Trump jabs union head over NAFTA remarks

AFP

US President Donald Trump took a crack yesterday at the head of the nation’s largest federation of labor unions on the US Labor Day holiday after the workers’ advocate criticized his threat to exclude Canada from a new NAFTA deal, reports AFP from Washington.

Speaking Sunday on Fox News, AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka said it was “pretty hard to see” how Trump’s efforts to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement would work “without having Canada in the deal.”

“We’ve been aggressively pursuing an agreement that works for the workers in all three countries and I can say we’re not done yet,” Trumka told the Fox network, a favorite among Trump’s base.

The US president—who said last week there’s “no political necessity” for Canada to remain in the trade pact—responded to Trumka with a jab on the final day of America’s three-day holiday weekend celebrating the worker.
