Yet there are no representatives of American workers on the council.


Trump has established the National Council on the American Worker to “Ensure all Americans can benefit from the nation’s historic economic boom and record low employment rates.” Yet there are no representatives of American workers on the council.
Still worse, IBM puts out advertisements on its own corporate website saying that Americans need not apply for jobs in the United States. Yet the CEO of IBM is on Trump’s Council for American workers — talk about letting the fox guard the chicken coop.
Who is advising Trump here?
Trump routinely meets with CEOs demanding more cheap foreign labor. Yet President Trump still has not met with American workers on that issue — you know, the folks who got him elected.
