Senator Harris takes aim at Trump antitrust probe of automakers over emissions
U.S. Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris on Friday asked a government watchdog to look into the Trump administration’s decision to launch an antitrust probe into four automakers cooperating with California on tighter greenhouse gas emissions limits that Trump is trying to eliminate.
She asked the Justice Department’s inspector general to investigate the antitrust division’s decision to probe Ford Motor Co, Honda Motor Co, BMW AG, and Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE). In July the carmakers said they had reached a deal with California to adopt tougher emissions standards than the Trump administration’s 2018 proposal.
