Trump Calls on Unions to Support Him in 2024 as He Addresses Nonunion Auto Plant

HeadlineSep 28, 2023

Instead of going to the debate, Trump headed to Detroit, Michigan, where he spoke at a nonunionized auto parts supplier. Trump’s visit came a day after President Biden made history by joining striking autoworkers on the picket line. During a rally on Wednesday, Trump called for unions to support him in 2024.

Donald Trump: “Do me a favor: Just get your union guys, your leaders, to endorse me, OK? And I’ll take care of the rest.

UAW President Shawn Fain refused to meet with Trump during his trip to Detroit. Fain said, “I see no point in meeting with him because I don’t think the man has any bit of care about what our workers stand for, what the working class stands for. He serves a billionaire class, and that’s what’s wrong with this country.”
