Democrats Are LOSING Union Support To Trump, “The Far Left” Is NOT Working Class. Trump recently fired back at the head of the AFL CIO over criticism on the new trade agreement with Mexico and Canadao called the USMCA. Trump claimed that in private the union leader was grateful but once the cameras turned on he changed his tune.
But the important issue here is not that they are feuding but that the unions are considering Trump at all. Democrats have typically received the overwhelming majority of Union support. But Hillary Clinton saw the narrowest margin of support from union families in decades.
Far left activists, Democratic Socialists, Communists, all claim to represent labor and the working class but they also tend to be privileged and educated. Of course many union members are educated and many socialists are working class, but the people we hear from most tend not to be actual workers.
Dave Chappelle said Trump was playing “poor whites greatest hits” and as long as the Democrats ignore this they will continue to lose union support.
But the other major issue here is that Unions are on the decline, especially in swing states. In the end, even if republicans and Trump don’t see union support, the Democrats are still losing a major support base. It can only end as good news for conservatives and the president.
