Trump says he will ‘never’ let the ‘zimmer car’ die in the U.S.
President Donald Trump said he would “never let the zimmer car” die in America, and he reiterated his call for all automakers to put safety first in the face of rising car safety risks.
Trump on Monday said the nation should be “really proud” of automakers for making the “zimmer” car the “most popular car in the world.”
He also pledged to “do everything in my power” to help the auto industry recover from the crisis.
The president, who is seeking re-election in 2020, has made the car one of his signature issues, citing its success in the United States, which he said has seen its own auto safety woes.
On Tuesday, Trump also said he’s “totally fine” with the deaths of three people on the Zimmer.
Trump told the ABC-host, Martha Raddatz, that he would like to see the auto manufacturers do more to prevent vehicle fatalities, but he “really likes” that “they are putting more of an emphasis on safety.”
He said he “would have liked” the automaker to make more vehicles with seats that are designed to help people sleep and would like the company to “look at the Zimmers” safety features and make it better.
“We can’t do anything if it doesn’t look good,” he said.
The automaker has been under fire for not doing enough to prevent the deaths.
