Trump Attacks Carrier Union Leader On Twitter


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Trump recently took to Twitter to respond to a union rep who said he lied during the Carrier deal. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"President-elect Donald Trump snapped at a union president who represents some Carrier employees Wednesday after the union boss suggested Trump was not truthful about the number of jobs that would be saved in the president-elect's deal with the Indianapolis heating and air-conditioning manufacturer.

"Chuck Jones, who is President of United Steelworkers 1999, has done a terrible job representing workers," Trump said in a tweet. "No wonder companies flee country!"

The president-elect followed up with another tweet accusing union leaders of not doing enough to save the jobs that were threatened.

"If United Steelworkers 1999 was any good, they would have kept those jobs in Indiana," Trump wrote. "Spend more time working-less time talking. Reduce dues."

Trump's spat with Jones began after the president-elect involved himself with Carrier's plans to move jobs from its Indianapolis plant to Mexico.

Trump touted his actions as integral in helping save what workers believed to be about 1,100 jobs. Carrier actually decided to keep only about 800 jobs and to outsource about 550 to Mexico, said Jones, who suggested that the 1,100 number Trump mentioned when he announced the deal last week may have included 300 jobs that were never among those in line to leave the US.

"But he got up there and, for whatever reason, lied his a– off," Jones told The Washington Post.

In addition to the jobs lost at the Indiana plant, Carrier's parent company, United Technologies, still plans to relocate its Huntington, Indiana, plantto Mexico, putting another 700 jobs on the chopping block. In total, an estimated 1,300 Carrier employees will still lose their jobs.

In an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett on Wednesday, Jones said he was grateful for Trump's intervention in Indianapolis but continued to criticize Trump for his characterization of the number of jobs that were saved.

"I just wish that he would have had the numbers down and he had been upfront with 800 people's jobs staying here in Indianapolis," Jones said.”*

    Why are so many white supremacists single? Is that the reason they’ve
    become white supremacists. I know white men are often intimidated by black
    men because usually they’re taller and faster. A lot of white men seem
    fragile to me. When you tell them what they said was racist, they have a

      How is attacking union workers trying to protect american jobs from being
      outsourced not attacking the people? These are the demographics he appealed
      to at the election. Now he’s attacking them because they won’t go along
      with his bullshit.

    I’m going to be honest. Trump supporters I think its time we put away our

    shaming on voting choice. We really don’t need America failing because of
    this idiot.

      Most aren’t worried about our nation. They are busy working and hanging out
      with diverse friends and family. The crybabies on the internet are a very
      small minority out of the 137million who voted. 😉 but hey, since I’m here
      I can tell you things will be great!! It is hard to find a positive
      statistic under Obama, so things are looking up now!

      , immigrant reform that help the American economy also what’s so bad about
      diversity and what’s worse the crybabies are uneducated morons who open
      there mouth to say things that surprise me if there was nothing positive
      about any president they would be impeached also if you think Obama made
      the country worse don’t forget when your handed something that is unstable
      you try your best to keep it stable

    Grats, Americans. You’ve got your own version of Philippines’ president
    Rodrigo Duterte. We’ve gone from the clownish insults like ‘crooked
    Hillary’ or ‘lying Ted’ of only a few months ago, to a guy who’s now in the
    position not only to command the US armed forces, but an army of trolls,
    goons and mentally-ill supporters and direct them to harass whomever he
    pleases via Twitter. And he doesn’t even need to be specific and get his
    hands dirty, because as long as he selects a target, the idiots will do the

      Mark my words. Trump’s new defense minister is going to make veiled threats
      to other countries about using nukes when they don’t get their way. The
      concept of “Mutually assured self destruction” completely alludes them.

    And white Americans really voted for that accused orange rapist/pedophile.
    Man, what’s wrong with Americans?

      -The orange rapist/child molester has 6 filed complaints for rape and
      pedophilia filed by 3 different women in 1990, 1992, 2006 and 2016.

      +Mirquella Santos Its less an issue of race and more an issue of social
      standing and the political platform on which he ran.
      Its the same as if i blamed all drugs and cartels on every Hispanic i met.
      You’re essentially saying things in the same spirit as Donald which makes
      you no better than him.
      Be part of the solution not the problem mate.

    • Posted by Mirquella Santos, at Reply

      SorrowTillSunlight: But whites did voted for the orange rapist/pedophile.
      I’m not lying. Why should whites be offended over something they created
      and supported?

    • Posted by SorrowTillSunlight, at Reply

      +Mirquella Santos The issue is saying it was whites. It was a subset of
      people where race was a factor but not the only factor in this situation.
      Once again if i blamed every Chinese person i met for Mao i’d be no better
      than donald and you by doing exactly that are no better than he is.

    Claims to be working on behalf of carrier’s people. Fights with the union

    Those jobs are not coming back. The economic science is no different now
    than it was when trump was elected.

    I’m not even going to gloat in these peoples’ faces like they did to the
    left when trump won. I’m starting to see the right as sort of a
    special-needs class that needs to be approached with medication or therapy.

    • Posted by Elevendy, at Reply

      Creepy PastÆtr hopefully most will come to their senses but it’s a vicious
      cycle and the right is getting more and more extreme. Reason doesn’t work
      and you’re right. We have to approach them specially. I’m not sure how that
      will be yet.

    • Posted by Creepy PastÆtr, at Reply

      +Elevendy I think we’ve just evolved to think in binaries and the right
      exploits that fact. You give people two terrible choices and they pick the
      one that seems the best at face value. I think the neocons got shut down in
      the most recent election for a more bizarre and vicious group. I think
      it’ll get worse for these people before it gets better.
