President Joe Biden touted his administration’s economic plan and support for electric vehicle production during a visit to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit today.

Republicans, including Upper Peninsula Congressman Jack Bergman, slammed the President’s handling of the economy.

“President Biden has turned a recovery into a recession.” said Bergman.
