Michael Moore said that he thinks Democrats are headed for another big loss this November over supporting things like changes to Dodd-Frank.

“Both Senators from Michigan voted to kill most of the Dodd-Frank regulations on the banks. Shame on them. Do Democrats plan to lose [again] in November?” the 64-year-old filmmaker captioned his post on Instagram Friday.

“Do they have any clue why over 100 million voters plan to stay home? It’s shit like this,” he added, along with a photo showing the “16 Democrats Who Voted To Rollback Regulations On The Banks.”

On Thursday, President Donald Trump signed the bipartisan bill that changes rules of the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 for certain banks, exempting dozens of them from strict federal oversight. It was not the full repeal and replace Trump has promised, but he declared that it was the first step to eliminating the Obama-era regulations.

“We’ve kept a lot of promises,” the president explained. “This is truly a great day for Americans and a great day for workers and small businesses across the nation.”

Moore has been very outspoken against President Donald Trump since long before he won the White House. The filmmaker, however, was a lone voice before the 2016 election and predicted that Trump would win based on the way the country was feeling at the time.

In August last year, he predicted Trump will also win re-election in 2020.

“I should say re-appointed, because we will have an even larger population that will vote against him in 2020,” Moore explained in an interview published by Fast Company. “But he will win those electoral states as it stands now. Here’s the good news: We don’t have to convince a single Trump voter to vote differently because we already have the majority.”
