National and World

(WKBN / CBS News) – Congressman Tim Ryan appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday morning to discuss his focus on making progress, unifying as a country and his presidential run.

The appearance came the day after his campaign rally in Youngstown.

During the segment, Ryan said his focus will be to create an industrial policy in the U.S.

“We are getting our clocks cleaned by China right now when it comes to electric vehicles, when it comes to solar panels, when it comes to additive manufacturing. These are areas that are growing significantly and for electric vehicles, there’s two million electric vehicle cars now. There’s going to be 30 million in 2030,” Ryan said during the appearance. 

Ryan said he wants those electric cars to be made in the midwest. 

He told moderator Margaret Brennan that he will do that by creating long-term strategies and working to invest in distressed communities. 

According to CBS News, Ryan said any help for the Rust Belt economically would come from a balanced private partnership, not relying too much on government bureaucracy.
