UAW president says he won't meet with Trump
Driving the news: "I don't think the man has any bit of care about what our workers stand for, what the working class stands for," he told CNN.
- "He serves the billionaire class and that's what's wrong with this country," Fain added.
The big picture: Trump is scheduled to give a prime-time speech Wednesday instead of attending the second Republican primary debate.
- The 2024 GOP front-runner's trip to Michigan is likely a move to get the votes of auto workers as a historic strike plays out.
- Biden spoke briefly before picketing workers, flanked by Fain, who called it "a historic moment."
What they're saying: When asked to comment on Fain's remarks to CNN, a Trump campaign spokesperson said the former president will be in Michigan talking with union workers and ensuring American jobs are protected.
- "He has always been on the side of American workers and will do everything in his power to be their voice as Crooked Joe Biden and Democrats are on the side of our foreign adversaries," he added.
