Donald Trump is the furthest thing from a friend of the working man. He has fooled millions into believing he is but he is really a friend of himself and anything or anyone that can make him richer. He is a con artist, always has been and always will be.
No, President-Elect Donald Trump is not a friend of the working man. Media sources including the New York Times and Time magazine have reported numerous cases in which Trump has maximized his profits by underpaying or refusing to pay small companies that provided his businesses with labor and services. Faced with Trump's high-priced lawyers, these small companies have few options in pursuing payment. This track record puts the lie to Trump's claims to be a champion of the working man.
I don't believe that Mr. Trump has a good understanding of the struggles of the working man. As a billionaire he knows little of the struggles of living paycheck to paycheck. As his family was successful in real estate when he was growing up, it is doubtful that he experienced this in his young life either.
No, President-Elect Donald Trump is not really a friend of the working man. Trump has used working people as pawns to gain power and does not care about them at all. One must only look at his history of withholding payment from people who have worked for his businesses as evidence.
