Donald Trump is continuing to make his very bad Labor Day even worse. Piling on to what has already been a terrible morning and afternoon, the president has just made the fatal mistake of attacking one of America’s top labor leaders, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. This comes after Trump lied about how great American workers were now that he was POTUS, and after he mysteriously sent the press corps home with no explanation earlier today.

Trump was bitter because Trumka had gone on Fox News to educate Americans about how Trump had hurt American workers rather than help them. Despite unemployment being down, Trumka stated that wages were also lower while gas prices were higher. Trumka said, “Overall, workers aren’t doing as well.” The labor leader also slammed Trump for putting workers at risk for doing away with many health and safety regulations that were supposed to protect them.

In reaction to being critiqued, Trump flew off the handle and attacked Trumka:


Richard Trumka, the head of the AFL-CIO, represented his union poorly on television this weekend. Some of the things he said were so against the working men and women of our country, and the success of the U.S. itself, that it is easy to see why unions are doing so poorly. A Dem!”

Trump immediately learned that he should have kept his mouth shut. Not only did he misspell his first tweet, but the president also got blasted by droves of Twitter users.

Americans hit back at Trump, putting him back in his place and reminding him just why 60 percent of Americans disapprove of him:

Labor Day 2018 will be a day Trump wishes he could forget.
