"Why won't you backtrack on billions of investment anticipating inevitable regulation that I postponed until 2020!!" https://www.cnbc.com/2019/08/22/trump-attacks-ford-motor-for-not-backing-fuel-economy-rollback.html Trump attacks Ford Motor for not backing fuel economy rollback U.S. President Donald Trump stepped up a series of attacks on automakers on Wednesday for not backing his administration’s plan to roll back Obama-era fuel efficiency rules. Trump singled out Ford Motor in particular for backing a deal with California for stricter fuel economy standards. Ford said in a statement that it is focused on acting to protect the environment while also protecting the affordability of vehicles. “This agreement with California provides regulatory stability while reducing CO2 more than complying with two different standards,” it said.
