What would you say if I told you The Teamsters may back a GOP candidate for president and not Hillary?
I’m nuts, right? … Wrong. The fact is, Trump has negotiated, hired and probably partied with more Teamsters than Hillary has ever dreamed of.
Say what you want about Trump, but he is shaking the trees, baby…
In a stunning move, the Teamsters Union wants to meet with Donald Trump before endorsing Hillary Clinton for president. The move is uncharacteristic of the Teamsters Union, which has historically endorsed Democrat Party nominees.
The union backs up their endorsements with millions of dollars of contributions to Democrats each year. In 2014, their budget for Democrats, Democrat Pacs, and Democrat candidates exceeded 3.6 million dollars.
The largest recipient of their political contributions is the Senate Majority PAC, whose purpose statement reads “Senate Majority PAC is fighting to take back the Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate.”
Trump is running for the Republican Party nomination for president, so the decision of the executive board of the Teamsters Union to reach out to Trump before endorsing Clinton has many questioning their motives.
Trump has declared that he will unite the American people and “make America great again.” While the Teamsters Union is still deciding who they will endorse for president, from all appearances, and from their own statements, they’re considering Trump.
“FOX News has learned exclusively the 26 member board decided unanimously to withhold a presidential endorsement… Union executives told me they want to sit down with Republican candidates, most notably, front-runner Donald Trump who has collaborated with unionized work forces across his real estate career.
