Not content to attack the Carrier Union Rep, trump then slams the Union! (UPDATE)

3 hours ago, on his Twitter account, Trump said:
"Chuck Jones, who is President of United Steelworkers 1999, has done a terrible job representing workers. No wonder companies flee country!"

because Jones called Trump out for lying about his (Trump) role in Carrier deal.

An hour later, Trump tweets this:
" If United Steelworkers 1999 was any good, they would have kept those jobs in Indiana. Spend more time working-less time talking.
Reduce dues".

first time I knew that a union was responsible for making a company stay in America.

Carrier union boss gets threatening calls after Trump's tweets

The Carrier union boss who criticized Donald Trump is receiving threatening phone calls, he told MSNBC late Wednesday.

Chuck Jones, president of United Steelworkers local 1999, which represents workers at Indianapolis's Carrier manufacturing plant, said Trump "lied his ass off" about terms of a deal to keep jobs in the state.

After Trump blasted Jones in a tweet, Jones received calls from people threatening to come for him and asking what kind of car he drives, he told MSNBC, according to the Associated Press.

"Nothing that says they're gonna kill me, but, you know, you better keep your eye on your kids," Jones said.

Firefighters in brawl over who goes first into burning house

HYATTSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Two Maryland firefighters have been accused of assaulting a female firefighter from another station during a fight over which unit should go first inside a burning home.
Volunteer firefighters Jeffry Miller and Chris Kelly were indicted Tuesday on multiple charges including second-degree assault and interfering with a firefighter in the performance of their duties, Prince George's County State's Attorney Angela Alsobrooks said in a statement.

A unit of firefighters arrived first at the Hyattsville blaze last December, but Kelly, who wasn't in full gear, blocked the door, preventing them from entering, Alsobrooks said.

Kelly hit the female firefighter, knocking her off the porch, Alsobrooks said. The woman tried entering again, but officials said Miller grabbed her and pulled her away.http://bigstory.ap.org/article/dcf79ff5279640b1bc139882e50f56cf/firefighter-brawl-2-accused-blocking-other-maryland-crew

US Secret Service being advertised as 'new amenity' in apartment sales at Trump Tower

The U.S. Secret Service is the hot, new "amenity" in the Trump Tower, where desperate brokers are trying to lure well-heeled clients into the building on Fifth Avenue that has served as President-elect Donald Trump’s home as well as his campaign and transition headquarters.

Less than a week after Trump was elected, prominent New York real estate agency Douglas Elliman blasted out an e-mail with the subject: “Fifth Avenue Buyers Interested in Secret Service Protection?” to advertise a $2.1 million, 1,052-square-foot condo in the tower on 721 Fifth Avenue.

"The New Aminity – The United States Secret Service," screamed the flier sent in an e-mail on Nov. 13 for a one-bedroom apartment on the 31st floor, represented by brokers Ariel Sassoon and Devin Leahy.

As hard as Trump works to distance himself from his businesses, there may be no way of getting around other business associates using his brand for their own opportunity.

the article explains that most of the building are condos owned by private parties, and this newest advert is not from Trump himself.
