Trump to speak to autoworkers instead of attending second GOP debate

The GOP debate will be held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute in Simi Valley, Calif.

Trump’s team has not yet released details on where the speech will be held, but it is expected he will address over 500 union workers representing different trades, including autoworkers. And while a visit to the picket line has been discussed, a person familiar said it was “unlikely” Trump would make a visit due to logistics.

Trump plans to give his speech during prime time, potentially conflicting with — and overshadowing — the second GOP debate in California.

Trump has not officially weighed in on the strike, although he posted to Truth Social on Sunday night, “The United Autoworkers are being sold down the “drain” with this all Electric Car SCAM.” Along with Trump’s visit to Detroit, his team also plans to release a radio ad targeting union workers.

In a statement, UAW president Shawn Fain described Trump’s decision to come to Detroit as out of touch.

“Every fiber of our union is being poured into fighting the billionaire class and an economy that enriches people like Donald Trump at the expense of workers,” Fain said. “We can’t keep electing billionaires and millionaires that don’t have any understanding what it is like to live paycheck to paycheck and struggle to get by and expecting them to solve the problems of the working class.”
