    Chuck Jones is a local union leader at one of the Carrier plants. He called Trump out for misleading people over how many Carrier jobs would be saved because some jobs will still be going to Mexico. He also praised Trump for the jobs that were saved so it wasn't all bashing. Jones was on CNN tonight. Right after his interview finished Trump tweets the following:

    So basically we're going to have 4 years of a President obsessed with cable news, firing off a tweet every time someone hurts his feelings or says or does something that punctures his thin skin. Except as President he'll have a lot more than Twitter at his disposal to intimidate people into shutting up or doing what he wants. I don't know how anyone can defend this. And shouldn't he have more important things to do than watch CNN and punch down on Twitter?

    Are we going to have to endure four years of trump demonstrating time and time again what an ass he is?

    Yes. Yes we are.

    Whoever Trump appoints as press secretary should probably change his (Trump's) twitter password.

    It's not whining to point out the truth. Whining would be 8 years of he's not our president, we won't work with him, he hates this country, etc.

    If we can survive 8 years of whining, you can survive 4!

    Just wait until he starts screwing sh** up and not keeping promises. That's when the fun begins!

    :D

    Would be nice if you would get yourselves acquainted with the truth once in a while!

    Why the heck Trump is wasting time on unions with the private sector, I have no idea. He should be focused on teacher's unions, police unions, federal and state government unions. These public sector unions are parasitic at best.

    The truth? You don't think Trump should grow up and stop being a baby, crying on twitter every time someone dares to disagree with him? He's still crying about SNL!

    I couldn't believe he threatened to cancel the contract with Boeing because the cost of planes were too high. This guy is just nuts. Everyone gets a trophy. Boo hoo he tweeted something.

    Naw. Cons don't dare touch police unions. They need someone to protect the haves from the have-nots.

    The truth is Trump is a thin skinned narcissist with a massive ego. You would think he would have more important things to do than watch CNN and send out tweets.

    Smoke and mirrors. Trump's weapon. To answer your question - yes - he will always tweet this type of crap as long as it distracts people from the truth.

    Also Trump should pay all of his contractors he shafted before criticizing others. And he should also not buy steel from places he shouldn't and then yell at the union leader.

    How can anyone defend the guy tweeting his opinions? It's shocking. Truly outrageous.

    Conservatives whined for 8 years so I think it is fair game.

    Rich people would do fine with no police since they can pay for their own protection.
    Poor people would be screwed. They are already blighted by crime even with police around.

    Trump the King of butthurt. Skin thinner than a militant regressive leftist, how rich.

    Beg to differ.

    He started backtracking on promises mere days after winning the election.

    His supporters didn't care.

    Not really, it's politics as normal now. As a supporter, it's nice to see changes in the direction that he promised and why we chose him. Republicans have felt abandoned for a long time, even by their own party. The tweets, the thank you tour, that's just a bonus because we know what it does to the liberals.
