been destroyed.

Donald Trump, with his dangerous temperament, is the last person we want holding any power over the levers of the economy. His disastrous economic policies and opposition to the auto rescue his would undoubtedly put the livelihoods of millions of Americans at risk.

Trump Dismissed The Auto Rescue: “You Could Have Let It Go Bankrupt”

In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Donald Trump just claimed, “I’m constantly talking about Michigan with the cars and what’s happening,” suggesting he’s been a supporter of the auto industry.

Surprise: Trump doesn’t support auto workers. Taking a page from Mitt “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt” Romney, Trump previously wasn’t so happy about the auto rescue:

Republicans Turned Their Backs On Auto Workers

The American auto industry is roaring back with a record number of car sales in 2015, but Republicans were nowhere to be seen when auto workers needed them most.

Thanks to the auto rescue, millions of U.S. jobs were saved. Republicans on the other hand would have followed Mitt Romney in letting Detroit go bankrupt.

Donald Trump said “you would have wound up in the same place” with or without the auto rescue.

Ted Cruz was asked about the 2.6 million jobs saved by the auto rescue. He said, “I don’t think the federal government should be engaged in bailouts.”

When asked about the auto rescue, Marco Rubio said, “I don’t think that was the way to handle it.”

Asked if he supports the auto rescue by President Obama to save millions of jobs, Jeb Bush said, “No.”

Bush called the rescue a “form of capitalism when the government intervenes in a very muscular way and I don’t believe that that’s appropriate.”

Asked about Jeep manufacturing in Toledo, Ohio, John Kasich told the questioner, “I can’t believe you wanted […]
