President Donald Trump just got praise from Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO, the largest federation of unions in the United States, for his withdraw from the TPP and his promise to re-negotiate NAFTA, the worst job killing law ever passed. Mr. Trumka made the following statement:
Last year, a powerful coalition of labor, environmental, consumer, public health and allied groups came together to stop the TPP. Today's announcement that the US is withdrawing from TPP and seeking a reopening of NAFTA is an important first step toward a trade policy that works for working people. While these are necessary actions, they aren’t enough. They are just the first in a series of necessary policy changes required to build a fair and just global economy. We will continue our relentless campaign to create new trade and economic rules that end special privileges for foreign investors and Big Pharma, protect our planet’s precious natural resources and ensure fair pay, safe conditions and a voice in the workplace for all workers.While the millionaire bosses of most unions threw their undying support behind Hitlery Roddamn Clinton, Trump spoke directly to the workers who have lost their jobs, seen their wages decline, and have been forgotten by the global elite.
Trump has worked with union labour his entire life. He's a rich man, but he grew up on construction sites. He knows the privations we the people have to face, while 80 people control half the wealth in the entire world. Trump is the champion of the workers. He is the great proletarian revolution, and he's giving this country, and all the lost jobs, back to the people.
