Unions slam Biden decision to immediately cancel Keystone XL pipeline

Democrat-led labor unions — for the most part — threw their weight behind then-Democrat nominee Joe Biden in the general election. Now, they’re having major buyer’s remorse.

Leadership of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) — which represents more than 12 million laborers — stabbed Biden in the back in a recent interview, decrying his decision to cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline on “day one” of his presidency.

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka lamented to Axios on Sunday that Biden’s decision “did and will cost us jobs in the process,” though he didn’t retract overall support for Biden’s agenda.

Axios reported that “The Laborers’ International Union of North America said the Keystone decision will cost 1,000 existing union jobs and 10,000 projected construction jobs,” a staggering blow in an already difficult job market.

When asked if he agreed with a statement from The LIU declaring: “We support the president’s campaign to Build Back Better. Killing good union jobs on day 1 with nothing to replace them is not building back better,” Trumka affirmed the condemnation of the move.

Woke leaders of major labor unions are torn between actually supporting the interests of their members and making sure they support the politically correct candidate — but they’re increasingly leaving their members high and dry.

Trumka noted that he had hoped Biden had “learned a lesson” from the backlash after he announced his intention to kill the oil pipeline project. At no point during the lead-up to the November election did Biden indicate that he had reversed his plans to end the crucial job-creator.

Trumka carefully explained that he “thinks” it was a mistake to block further progress on the pipeline, explaining:

I wish he had not done that on the first day because the Labor’s International was right, it did and will cost us jobs in the process. I wish he had paired that more carefully with the thing that he did second by saying, here’s where we are creating jobs, we can do mine reclamation, we can fix leaks, and we can fix seeps, and create hundreds of thousands in doing all of that stuff.

  1. DEMENTIA BIDEN does not give a damn about the workers he cost jobs. Hell he did not even read what the EO said he just signed it to make himself look important. He would not have even understood the ramifications of what he was doing. People just shoved papers in front of him and said sign here. HUSSEIN OBAMA is pulling the strings that animate DEMENTIA JOE.!

    1. I COULDN’T AGREE MORE SHADES OF PHONY OBAMA PULLINGS THE DAMN STRINGS CORRUPT BIDEN EVER THE FAITHFUL DOG FOLLOWERS HIS LEAD!!!!CORRUPT BIDEN A VICTIM OF HIS OWN STUPIDITY & IGNORANCE!!!!GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

      1. Impeach this sob, the kenyean is behind bidens face giving the orders, or look at his cabinet prositions he has hired the same obama people for the high posts.!

        TRUMKA thats wat you get for going against Trump. See how many UNION jobs lost on first day Mr. TRUMKA?? DEMAND their jobs back NOW! biden is gonna break this country. he is clueless and with the kenyan wanting to get a hidden third term we will cease to be A FREE AMERICA!

        1. The first time I saw Obama I wondered what he was up to.
          Never trusted him
          before! Now we know he is helping that woman (VP) become President. Senile BIden
          is the scapegoat.
          How cunning and the democrats fell for it.
          Was the scapegoat!

    2. Biden does not give a damn about anyone, probably about himself along with entire family. Totally self-centered sorry excuse for a father.

    3. Uh oh Biden is going to have to add another foot to his fence….. the AFL-CIO don’t mess around. Hey Joe, throw in the towel, I am sure you could seek asylum for your administration in China! GIVE US BACK OUR COUNTRY!

    4. Although sad, it serves them right for supporting the radical moron left!!
      Dirty deals are being made behind our backs!!
      YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW!!!

    5. Dear Ice,
      I’m replying to your comments which I believe are true. As to the stealing of the election by China, I suggest watching Mike Lindell’s video with Mary Fanning and Brannon Howre, which presents absolute proof of the election results as being a fraud. https://mypatriotsnetwork.com/updated/forensic-evidence-shows-proof-of-theft-of-2020-election-in-real-time.
      This video is long, but well listening too if you want to know the truth of how the election was stolen by Biden. He is a TRAITOR, THIEF, LIAR and PLAGIARIZER. He supports Hunter and his family who are Thieves as well.
      Thank God that the truth is out now.

    6. You can now BET, the Unions are FINISHED with the “Democrats” . . . they will be TOTALLY for Trump, in the next election, as it was Trump that GAVE the Unions the job, in the first place ! . . . especially because Biden as pretty much put their jobs . . . “Down the Toilet”! ( At least until Trump is back in office ! )

      1. trumka I hope the AFL-CIO MEMBERSHIP DO TO YOU WHAT CHINA joe biden is doing to AMERICA well you have shown. Who you care about. Your BANK account

    7. They can’t hear you ,they’re unemployed democrats. Thank you Joe. You couldn’t have proven Trumps statement that your policies would put Americans out of work any better if you tried.

