Ryan Beene Bloomberg Published 10:30 AM EDT Aug 21, 2019 President Donald Trump lashed out at “politically correct” automobile manufacturers who’ve pushed back on his administration’s plan to weaken fuel-efficiency requirements. “My proposal to the politically correct Automobile Companies would lower the average price of a car to consumers by more than $3000, while at the same time making the cars substantially safer,” Trump said in a Tweet Wednesday. “Engines would run smoother. Very little impact on the environment! Foolish executives!” Four automakers including Ford Motor Co. and BMW AG last month reached a compromise with California’s clean-air regulator to boost the fuel efficiency of autos sold in the U.S through 2026, defying the Trump administration’s plan.
