Congressman Tim Ryan Responds to President Trump’s Disparaging GM Lordstown Tweet
Lordstown, Ohio -- Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-13) made the following statement in response to the disparaging remarks President Trump made today regarding GM Lordstown’s Union President Dave Green, UAW Local 1112. Find tweet here.
“Dave Green and the hardworking men and women at GM Lordstown deserve better. They’ve worked tirelessly to build award-winning cars and have dedicated their lives to GM. They are second to none. Since it was announced that GM would close Lordstown, Dave has been working around the clock to help save these jobs, families, and community. He even reached out to President Trump on two occasions asking for help, but no response. The President’s tweet today is offensive and does nothing to help bring back the manufacturing jobs he promised to my district. It’s counterproductive and insulting. We all deserve better,” said Congressman Ryan.
Dave Green was Ryan’s guest to the State of the Union Address this year. Read more here.