  2. I as one of “WE THE PEOPLE” will never let the Republican Party down, especially with Donald Trump as our leader. However, I will NEVER EVER send another “Dollar”, no lets make that another “Penny” to the second most corrupt organization involved in American Politics. From this election forward, I concentrate solely on local elections. The REPUBLICAN PARTY, especially the NRCC, has totally let down “WE THE PEOPLE”, the NRCC and all National Republican office holders should have stood with “WE THE PEOPLE” and our rightfully Elected President Donald Trump. Since the day Donald Trump became the choice of “WE THE PEOPLE” way too many REPUBLICAN office holders failed to live up to their Oath of Office, and failed to adhere to what “WE THE PEOPLE” wanted was to “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN”, but those of you in the Republican Party failed to stand as one for “WE THE PEOPLE”, the American Citizen. Now you who are called the “RHINO’S” because of your arrogance for WE THE PEOPLE, you know those who supposedly elected you to HONOR your OATH of Office, but you have done nothing except strip away our rights, our freedom of Speech, and our Freedom of Religion, by allowing the DEMONCRATS to absolutely STEAL the Election of 2020. Then “DO NOTHING” about it, except to demean the person whom we rightfully and legally ELECTED as President of these United States of America. You know that once proud nation that was the BEACON to all the World. Now you are going to allow the DEMONCRATS to bury that Beacon with a horde of ILLEGALS, and allow the DEMONCRATS to destroy us from within our Government.

    1. BRAVO!! PRESIDENT TRUMP ”DID” WIN! BUT THE SELF CENTERED IGNORANT WHO DIDN’T LIKE HIM BLINDED THEMSELVES TO ALL THE GREAT THINGS HE DID FOR THIS COUNTRY. HARD TO BELIEVE THAT JEAOUSY, SELFISH, IGNORANCE SIDED WITH THE COMMIE/DEMONCRAT. I CAN SEE HOW THE MEDIA, HOLLYWEIRD AND SUCH WOULD SIDE WITH THE DEMONRATS AS THEY’RE JUST UNEDUCATED, IGNORANT PUPPET EGOTISTS NOT INTELLIGENT TO BE THEIR ”OWN” PERSON” AND NOT ABLE TO ”LEAD”. THEY’RE ONLY FOLLOWERS OF THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR OR CANNOT MAKE A DECISION ON THEIR OWN, THEY DON’T HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO ”THINK” FOR THE BETTERMENT OF OUR COUNTRY, THEY CAN ONLY LIVE FOR THEIR SHALLOW, SELF SERVING EXISTENCE.

      1. Very well stated. The Democrats have been full of CRIMINALS for years, filling their pockets while claiming to represent those who voted for them. There are too many ignorant people who believe all the lies they and their paid media tells them.

    2. Very well said. I don’t know what to say anymore I’m just very sad and pissed off and nobody can do anything to fix the stolen election!

      1. Linda, remember that Trump said the “the best is yet to come” & “we’re not done yet”. He saw this coming & has military intelligence on his side via spaceforce. He doesn’t give up.

    3. Well said, they do not listen until it is to late, everything that President Trump accomplished will be destroyed out of spite, they hate him so much they do not care about our country and citizens, it is all about the foreign countries, the illegals, and how they can fill their pockets, they forget the American citizens needs, to fill the needs of those who will vote for them, and fill their pockets, and yes the strings are being pulled by someone else, because Joe is not capable of those decisions, he is in it for what money he and his family and those controlling him can get, we are become a third world country and Trumpka should know better than to think he would keep his word. Hopefully we can retake the country by voting them out, but it is like getting rid of roaches, hopefully we can regain the house and senate with real elected American supporters and the truth will prevail for us.
      GOD BLESS AMERICA!

    4. I agree with everything you said. I would like to say Ted Cruz (Texas) and Josh Hawley (Missouri I think) did side with We The People and are facing fierce blow back.

  3. What they ant watched how Joey has been doing things for 48 yr. Really why did u bit the hand that was feeding u president Trump

  4. That is what happens when you allow a liar and thief, into the what used to be White house, it should be called the black house; for the dark stain on it now and forever. I can never think of it as the house of the people anymore. The political hacks have taken over our government I hope you communist hacks do something better than in the past. In the past the communist dictators put in place like Biden, always fail the people in whatever country it happens in. They will not be happy until they make us a third world country, nothing else works for them

  5. Trump may have hurt your feelings (truth hurts) but this idiot is taking your jobs, your money and your freedom. I shake my head… those who chose not to educate themselves and voted against Trump…those who are easily convinced by the media… those are the people to blame. It’s the haters that just had to follow the trend because they don’t have the capacity to think for themselves. This is not a game…Americans should be very concerned. Please open your eyes and just look outside of the tunnel…. I strongly urge you before it’s too late.

