how do i remove or pivot this piece



how can i adjust this or move it? i grabbed it with channel locks and i couldnt budge it. Maybe was I not trying hard enough and it should just unscrew? This is under my sink and is the part connected to the wall after the ptrap.
Thanks everyone for your help

Pictures so small it's hard to see what it is.
But it looks like an ABS drain line that's glued in place. Only way to adjust it is cut it and use a coupling.

Looks like a trap adapter and that would be glued.

Ok so I think it is glued on because it wont budge. Can someone show me a picture of what to replace it with because the pipe will be coming straight at it now instead of from an angle?

Also where should i cut it at?

Find yourself this tool

Cut through the pipe in front of the glued hub of the 45

Then Cut the hub of the 45 3 to 4 times without cutting the pipe that is in the hub.
Use a flat blade screw driver and a hammer and pry the old hub off the pipe.

Then replace it with a female trap adapter abs

glue it on with abs glue

Thank you everyone and specifically Ghostmaker for that very detailed step by step. It was 100% on the money. Ended up only needing to cut it once on the top and then with a flathead I could pry the rest off. Win for my saturday and my first DIY plumbing job. Leak free!
