He appeared at both the Chrysler Group LLC’s Jefferson North Assembly plant and General Motors Co.’s Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Plant, and received a rapturous welcome from workers, including one or two hugs.

He stated: "Don't bet against the American worker. Don't bet against the American people," Obama said, eliciting cheers from an estimated 1,500 workers at the Chrysler factory. "You are proving the naysayers wrong."
