President-elect Donald Trump spoke at Carrier Corporation on Thursday, December 1, in Indianapolis. The fallout from that meeting is still being felt online — especially after Trump turned to Twitter to criticize Chuck Jones, the President of United Steelworkers 1999. Trump’s words about Jones have already brought threatening phone calls to Chuck, according to the Washington Post. The publication notes that it took only 30 minutes after Trump published the following words on Twitter for Chuck’s phone to begin ringing, with some folks asking Jones what kind of car he drove, and another person issuing an ominous threat — with the anonymous individual saying they were coming for Jones.
“We’re coming for you.”
On Wednesday, December 7, Trump published the following words to his Twitter account about Jones.
“Chuck Jones, who is President of United Steelworkers 1999, has done a terrible job representing workers. No wonder companies flee country! If United Steelworkers 1999 was any good, they would have kept those jobs in Indiana. Spend more time working-less time talking. Reduce dues.”