  6. The UNIONS need to COOK in their own OIL, anyone with an OUNCE OF BRAINS should know that DEMS don’t give a damn for the working men and women because THEY DON”T KNOW WHAT WORK IS! ALL THEY KNOW is POWER, BRIBES FROM THE HIGHEST BIDDER, LYING, STEALING, and kicking the AMERICAN VALUES!

    1. The Communist Democratic Party(CDP) doesn’t even care about the people of color , Latinos or Indigenous people only at election time and these people fall for it time and time again and get screwed every time the CDP wins!!!No different from the Union members!

  7. Time magazine broke the story wide open of what the democrats dI’d to get Biden elected, now we should be able to have this fraudulent President thrown out of office.

  8. Really, are the unions that stupid to support a president such as biden (I refuse to capitalize his name)? Because of their stupidity thousands of people have lost their jobs. These unions need to realize lyin biden could care less about job losses. He only cares about himself. Wake up!

  9. Biden’s plan put America last is his slogan he is a sick man Americans made a bad choice.Thoser who voted biden now will go under

  10. Biden will never be my president because he is a communist. At leased The German people loved Hitler Americans hate Biden

  11. I wouldn’t call this the Union stabbing Biden. I would say that Biden stabbed them in the back by putting the green groups ahead of all americans. We were all stabbed in the back by Biden.

  12. OBAAMA IS A DANGEROUS IDIOT AND A LEOPARD CAN’T CHANGE HIS SPOTS ALL HE TOUCHED WAS A DISASTER THAT A REAL PRESIDENT HAD TO FIX AND THEN ANOTHER BUFFOON PUPPET CAME IN AND LIKE A BULL IN A CHINA CLOSET!! THANK THE LORD HE IS STILL IN CHARGE WHEN THE DUST SETTLES AND IT WILL ALL THINGS WORK FOR JEHOVAHS PURPOSE.

  13. All you democrats that voted for him will soon pay a BIG price
    Watch what happens to gas and energy prices. All you stupid people will get what you deserve !!!! You wanted him, you got him. America will be a mess very soon !!!!

  14. It’s funny how China Joe gets stabbed in the back he is too stupid to realize 90% of the country hates his guts He’s a thieving lying worthless drooling idiot

  15. A third world government terrorist take over.
    1. Rule by executive order
    2. Putting a predecessor on trial.
    3. Censorship of opposition.
    4. Attacking the private sector.
    5. Exploiting identity politics.
    6. Challenging judicial independence.
    7. Purging former officials
    8. Encouraging a slavish media.
    9. Military in the streets.
    I am terrified.

  16. Biden and His Handlers, whoever they might be (Susan Rice, obama, soros, Harris et al) are determined to have the United States of America become a secondary nation without clout of any kind. All they want to do is send our hard earned tax payer money over seas and anywhere but here. He is beholden to the union but cannot make wise decisions as he cannot think or speak without the teleprompter. He has provided a way for China to access our Power Grids…go figure that one out. He does not have We The People’s best interest at heart. His only concern is staying in bed with China, restarting a relationship with Iran–thanks to the ketchup man in his personal plane. He does not care about America!

  17. When are these crazy Unions going to learn? THE RAT PARTY IS LOOKING OUT FOR THEMSELF. Will say and do what ever is needed to get elected. Then break their promises LIE LIKE HECK THEY CAN NOT BE TRUSTED !

  18. Impeach them all. It’s time to demand a new fair election. If we let them continue on this road of destruction we will all end up ruined and lose everything. We the American people can’t let this path continue. Someone needs to grow a pair and start impeaching biden, Pelosi and Harris. Then after they are out we need to re elect the true winner Donald Trump.

  19. You are all right and I agree. It’s time to kick Biden , Harris and Pelosi to China.! Just get rid of them any way we can.

  20. Fire the PIANO player from the orchestra! PIANO= President in Anonymous Name Only as he is seemingly working for somebody else.

  21. When dementia Joe has the 25 Amendment action executed against him every Executive Order he signed should be scrutinized and/or appealed

  22. trumka i hope the AFL-CIO do to you what biden did to all those union jobs you have shown to all that your bank accounts mean more to you than the MEMBERSHIP
