Richard Trumka, the president of the AFL-CIO, issued a brief but harsh statement on Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) losing his reelection bid.

“Scott Walker was a national disgrace,” Trumka’s entire statement read.

The comment was almost identical to Trumka’s statement after Walker formally entered the 2016 presidential race.

{mosads}“Scott Walker is a national disgrace,” Trumka said at the time.

He invoked the brief attack again after Walker dropped his White House bid.

Walker, a fierce opponent of unions in Wisconsin throughout his two terms in office, was defeated by Democrat Tony Evers, the state superintendent of public instruction.
