President Donald Trump on Monday took aim at "dues crazy union leadership" and former Vice President Joe Biden for failing to "do the job" during his time in office, The Hill reports.
Trump slammed Biden, who recently announced his campaign for the Democratic nomination, and the media for "pushing" him "hard," and criticized Biden and former President Barack Obama.
President Trump tweeted:
"The Media (Fake News) is pushing Sleepy Joe hard. Funny, I'm only here because of Biden & Obama. They didn't do the job and now you have Trump, who is getting it done – big time!"
Trump added later:
"Sleepy Joe Biden is having his first rally in the Great State of Pennsylvania. He obviously doesn't know that Pennsylvania is having one of the best economic years in its history, with lowest unemployment EVER, a now thriving Steel Industry (that was dead) & great future!"
The president also called out "dues crazy union leadership" who "rip-off their membership with ridiculously high dues, medical, and other expenses" and back Democrats, after the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) endorsed Biden Monday morning, ahead of his campaign's first rally, in Pittsburgh.
"I'll never get the support of Dues Crazy union leadership, those people who rip-off their membership with ridiculously high dues, medical and other expenses while being paid a fortune. But the members love Trump. They look at our record economy, tax & reg cuts, military etc. WIN!"
Biden later responded:
"I'm sick of this President badmouthing unions. Labor built the middle class in this country. Minimum wage, overtime pay, the 40-hour week: they exist for all of us because unions fought for those rights. We need a President who honors them and their work."
