AAF Applauds Ford for Pausing EV Battery Production

September 26, 2023

Advancing American Freedom released the following statement after Ford announced its pause of construction of an electric vehicle battery plant involving a Chinese electric vehicle battery company.

“There is no such thing as a private company under the authoritarian rule of the Chinese Communist Party, and American companies should seriously assess their business ties as a result. Ford is protecting American national security by pausing construction and should be commended for putting American interests first,” said AAF Executive Director Paul Teller. “Republicans in Congress need to continue their oversight of Biden’s green agenda, which too often ties the American economy with China’s and hurts the American worker — but benefits the CCP.”
