President Trump talks auto jobs in Michigan

EPA tyranny NO MORE: Trump promises end to destructive regulations in Detroit

EPA tyranny NO MORE: Trump promises end to destructive regulations in Detroit

"We're going to bring a lot of jobs back to MI and OH and Pennsylvania", Trump said at the roundtable.

The Obama standards for vehicles manufactured between 2022 and 2025 were originally adopted in 2012 with a promise to automakers that a review before April 2018 would assess whether they could realistically meet the goal. If the EPA determines they are not appropriate, the agency will submit a new proposal next year.

"We are going to cancel that executive action", he said in a speech at the American Center for Mobility, an automotive research and development facility outside Detroit.

At the meeting today, Trump said that he is open to relaxing the fuel consumption restrictions if it shows that they could make more "great cars" and "save jobs".

California and a some states have adopted more stringent clean auto rules than the federal government.

Former EPA officials and environmental groups have decried the reversal, pointing out that carmakers had previously complained about fuel efficiency standards only to easily meet the requirements due to the evolution of technology.

Meanwhile environmental and consumer advocates have said they want a "place at the table" in what may be an intense struggle between ideologically and politically divided factions. "If that continues, we'll have to recalibrate" the fuel economy rules.

"The Trump Administration has created an opportunity for decision-makers to reach a thoughtful and coordinated outcome predicated on the best and most current data".

Trump has been critical of the auto industry and threatened to impose high tariffs on the auto industry for cars and parts manufactured in Mexico and imported to the United States, and also has pledged to unravel the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Merkel's visit to White House delayed by DC snowstorm
Talks will include Germany and France's efforts to address Russia's incursion in Ukraine and what role the USA can play. White House officials said Trump's initial opinion of Putin is operative.

Hundreds of protesters also gathered outside the venue to protest Donald Trump's first visit to MI as president.

No more, said President Donald Trump in Ypsilanti Wednesday.

Despite repeated requests, the White House has not provided any evidence to support this claim. Those states wont be directly affected by Wednesdays announcement, although EPA administrator Scott Pruitt has hinted that his agency may separately attempt to challenge those states rules.

The standard should make window-sticker fuel-economy figures over 40 mpg common - the regulation says 54.5 mpg, but that's based on a complicated formula very different from the mileage drivers get on the road.

"Car companies have lobbied Trump for months to roll back clean auto standards, putting profits ahead of the health of people and planet, and this is the result", Greenpeace USA spokesman Charlie Cray answered Wednesday.

"He doesn't really think that President Obama went up and tapped his phone personally", Spicer said.

Trump, who's been accused of climate change skepticism, made his message on the matter simple - if the issue boils down to carbon emissions versus American jobs, he's picking the jobs.

Trump will tour Jackson's home, according to Howard Kittell, president and CEO of the Hermitage mansion. Jackson is one of Mr. Trump's heroes.
