President Trump Rips Labor Union Leader a New One on Labor Day

Published

on

On Monday, President Trump criticized American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) President Richard Trumka the day after the Big Labor leader attacked Trump’s trade deal in a Fox News interview.

Trump tweeted on Labor Day that Trumka didn’t share the same criticism of his trade deal when “he is with me at the White House.”

Trump tweeted, “Just watched AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on @FoxNews and thought to myself how different he is on TV than he is when he is with me at the White House. Likes what we are doing until the cameras go on.” The president lashed out at the AFL-CIO chief after he said that unions were not prepared to support Trump’s “unenforceable” replacement for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Trump specifically said on Twitter, “We got robbed on Trade and everything else while his Dems just sat back and watched. NAFTA is the worst Trade Deal ever made – terrible for labor – and Richard let it stand. No wonder unions are losing so much. The workers will vote for me in 2020 (lowest unemployment, most jobs ever), and should stop paying exorbitant $Dues, not worth it!”

Trumka declared on Sunday that the proposed United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement is “An unenforceable trade deal” which is also a “windfall for corporations and a disaster for workers.”

He then criticized Trump’s dealings with China, saying that confronting China “has to be a multilateral approach. … One country can’t take on China.”

Trump claims that Trumka is a reason why unions are performing “poorly.”

The president may be on to something when talking about unions.

Today’s unions are merely political shock troops for the Left. They violate the freedom of association of millions of workers nationwide through the use of forced union dues and provide political support for corrupt incumbents in Washington D.C.

This Labor Day represents a unique opportunity for President Trump to use his bully pulpit and throw support behind the National Right to Work Act which would liberate millions of workers from paying mandatory union dues as a condition of employment.

U.S. Intelligence Reports that China Hid the Extent of the Wuhan Virus Outbreak

Published

on

According to a Bloomberg report, China has not been forthcoming about the extent of the Wuhan Virus in its country.

It has apparently, under-reported “both total cases and deaths it’s suffered from the disease, the U.S. intelligence community concluded in a classified report to the White House, according to three U.S. officials.”

The officials requested to stay anonymous because the report is confidential and declined to give further details about its contents. The main takeaway though is “that China’s public reporting on cases and deaths is intentionally incomplete. Two of the officials said the report concludes that China’s numbers are fake.”

The White House received this report last week, according to one of the aforementioned officials.

The pandemic originated in China’s Hubei province in late 2019, but the country has officially reported only about 82,000 cases and 3,300 deaths, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University. America, on the other hand, has 189,000 cases and more than 4,000 deaths which is allegedly the largest publicly and reported outbreak in the world.

“The reality is that we could have been better off if China had been more forthcoming,” Vice President Mike Pence said on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 on CNN. “What appears evident now is that long before the world learned in December that China was dealing with this, and maybe as much as a month earlier than that, that the outbreak was real in China.”

China imposed one of the strictest lockdowns of all nations afflicted by this pandemic. However, the Chinese government has not been transparent about its recording strategies and is constantly changing its methods for recording cases.

Republicans have been skeptical of the numbers coming out of Beijing.

“The claim that the United States has more coronavirus deaths than China is false,” declared Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse. “Without commenting on any classified information, this much is painfully obvious: The Chinese Communist Party has lied, is lying, and will continue to lie about coronavirus to protect the regime.”

U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has called on China to be transparent about their outbreaks.

“This data set matters,” he said during a news conference in Washington on March 31, 2020. The development of medical treatments and public-health measures to combat the virus “so that we can save lives depends on the ability to have confidence and information about what has actually transpired,” he asserted.

The Wuhan Virus pandemic illustrates the pitfalls of globalism and global integration at all costs.

When authoritarian regimes like China are treated like equals on the international stage in terms of trade and migration, Western countries could be susceptible to demographic displacement, national security breaches, viral outbreaks, and corporate espionage.

This sage may be the wake-up call the West needs in trying to socially distance itself from China.
