Biden surprises GM’s Barra by using a Chevy Bolt in viral tweet


General Motors, often a target for former President Donald Trump to go after on Twitter, is finding the opposite to be true under President Joe Biden. 

In August of last year, Biden spilled the beans about GM’s plans for a future all-electric Corvette, creating social media buzz across Twitter.

Well, he’s done it again.

In this frame capture from a White House video, Gina McCarthy, national climate advisor, driving and Jennifer Granholm, secretary of energy, take a ride in a Chevrolet Bolt as they participated in a video promoting the infrastructure bill.

On Thursday, Biden tweeted a 4-minute video featuring former Michigan governor and now Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm and White House Climate Adviser Gina McCarthy riding in a Chevrolet Bolt EV, talking about the benefits of EVs and touting Biden’s proposed infrastructure plan known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework.

The Bolt’s appearance was not product placement, in fact, GM executives were “surprised” by it, said Jeannine Ginivan, GM’s manager of public policy communications.
