PITTSBURGH (AP) — Sen. Bernie Sanders is challenging President Donald Trump to deny federal contracts to General Motors until the company reopens shuttered plants.

Sanders spoke in Lordstown, Ohio, where GM has closed a plant, and rallied in Pittsburgh in his first visit of 2019 to the critical battleground state of Pennsylvania.
Sanders says Trump’s “biggest lie was that he was going to stand up for working families and take on the establishment.”
