California governor says Trump is 'building the Chinese auto industry' while destroying America's own
California Gov. Jerry Brown accused President Donald Trump Monday of hurting American auto manufacturers by advocating for fewer restrictions on mass polluters in the US. Brown indicated that the Trump administration's effort to boost US coal producers and weaken fuel-economy standards will ultimately help countries like China, where businesses are going all-in on electric vehicles and other clean-energy products. Trump is "building the Chinese auto industry" while destroying America's own, Brown said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.
