Posted on 09/03/2018 8:15:28 AM PDT by Olog-hai
President Donald Trump started his Labor Day with an attack on a top union leader, lashing out after criticism from AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.
Trump tweeted Monday that Trumka represented his union poorly on television this weekend. He added: it is easy to see why unions are doing so poorly. A Dem! [ ]
Asked about the low unemployment rate and economic growth, Trumka said those are good, but wages have been down since the first of the year. Gas prices have been up since the first of the year. So, overall, workers arent doing as well.
On Monday, Trump touted the economy, saying Our country is doing better than ever before with unemployment setting record lows. He added, The Worker in America is doing better than ever before. Celebrate Labor Day!

Hey Unions — if you are concerned about American worker’s wages why do you support illegal alien workers?
Trumka was an ungrateful idiot. He was more concerned about Canadian workers than American workers.
This is why presstitutes have such a Bad name and nobody believes or trusts them, the title should be along the lines of:
Trump fights back against Union Boss attack.
Union Boss attacks Trump, Trump fights back
Richard Trumka = LOSING FOR 15 Years and counting.
Dont change a thing Communist AFL-CIO.
Note Trump didn’t attack unions just the corrupt boss who leads the fraud Democrats care against its membership.
Life for union workers is better under Trump and the members know it.
Hitting back at Trumpka was perfectly executed.
Union extortion does not sell well anymore.....
there fixed it...
Every time Trump says something about someone the headline is “Trump Attacks”. But Everytime someone criticizes Trump the headline is “Trump gets slammed by......” That’s what fake news is it is not just the content but is the connotation as well.
Therein lies the problem — the corrupt leadership.
As Rush is often to say, the unions are nothing more than a money laundering operation for the Dems.
I would love to see President Trump make the connection. Do union members actually want to indirectly pay for abortion and illegals?
Trumka is the worst POS to head up the AFL-CIO in that confederation’s history.
He’s the enemy of the American worker. He supports illegal alien amnesty and job theft? Who the hell ever heard of a union guy pushing that crap?
“Trump defends himself 24 hours after criticism from Union leader.”
This is why the concept of “Fake News” resonates with people.
You can bet the Coal and Auto unions endorsed Hillary and would put their workers on the unemployment lines.
The union brass only care about themselves and their democrat partners. They both sacrificed the American worker for their liberal globalist agenda. They are all in a panic right now because president Trump is making inroads with black voters and union voters. Those are two groups the liberals cannot stand to lose.
It isn't the title so much as it is that Trump apparently should've waited until after Labor Day to respond to Trumka, as if this day is holy or something.
Trumka got his start with the United Mine Workers and said jack nothing when Obama decimated the industry.
He has no credibility. Just another dem stooge.
Like the jojo biden “take ‘em out behind the gym” kind of attack? ;-)
Trump apparently should’ve waited until after Labor Day to respond to Trumka,
If that was the case the media would have excoriated Trumka for bashing Trump on Labor Day Weekend, but instead they ENCOURAGED him to engage in false and anti American rhetoric in what can only be described as an Illegal In Kind Campaign Contribution to the Democrat Party..
