The Latest: Trump slams AFL-CIO for endorsing Clinton
Republican Donald Trump is slamming AFL-CIO leadership for its decision to endorse his likely rival, Democrat Hillary Clinton.
The likely GOP nominee in a lengthy statement accuses the AFL-CIO of selling out its members by endorsing a candidate he alleges is "the enemy of working people."
He says, "The leadership of the AFL-CIO has made clear that it no longer represents American workers."
Trump goes on to predict the union's members will wind up voting for him in much larger numbers than Clinton in November, despite their union's endorsement.
He adds that Clinton's ties to Wall Street means she "is the enemy of working people." Trump vows to "fight harder for American workers than anyone ever has."
