Articles like this are why Democrat politicians should be wary of continuing to push the Trump Derangement Syndrome on their constituents:
“This is a group that I know well,” Trump said referring to the union bosses, adding “we’re going to put a lot of people back to work” and “stop the ridiculous trade deals.”
When Trump said the administration “just officially terminated TPP,” it prompted applause from the labor chiefs (and this time it certainly wasn’t by paid members of the studio audience), who later described their meeting with Trump as “incredible.”
But even more notable, was the dramatic pivot by the US labor unions, historically stalwart democrat supporters, who have suddenly emerged as big supporters of Trump policies, and perhaps no one more so than AFL-CIO President Rich Trumka who said TPP withdrawal is “a good first step toward building trade policies that benefit workers.”
As a reminder, nearly all major unions endorsed Trump’s rival, Hillary Clinton, during the presidential election campaign: they now appear to be shifting their allegiance.
Doesn’t matter if the President calls themselves a Democrat or a Republican. All that matters is that they genuinely want to improve America and that they’re not an ideologue.
Trump is the first President in decades that actually wants to improve this country in decades and he’s not an ideologue, he’s a problem solver. All that matters to him is the end result.
