According to recent reports, The Teamster Union, one of the largest and most influential worker’s unions, has just refused to endorse either candidate. This is big news for the organization, who has always shown support for the Democratic Party.
Now, new reports indicate that many leaders are leaning towards voting for Trump. With 1.4 active members located in Canada and the United States, this support could be enough to swing the election.
Antonio Caraccilio, a member of the union, has created a Facebook page called “Teamsters United for Donald J. Trump.” The group was designed to give Teamsters a place to discuss their support of the GOP presidential nominee.
“We all like Trump,” Carccilio told reporters, adding that many members do not support the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal.
“We went out and we went against those trade agreements,” he commented. “We need to stop the free trade because it’s hurting our country. Basically, this is why Trump is more appealing to me, close the borders…work on the currency manipulation and the trade deficits.”
Cariccilio also discussed fears that Americans will lose jobs in a Clinton presidency because companies will continue moving to different regions.
“Hillary Clinton talks about jobs, but the trade agreements caused Ford to be able to move to Mexico,” he commented.
