Joe Biden on the China tariff: On China, he said he would not act immediately to remove the 25% tariffs Trump introduced on roughly half of Chinese exports to the US – or the Phase 1 deal that Trump has with China signed, obliging Beijing to buy an additional $ 200 billion in U.S. goods and services in 2020 and 2021 – to which China has fallen significantly. “I’m not going to take any immediate steps, and that goes for tariffs too,” he said. “I will not interfere with my options.” He would like to begin with a full review of the existing deal with China and consult with our traditional allies in Asia and Europe, he said, “so that we can develop a coherent strategy.” Source: New York Times

Some Cadillac dealers are choosing not to invest in the future of electric vehicles: Approximately 150 Cadillac dealerships are choosing to buyouts from General Motors Co. rather than investing thousands in supporting electric vehicles, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday. Cadillac’s 880 U.S. dealerships were told in September that they would need to invest $ 200,000 in transitional dealerships for upcoming electric vehicles. The dealer network had until November 30th to make a decision on whether to buy out. About 17% of Cadillac dealers accepted the takeover bid, the Journal reported on Friday, citing anonymous sources. Cadillac, GM’s flagship electric brand, plans to sell more vehicles that run on electricity than fossil fuels by the end of the decade. Source: The Detroit News
