Powerful union leader dead at 72

President Joe Biden offered words of condolences on Thursday at the death of AFL-CIO Union President Richard Trumka at the age of 72.

“He was more than head of the AFL-CFO, he was a good, close, personal, friend,” Biden said from the White House, according to Breitbart News.

“At least he was with people who adored him,” Biden added.

Trumka had long served as a union leader and had met with Biden as recently as February in support of his infrastructure plan.

Several political leaders, especially Democrats who had been closely connected with Trumka, expressed their condolences across social media.

Connecticut Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal said,

The loss of the leader will lead to new changes in union leadership that will certainly impact Democrats plans. The AFL-CIO loss also underscored the many connections with Democratic leaders.
