National AFL-CIO Plans To Launch Ad Blitz Against Trump This Week With ‘Storm’ Of Digital Attack Ads

Published Sunday, March 13, 2016

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) - The Nation’s Largest Federation of Labor Unions plans on targeting GOP Presidential front-runner Donald Trump this week with a storm of digital attack ads, a new report says.  The National AFL-CIO, which represents 12.5 million Workers across 56 Unions, will fire its salvos against Trump on Facebook and Twitter, according to Reuters.

 “Donald Trump has tapped into the ‘very real and understandable anger’ of Working People,” National AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said. "But while he says he’s ‘with’ America’s Working People, when you ‘look close, it’s just hot air.’  Donald Trump is ‘nothing but a house of cards’ and once we educate people, the ‘house of cards comes crashing down.’”

The National AFL-CIO will reportedly target Trump’s rhetoric as racist and his business policies as Anti-Worker.

“Donald Trump’s bigoted comments are ‘bad enough,’” Trumka will say in the spots. "Now he supports Right-To-Work.  Tell him ‘Right-To-Work is wrong’ for Working People.”

Reuters reported late last week that the National AFL-CIO opposes Trump’s position on Right-To-Work Laws, which limits Organized Labor’s ability to collect Member dues.

Several states have passed such legislation, it added, and Congress has considered modeling federal policy on the concept.

Reports emerged last month that National AFL-CIO was refraining from an endorsement in either political parties’ presidential primary, which keeps it out of the heated Democratic nominating contest between front-runner Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
