Not surprisingly, the far-left radicals in the AFL-CIO has endorsed presumptive Democrat nominee and corrupt liar Hillary Clinton for the presidency.
AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka, who in the past pled the fifth to avoid incriminating himself in a money-laundering scheme linked to prominent Democrats, praised Hillary in a statement saying, “Hillary Clinton is a proven leader who shares our values. Throughout the campaign, she has demonstrated a strong commitment to the issues that matter to working people, and our members have taken notice. The activism of working people has already been a major force in this election and is now poised to elect Hillary Clinton and move America forward.”
It didn’t take Donald Trump, a former Hillary Clinton donor, long to respond to the endorsement of Hillary Clinton with a statement in true Trump fashion. In short, he attacked Hillary’s ties to Wall Street and said, despite the endorsement, he believes actual AFL-CIO union members will vote for him.
“Sadly with this endorsement of Hillary Clinton — who is totally owned by Wall Street — the leadership of the AFL-CIO has made clear that it no longer represents American workers. Instead they have become part of the rigged system in Washington, D.C. that benefits only the insiders. I believe their members will be voting for me in much larger numbers than for her.”
Trump also attacked Hillary’s open borders immigration stance as proof that she does not care about the plight of American workers.
“On immigration, Hillary Clinton sides with Wall Street too. Bernie Sanders correctly warned that open borders ‘would substantially lower wages in this country,’ and yet Hillary has put forward a plan that would completely open America’s borders in her first 100 days in office.”
In addition to saying that Clinton’s policies and beliefs will be harmful to poor minority communities, Trump noted the cozy relationship that Hillary Clinton has with countries that murder homosexuals and enslave women as a sign of her hypocrisy.
“union workers have long believed in having an open and free society” while adding that Clinton “takes money from regimes that support the murder of gays and the enslavement of women while pushing to bring people into America who want to do the exact same thing to our people. I only want to bring people into our country who will love and support everyone.”
Shockingly, Trump did not say much about the endorsement on his typical favorite social media megaphone of choice, Twitter. He only tweeted something to hit Hillary on trade.
The trade deficit rose to a 7yr high thanks to horrible trade policies Clinton supports. I will fix it fast- JOBS! https://t.co/jaGeN4u50U

Will Trump go after “corrupt Hillary” as hard as he did “Lyin’ Ted, “Little Marco,” and “Low Energy Jeb?” That remains to be seen.
