On the other hand, Trump’s glib statement “See the millions of cars they are selling to the U.S. Terrible. We will stop this.” seems to show that he is unaware BMW has a final assembly plant in Spartanburg South Carolina, which exports many of the American built cars back to Europe. Mercedes has a similar assembly plant in Alabama.
Trump’s understanding of the car business is about 30 years out of date. If he wants to bring back jobs to US, start by repealing the unobtainable CAFE fuel efficiency requirement that is distorting consumer demand and distracting the car designers from making cars more useful to the buyers. People are having to buy trucks and vans in order to get what they need or want.
