    They have tons of bells and whistles now, but the biggest thing is that people are willing to pay for them. They have high profit margins and truck owners are extremely brand loyal.

    Your article said:

    It's more complicated than bubba or pedro getting another 3MPG, in fact some of its consumer demand apparently. I remember hearing this Trump talking point regarding why the auto sector didn't respond to the trade war as Trump implied. At least the farmers have been getting their extra socialist bailouts, meanwhile the gubmit gets to pick manufacturer winners and losers with exemptions under Comrade Trump.

    Smart. I imagine Trump will try and sound more progressive going into 2020, much like he co opted it in 2016.

    Or like how Boris Johnson in the U.K. took a much more progressive stance during the snap election after being the austerity party. The establishment is on full effect here.
