VIDEO: Trump calls electric semis a ‘disaster’ for the trucking industry

Published:

In a recent interview for Meet the Press, former President Donald Trump weighs in on the impact of the push for electric vehicles within the trucking industry.

In seventy-eight minute interview, Trump touches on a variety of topics, including the 2020 election, the war in Ukraine, and more.

As part of the interview, Trump mentioned electric vehicles and soon turned to the topic of electric trucks. Trump pointed out that the current technology is impractical for truckers on a tight deadline.

What they’re doing with our trucking industry is a disaster because they want all electric trucks and a truck with a large tank large gasoline or diesel capacity can go up to 2000 miles and electric truck goes 300 miles, so what are these guys going to do? They’re going to stop every 300 miles and recharge their truck and spend three hours?” Trump said.
