Looks like President Donald Trump moves another piece on the political game board.
This time, he’s taking aim at wining over the Teamsters Union.
I’m sure he’ll get their support easily.
A vote for Trump is a no-brainer.

Former President Donald Trump met with the Teamsters Union on Wednesday in an attempt to slice into one of President Joe Biden’s previous lines of support.
Trump attended a meeting with Teamsters President Sean O’Brien, Secretary-Treasurer Fred Zuckerman, the union’s executive board and other members at a roundtable at the group’s headquarters in Washington.
“We had a very strong meeting with the Teamsters,” Trump told reporters, saying he thinks there is a “good shot” that he gets their endorsement.
“Usually a Republican wouldn’t get that endorsement,” Trump said while arguing that he was in a stronger position than other Republicans and that the union “never had … a better four years than they had during the Trump administration.”
The union endorsed Biden, who was also invited to participate in a Teamsters rank-and-file roundtable Wednesday, in the 2020 election.
Biden “looks forward to meeting with the Teamsters and earning their endorsement” in this year’s election, a Biden campaign official said. It was not clear whether he would meet with the group Wednesday.
The Biden campaign’s rapid response director, Ammar Moussa, also blasted Trump in a statement Wednesday, suggesting he “pretends to be pro-worker then sides with management and does nothing while factories close and jobs are lost.”
“Trump’s long record of attacking unions and shipping jobs overseas while lining the pockets of his rich buddies speaks for itself,” Moussa said. “While Trump spends his time attacking unions, President Biden is working every day to secure historic wins for labor and deliver for American workers.”
The Teamsters said the roundtable would be an opportunity for candidates to discuss how the next president and the group “can work together to empower and protect workers, promote high labor standards and strengthen the American economy while expanding the middle class.”
Of course here come the lying clowns, throwing more slurs at Trump.
