Statement from New Hampshire AFL-CIO President Glenn Brackett on Today’s Private Donald Trump Event in Manchester
HOOKSETT—New Hampshire AFL-CIO President, Glenn Brackett, released the following statement on Donald Trump’s visit to Manchester scheduled for 3:00 PM at the old Sylvania Facility, located at 655 South Willow Street in Manchester.
“Donald Trump can’t pull the wool over the eyes of hard working Granite Staters as he tours the country touting policies that experts have said would lead to another recession and cost the U.S. millions of jobs,” said Brackett. “His disregard for the success of our economy here at home is no surprise given his track record of outsourcing jobs, hiring foreign workers, and cheering for an economic crisis that cost 25,000 people in our state jobs. Nothing seems to have changed as he still continues to put his own pocketbook over the working men and women or our state. He even celebrated the Brexit outcome that wiped more than $100 billion in value out of Americans’ 401(k) accounts over the course of a day because he thought it could bring more profits to his luxury Scottish golf resort. At best, Trump is a hypocrite who promises to help working men and women while he outsources jobs to benefit his bottom line at the expense of American workers.”
“I would ask all those interested in standing in solidarity with New Hampshire working families to join us at the old Sylvania facility on South Willow Street in Manchester at 12:30 PM today to let Donald Trump know that we won't be fooled by his lies.”
