Green stood up to the president during a CNN segment that aired following the closing of an Ohio General Motors plant. During that segment, Green singled out the Republican Party’s 2017 tax law which he claimed encouraged GM to leave the area.

“I just wanted him to understand that… the regulations on books aren’t really helping working people, it’s not helping companies that actually employ people,” the auto worker added.

Green then pointed out that Trump ran on the promise to bring jobs back to Ohio.

Trump blamed the UAW in Ohio for the plant’s closing, tweeting:
