White House Reporters Stunned After Trump exhibits “odd” and “unusual” Behavior On Labor Day

This is even more strange than his usual behavior.

It’s Labor Day, a day where we celebrate the workers that have built and maintained America’s infrastructure, municipality, and economy. However, it seems like Donald Trump has stumbled into the holiday, instead of celebrating the day with proper form.

Trump started his Labor Day by attacking a major union leader, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. Trump tweeted that Trumka “represented his union poorly on television this weekend.” Trump also associated this perceived lapse in performance to Trumka being a Democrat.

This attack came after Trumka went onto Fox News Sunday, noting that efforts to overhaul the North American Free Trade Agreement should include Canada — right after Trump threatened to move forward without Canada participating. Trumka is head of several unions, and he believes that it is going to be hard to move forward with any sort of NAFTA agreement without having Canada onboard since trading and commerce is so tightly woven between Canada, the United States, and Mexico.

On Saturday, Trump also tweeted that there was no “political necessity” to include Canada. It’s worth noting that Trump’s ability to exclude Canada from a deal is coming under scrutiny, especially since he’s moving forward without the approval of Congress.

Trump’s odd behavior does not end with his erratic tweets. White House reporters were recently at a loss after Trump boarded his motorcade, then turned around and went back into the White House moments later.

It’s being alleged that Trump changed his mind about traveling. Not only that, but he also placed a “lid” — noting that he has no news to share with the reporters, essentially sending them home.

Unions give workers the ability to collaborate and bargain for better wages, working conditioners, and favorable policies. Trump has not taken a liking to collective bargaining, with the administration undermining unions.
