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.
Florida Senator Moving to Designate “Donald J. Trump Highway” in Honor of 45th President
One of the greatest presidents in American history.
Florida State Senator Anthony Sabatini will move to rename a highway in the state “Donald J. Trump Highway,” in honor of the 45th President.
Sabatini made the announcement in a tweet on Tuesday. US 27 ultimately travels from Miami, Florida, to Fort Wayne, Indiana, traversing the United States from south to north. The segment located in Florida would be renamed after Trump in Sabatini’s proposal.
This legislative session I will be sponsoring an amendment to rename U.S. Highway 27 as the “President Donald J. Trump Highway.” Looking forward to working on this important designation honoring one of the greatest Presidents in American History. pic.twitter.com/x2gNzv8pxv

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.
Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.
President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
