Biden strategists fear Trump is winning in Michigan over auto workers strike

Democratic leaders are growing concerned that former President Donald Trump is winning the Michigan battle over the Detroit auto workers strike.

Trump announced plans to meet with the auto workers during the upcoming Detroit presidential primary debate which he announced that he will not attend.

The strike

"The United Auto Workers officially began its strike against the Big Three automakers — Ford, GM and Stellantis — on Friday," Fox News reported.

"About 12,700 United Auto Workers (UAW) members are on strike, grounding production to a halt at three auto plants in Michigan, Ohio and Missouri that produce the Ford Bronco, Jeep Wrangler and Chevrolet Colorado, among other models. The strike marks the first time the UAW has carried out a simultaneous strike against the Big Three," it added.

Trump's move

"There are many unknowns about Trump’s visit to Michigan, including where he will speak and whether he will show up to the picket line as well. But his decision to go in the first place startled some Democrats," Politico reported.

“Trump scooped us. Now if we announce we’re going, it looks like we’re just going because of Trump,” said a national Democratic strategist. “We waited too long. That’s the challenge.”

Looking past the primary

"Trump's decision to skip the debate and engage with union workers, according to the Times, shows that his campaign is looking past the Republican primary and focusing its efforts on campaigning against Biden," the Blaze reported.

"And unfortunately for the president, that's also exactly how some Democrats understand it," it added.

Michigan remains a key state that Trump would like to win after losing in a close battle there in 2020. The state's autoworkers on his side would go a long way to helping.

The moves also set him apart from other GOP candidates who will be focused on each other in the upcoming debate rather than on directly reaching out to the people of Michigan.

The move by Trump's campaign is a powerful one, certain to upset Democrats in the state where Biden's campaign needs momentum.
