Trump Makes Second Worst Vice Presidential Pick in History

Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on Donald Trump’s selection of Mike Pence for his Vice Presidential running mate:

Congratulations to Donald Trump on the second worst Vice Presidential pick in history.

Everything Donald Trump says shows he is desperate to be working people’s friend, but everything Donald Trump does proves he is our enemy. This decision proves that he does not stand with working families. Mike Pence might be the right choice for Donald Trump, but he’s the wrong choice for America.

We need leaders who will bring us together, not tear us apart. Mike Pence once again proves Donald Trump’s true priority of assaulting the rights of working people and helping corporate CEO’s line their pockets.
