Union Workers Backing Donald Trump? SEIU Head Says Republican Appeals To Working Class Members
Democrats, Leftists, Marxists, White Liberals (pick your title) are now shitting a brick… as recent polls among the white working class and even the typical Union member, show that they are now backing Trump at an incredible rate!
One of the nation’s most influential labor unions says that it’s revving up its fight against Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump to keep him out of the White House. Mary Kay Henry, president of the Service Employees International Union, said she has directed her 2.1 million members to help defeat the business mogul who has won over many working-class voters.
In an interview with David Axelrod on his podcast “The Axe Files,” out Thursday, Henry said her organization is going into “hyperdrive” because Trump appeals to some of her members because of the “terrible anxiety” some people in the working class feel. “This is a very dangerous political moment in our country,” she said. “I think he’s touching this vein of the terrible anxiety that working-class people feel about their current status, but more importantly, how terrified they are for their kids not being able to do as well as they have, never mind doing better.”
Henry said she was working to persuade union members that Trump would not represent their best interests. “We’re doing one-on-ones with every one of our members right now in this period, because 64 percent of our public members identify as conservative and are much more interested in the Republican debate than the Democratic debate at this moment,” she said, according to Politico.
