Trump Makes Brief Campaign Appearance In Ohio On Labor Day
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's visit to the Canfield Fair in Mahoning County Monday was truncated. But his presence drew comments from AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. M.L. Schultze of member station WKSU in Kent reports.
The Canfield Fair already drew international attention this week after the Mahoning County Republicans hit on a fundraising idea: Building a wall… with people paying $5 to insert their own wooden “bricks.” Volunteer Mike Young says he’s heard nothing but support.
“These boards are about 5 foot by 8 foot and we’re on our third one. We ran out last night and Sonny here went home and I think 6 o’clock this morning cut out the blocks to make another one, there’s just been so much support for it.” :12
Young says Republicans object to illegal immigration, not immigrants in general. He’s not sure what should be done with those already here, but says Trump will figure it out.
A different picture of the GOP nominee was painted nearby, where union president Trumka portrayed Trump’s business history has one of overseas manufacturing and stiffing American workers.
“Donald Trump cares about one thing. Donald Trump. He’s built a business model that’s all about ripping people off instead of lifting them up.” :11
The subject of all that debate, Trump, made about a 15-second speech over a bullhorn.
