President Donald Trump went on another one of his tirades today: this time against labor unions.
“U.S. President Donald Trump on Labor Day hit back at Richard Trumka, president of the United States’ largest federation of labor unions, after Trumka said on Sunday that the president’s policies had hurt American workers.
Trumka, who is head of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), said on Fox News Sunday of Trump’s policies: ‘Unfortunately, to date, the things that he’s done to hurt workers outpace what he’s done to help workers.’
On Monday, which is the national Labor Day holiday, Trump tweeted that Trumka had represented his union ‘poorly.’
Richard Trumka, the head of the AFL-CIO, represented his union poorly on television this weekend. Some of the things he said were so against the working men and women of our country, and the success of the U.S. itself, that it is easy to see why unions are doing so poorly. A Dem!
