I frickin love Biden! A Corvette?

But if the other political characters want to "support the economy" buy an American car! And I don't even want to hear that they aren't competitive. They probably just heard that from bias people (ahem nancy grace ahem), and they probably haven't driven an American car in 20 years. There are plenty of American cars worth buying.

The unfortunate thing is that even though their assigned to "fixing" the American automotive landscape, they're still just regular brainwashed people who think that the only quality vehicle comes from an Asian or European manufacturer.

i'm so glad the detroit news is bringing this to light. i hope someone "throws them in the hot grease" for that and makes them answer for why they aren't supporting America!

Not a lot of US brands in that list. Not a good sign.

Biden's Corvette was a gift, he didn't buy it himself. His father owns a car dealership and gave it to him.

But still. At least he didn't trade it for a Camry or something.
