I am really surprised this hasn't gotten more attention in the media. Well, it has, but people are talking about it as part of the trump vs GM fight. Nobody is talking about it as a direct threat to Tesla's very existence, which it is. Anyway, trump is angry with GM for closing manufacturing plants and causing trump to break his campaign promise that no plants anywhere would ever close under his presidency. https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2018/11/trump-general-motors-subsidies-threat Anyway, if trump ends the Electric Vehicle (EV) subsidy, that could very well push Tesla over the edge. Tesla is doing better, but their finances are still a little but shaky, and ending the subsidy would be a really BIG blow. That subsidy is what keeps them even remotely competitive with gasoline-powered cars.
