Normally critical of the President, union bosses go out of their way to show “solidarity” with Donald Trump’s tariffs.
Following President Donald Trump’s announcement of 25% tariffs on imported steel and 10% tariffs on aluminum, praise for his actions came from unlikely sources—labor union bosses.
On Thursday, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka tweeted, “People may not like how Pres Trump rolled these out, but I applaud him for trying.”
Going one step farther, James P. Hoffa, President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters wrote a letter to President Trump commending the Trump Administration for taking actions.
“This is the way trade should work,” Hoffa, a former Republican, wrote.
