I am not understanding Trump's intentions of revising the fuel economy standards and autonomous vehicle standards. The electric vehicle is good for the environment and economy. We know through recent studies electric vehicles will not affect the oil companies at all if even ever. How does Trump think revising or abolishing these standards will help or stabilize the American economy. In fact I believe it will hamper it. First many of the electric vehicles have their assembly lines in the United States - job creation for American people. Secondly, the fuel economy standards are part of a much larger picture. The cost to any major revision or abolishment's would be ridiculous. Thirdly, the ongoing investment the has already been made and will continue to be made in regards to electric vehicles and the standards targets has bolstered this segment of the economy greatly. Let us not forget private business is all about making as much money as it can. If private companies are not compelled to make changes and bring forth innovations based on government mandated targets they never will - it costs them too much money. Finally, a quote from Trump made in a speech to industry workers " I will review the fuel-economy rules and other regulations to protect and defend your jobs and factories. WTH!!! Without the fuel standards and other regulations there would be no electric vehicle jobs and factories!!!
