Betraying Pro-Worker Facade, 'Vindictive' Trump Attacks Union Leader

After United Steelworkers Local 1999 president Chuck Jones revealed Wednesday that fewer jobs were remaining in Carrier's Indianapolis plant than President-elect Donald Trump had promised, Trump launched into a Twitter tirade against the union leader.
In his tweets, the president-elect did not address his own apparently false statements about the job numbers but instead appeared to blame the union for the decision on the part of United Technologies, Carrier's parent company, to move over 1,000 jobs to Mexico:

Chuck Jones, who is President of United Steelworkers 1999, has done a terrible job representing workers. No wonder companies flee country!
