WATCH: Trump-backing steelworker admits GOP tax cuts have only benefited his ‘assh*le’ boss so far

Published

on

Erich Collins, an Iraq War veteran and current steelworker, supported President Donald Trump in 2016 — but he now fears that the president’s signature tax cut is only going to people at the top.

In an interview with Vice News, Collins says that he and his fellow steelworkers are getting “sh*t on” by their employer.

He then went on to say that he hopes the president has noticed that many of the steelworkers who backed him in 2016 don’t think that their companies are doing a good job of helping out their employees, despite a spike in industry profits that have occurred since Trump slapped tariffs on foreign steel.

“Hopefully it caught his attention and I hope he would be listening to the workers,” he said.

Collins was then asked what he would want Trump to do to show support for steelworkers in their dispute with their bosses.

“I’d like to have him have a sit down with the CEO and tell him to stop being an assh*le,” he said. “And this isn’t what I gave the tax breaks for, so guys like only him can benefit and reap from what we sow.”

Collins also said that he would be “extremely disappointed” if the president sided with “corporate greed” if the workers chose to go on strike.

Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.

Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.

Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!

Published

Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.

Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."

"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.

"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.

She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
