Type: Lashes out at PeopleSep 03 2018 Severity: Targeted: Richard Trumka
Trump began his Labor Day with an attack on a top union leader. He said Richard Trumka represented his union poorly on TV over the weekend. The tweet came after Trumka appeared on Fox News Sunday, and said that the efforts to overhaul the North American Free Trade Agreement should include Canada. He also criticized Trump by saying "the things he's done to hurt the workers out-pace what he's done to help the workers." Trump then fired back in his tweet putting the reason why he thought the unions are doing so poorly is because Trumka is a democrat.
