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.

Unlike other sports leagues, the UFC has uniquely positioned itself by not adopting the woke antics of leagues such as the NFL and NBA.
Masvidal is a veteran of MMA promotions such as Strikeforce, Bellator, and the UFC. He is currently fighting under the UFC banner and holds a record of 35-14. According to MMA website Sherdog, he is currently ranked in 4th place . Similarly, he is ranked in 4th place according to the UFC’s rankings.
The Welterweight fighter currently owns the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, after he knocked out Ben Askren with a flying knee five seconds into the first round. Additionally, Masvidal won the “BMF” championship against Nate Diaz in 2019 after he battered Diaz and forced a technical knockout via doctor stoppage.
Masvidal fought current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman on less than a week’s notice for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 251, after he replaced the original challenger Gilbert Burns, who tested positive for the Wuhan virus. Before the fight took place, Masvidal signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. Masvidal ended up losing the fight via unanimous decision.
Nevertheless, the card reportedly netted 1.3 million pay-per-view buys in America.
