Praise For President Trump Coming From Unlikely Sources–Union Bosses

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.
