(USNewsMag.com) – President Joe Biden has been pushing for new climate rules; he believes it’s one of the most important issues facing the globe. Although he has spoken a lot about the issue, he ignores the strides one US-based company has made in the clean energy industry.
On February 16, Biden tweeted about his administration’s plan to make 600,000 federal government vehicles electric. He boasted he’s bringing manufacturing back and making “buy American” a reality. Tesla Founder Elon Musk responded “ahem” and linked to an article highlighting the fact his company’s Model 3 electric vehicle is the most American car in the country.
Model 3 is literally the most made in America car in – well of course – America
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 17, 2022
Cars.com named Tesla’s Model 3 number one on the American-Made Index. According to the report, 65% of the car’s components are made in the US or Canada. The car’s American models are built in Fremont, California with another factory soon to be built in Texas.
There’s speculation Biden ignores Musk’s many accomplishments in the green-energy industry simply because of his politics. The billionaire has said he’s fiscally conservative and socially liberal. When he announced plans to build in Texas, Conservatives were quick to point out the failed fiscal policies of California are what drove him to move. Now, Biden won’t even acknowledge him.
Do you think Biden is mad about Musk’s political beliefs?
