Union leader, not Trump, is winner of Twitter clash

Kate Bronfenbrenner, director of labor education research at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations is expert in labor policy and union strategies. She says Trump’s recent Tweets to United Steelworkers 1999 President Chuck Jones come across as bullying an individual voter.

Bronfenbrenner says: 

“This exchange puts Trump in a peculiar position rather than the union.

“It is one thing for Trump to go after politicians and celebrities, such as Alec Baldwin who criticize him, but for him to take on a local union president, comes across as bullying an individual voter. The one coming out of this looking presidential is the union president, not Trump.”
