I hear DT is negotiating building a new Steam Locomotive manufacturing plant in the Midwest, that will promote the further use of coal.
He's also lifting the use of long guns from open windows on trains as they traverse bison herd pastures in Yellowstone.

Least educated and lowest per capita incomes are shaded in red.

Still doesn't change the what Tesla is doing.

Rev is sore already and trump has only stuck the tip in....

No, I let your wife put on whatever she feels like wearing. Yes, that was tacky.

Tesla is insolvent. They are searching for capital, any capital, any where, any how, but they need it damn soon. Else they be done gone busted and out. So in their desperation they'll bend for any "friend" and suck at any proturbance they can find. This China talk is just them letting everyone know they're ready and willing, up for whatever it is some John (or Wang or Dong) will ask (as long as they get to suck some capital out of him).

P.S. Did any of you hear about the tent they erected to cover their outdoor production line? Incredible. Did any of you get told about how they decided to not bother with 300 welds in each car? What about them not bothering to do the roll, brake and alignment tests any more?

Qalitie at hitz bestest. Damn fine crap it is.

What a mess.

I don't know what the U.S. is gonna do without Harley and tesla?

Looks like we'll have to learn to live without slow old heavy antiquated motor cycles and boring electric cars that take two years to make

Oh well, how much of a hit to the GDP will this be?

On a side note, wonder what the enviro natzis think about Teslas getting recharged in China by all those coal fired power plants. Kind of ironic that the whole point of the electric car is to reduce pollution

Yeah, the US didn't want those manufacturing jobs anyway....or any of the others that haven't made the news. Sounds like sour grapes or a profound misunderstanding about manufacturing and trade...or both.

As for recharging with coal, the really funny thing is that China's decision to transition off coal is the main thing helping US coal. They have also decided that people needing to wear surgical masks on the city streets because the air is so dirty is not ok so a couple years ago they slapped production limits of Chinese mines to force prices up and reduce domestic demand and it's worked pretty well for them, but it also increased global prices which has helped the US coal industry a bit.
