Teamsters Union snubs Hillary Clinton, wants to meet with Donald Trump

September 29, 2015

hillary Earlier today Hillary Clinton made what I believe was a blatant attempt to appease the Democrat’s largest special interest group, the unions, when she came out against the Cadillac healthcare plan tax, you can read about that here.

  However late last week Hillary Clinton finally took a stance on another issue which is near and dear to many unions, the Keystone Pipeline. She has announced that she is against it even though many unions are supportive of the Keystone Pipeline. Could her new position on the Cadillac plans be an attempt to offset her decision on the pipeline? It seems highly likely to me.

  If so it might have failed: it is now being reported that when one of the most powerful unions, the Teamsters Union, sat down to discuss endorsing a candidate they decided UNANIMOUSLY to withhold an endorsement (for Hillary Clinton of course) until Joe Biden announced his intentions and until they talked to Donald Trump, who apparently has a good relationship with the unions. According to the report this was a deliberate snub by the Teamsters toward Hillary Clinton.

  Here is the report:

  Of course when push comes to shove history tells us which side the Teamsters Union will eventually endorse, but at they are sending a message and at least they are making her sweat a little bit. Politics makes for strange bedfellows and stranger things have happened, could Donald Trump actually be the man who wrests the union stronghold away from the Democratic party? I doubt it but one never knows…
