Obama: Free trade agreements will boost US auto industry
In southeast Michigan today, President Obama said free trade agreements passed this week by Congress will lead to more jobs and more economic opportunities.
Obama and South Korean president Lee Myung-bak toured GM’s Orion assembly plant. Obama says the new South Korea trade agreement should boost U.S. auto sales in Asia.
"Well you know, if Americans can buy Kias and Hyundai’s from Korea…then I know Koreans should be able to buy some Fords and Chryslers and Chevys…that are made right here in the United States of America," Obama said, drawing hearty cheers from an audience of auto workers.
President Obama shared the stage with the new Chevrolet Sonic, a subcompact designed in South Korea.
