Why did Biden ignore Tesla so Tesla fans reacted?
According to the petitioners, the reason that drives the White House to ignore Tesla is that it is a non-union company. UnlikeFord and General Motors.
“The White House and the Biden Administration have intentionally been trying to ignore Tesla’s hard work while propping up GM and others as ‘EV Leaders,'”. “This is an insult to the Americans who work for Tesla.” the petition says

Previously, Biden met with business leaders including the CEOs of Ford and GM, but Tesla’s CEO wasn’t there. The White House tweeted from the meeting lauding “companies like GM and Ford” for “building more electric vehicles here at home than ever before,” Musk responded by saying “Biden is a damp sock puppet in human form,” and used the sock emoji.
A secret White House official credited Tesla for helping to drive the auto industry to electrification. And emphasized on President Biden aims to create union jobs and supports the rights of workers. In another hand, Musk was honest about his anti-union views.
Based on numbers, Tesla is the most significant US producer of electric cars.
It delivered nearly 936,172 vehicles across the world in 2021. According to a Bloomberg analysis, Tesla’s California factory is the most productive auto plant in North America.
We can’t ignore the increased efforts of GM and Ford in the EV industry during recent years, but they still have a long way to catch up with Tesla’s production capacity.
