Zero chance. Priority is to create jobs and eliminate regulations that strangle jobs like EPA CO2 regulations. Trump has stated he wants to be known for his environmentalism and high priority is clean air.
Uh huh. Care to place a modest wager? I'll bet you $50 that the subsidy gets killed before the Bolt is actually available for lease in New York.
BTW, it would fall under the rubric of "eliminate regulations that strangle jobs" in a Republican administration. Even if you believe that Trump is going to somehow keep almost all of the campaign promises he has made, you have to realize that he has to give the Right something that is easy to deliver but will resonate with their worldview and reinforce their support of him.
He is definitely a maverick. He will be fighting/negotiating with the right, like everyone else, sooner or later. Reference the 60 minute interview were he said he said things to get elected. He has been quoted a few times where he said the war on drugs was very stupid and he would legalize them. A very leftist view.http://www.ontheissues.org/Drugs.htm
Legalize drugs and use tax revenue to fund drug education. (Apr 2011)
Eliminating government subsidies for those awful elitist electric cars would be both easy and cheap, and it would be hugely popular among truck/SUV driving white men.
The rich like their tax cuts. I wouldn't be surprised if he increases it to $10K for 100 kWh battery.
