President Donald Trump met with leaders of the automotive industry prior to speaking Wednesday at the American Center for Mobility in Ypsilanti, Mich.
“We’re going to remove one job-killing regulation after another,” Trump said. “We’re far from being finished. We’ve signed many executive orders reducing regulations. We are far from finished. We think we can get rid of about 75 percent of the regulations, in many cases, and have more security for the worker, for the environment, and in safety.”
In attendance was Gov. Rick Snyder, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt and U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao.
From the automotive industry, Trump met with Mary Barra of General Motors, Sergio Marchionne of FCA, Mark Fields of Ford, W. Gerald Flannery of Hyundai, Dietmar Exler of Mercedes-Benz, Lex Kerssemakers of Volvo, James Lentz of Toyota, Jose Munoz of Nissan, Rick Schostek of Honda, Michael Sprague of Kia, and David Geanacopoulos of Volkswagen.
In attendance from the UAW was President Dennis Williams and Vice President Cindy Estrada.
