Chad Day and Eric Tucker Associated Press Published 9:05 PM EDT Mar 22, 2019 Washington — Donald Trump was in full deflection mode.

Thunderbirds and things. These are classically appreciated cars. The Gremlin was a thrown-together economy car that wasn’t economical, often considered one of the ugliest cars of all time.
