Michael Reagan said Donald Trump's tweets are "far and above" a more effective communication tool than the national media, defending the president-elect's biting attack of a Carrier steelworkers union boss.

In an interview Thursday with "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth on Newsmax TV, Reagan, a political commentator and the son of the late President Ronald Reagan, called United Steelworkers 1999 President Chuck Jones's assertion "silly" that Trump lied about the number of jobs saved at an Indiana plant

"My father was the 'great communicator'," Reagan said. "The fact is [Trump] has found a way to communicate way far . . .  above where the national media truly is," he said, conceding he's been critical of Trump in the past for "saying in his tweets [what] he didn't need to be saying."

"Here he really needed to answer" Jones's attempt at "defaming" Trump "by saying it's not 1,000 jobs or whatever — it's 800" jobs that were saved, Reagan added.

"It was really silly for the union leader to go after Donald Trump in that way knowing that Donald Trump would basically hand him his lunch when [he] in fact tweeted to his 25 million followers."

"I think he's done a great job," he added.

Reagan said he recalled fights his father waged when he was president of the Screen Actors Guild in Hollywood.

"[I] remember he had to come home with a gun at night to protect our family, my mother, my sister, myself because he was worried about the thugs within that union taking him down," Reagan said.
