President Obama visited the North American Detroit Auto Show on Wednesday, where his focus was on the resurgence of the city's auto industry.

He spent about a half hour at the auto show and later addressed a crowd at the UAW G.M. Center.

The president talked about how the $85 billion auto bail out helped save Michigan's auto industry.

President Obama gave a lot of the credit to the people in the industry.

"And I placed my bet on you. And after visiting auto plants across the Midwest and seeing what you have done first hand. I'd make that same bet any day of the week. Because today, factories are humming, business is booming and the American auto industry is all the way back!"

This was the president's 17th trip to Michigan since he took office.
