Labor chief calls Walker a ‘national disgrace’

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka offered a six-word statement on Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s bid for the White House.

“Scott Walker is a national disgrace,” Trumka said in the statement.

{mosads}Walker is the GOP candidate organized labor may hate the most. He pressed for legislation after his election as governor to weaken public sector unions in Wisconsin, which led labor to seek to recall him. 

Walker took to Twitter on Monday to offically announce his bid for presidency.

“I’m in,” Walker tweeted. “I’m running for president because Americans deserve a leader who will fight and win for them.”
