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.

UPDATE: Dec. 8, am.

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 [sic] – 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.

Alabama man loses job for calling Gatlinburg fire victims 'toothless, pond scum' Trump supporters

An Alabama man who referred to residents of Gatlinburg as "mouth-breathing, toothless, Trump-suckin' pond scum" in the wake of last week's deadly wildfires has lost his job and been targeted by social media users as a possible suspect in the blaze.

On Nov. 29, Coleman Bonner of Wessington in Chilton County posted a message to his personal Facebook page in regards to the wildfires in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevier County, Tennessee.
"Funny story. I was recently in Gatlinburg. Had a terrible time. I felt the place was a cesspool of consumerism and a bastion of the worst aspect of southern culture. Turns out a wildfire just burned most of the town to the ground. Good riddance, Gatlinburg. And good luck you mouth-breathing, toothless, diabetic, cousin-humpin,' mountain-dew chugging, moon-pie-munchin,' pall-mall smoking,', Trump-suckin' pond scum. (Chuckles and smiles like the smarmy liberal elitist I am," Bonner wrote.

The post came just days after as many as 14,000 people were evacuated from Gatlinburg and the surrounding area after a wildfire on the Great Smoky Mountain National Park's Chimneys Top 2 Trail spread into the tourist town. As many as 17,000 acres have burned, 1,700 structures have been damaged or destroyed and 14 people have died as a result of the blaze.

Shortly after his post, Bonner's employer, Express Oil Change and Tire Engineers, began receiving messages about the statements.
Express Oil Change said after "fully and thoroughly" investigating the situation, Coleman is no longer employed with the Birmingham-based company.


Oh jeez...now he is acting like The Godfather and threatening "retribution"

using a running series of Tweets, he sez

but any business that leaves our country for another country,.........then thinks it will sell its product back into the U.S. ........
without retribution or consequence, is WRONG!

Tweets can be found here: at the 12 hour time stamp about 6 Tweets down...

and said this bluster re: china:
Did China ask us if it was OK to devalue their currency (making it hard for our companies to compete), heavily tax our products going into
their country (the U.S. doesn't tax them) or to build a massive military complex in the middle of the South China Sea? I don't think so!

The supposedly next Pres. of USA is tweeting his foreign policy and thumbing his nose at China ....on Twitter.
