President Donald Trump spoke at Willow Run Airport in metro Detroit Wednesday.

His focus was jobs and the auto industry.




In addition to Tuesday night’s tax talk, we know the President will be speaking about the automotive industry.

 At the Willow Run Airport, there’s a lot of work being done on safety technology, but what most expect the president to speak about specifically is a new review of federal auto fuel economy and emissions rules.

For weeks now, the big automakers have been trying to get a review on current rules and regulations.

A review would open the door to lower fuel economy requirements, automakers argue cheap gas makes it hard to sell fuel-efficient vehicles. 

Top automaker executives are expected to be in attendance today.

President Trump is expected to speak at 2:20 p.m.
