AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka has died suddenly of a reported heart attack. The staff of the AFL-CIO was told of Trumka’s death this morning.
Trumka was president of the very powerful labor union that has become a kingmaker in politics with over 12.5 million workers. The Biden regime and the past Obama regime relied heavily on the AFL-CIO for support and endorsements. It’s not an understatement to say that the Democrats and the AFL-CIO had a mutually beneficial relationship.
Obama had a very special relationship with the AFL-CIO and with SEIU calling the service employees union his “Purple Army”…
It was first reported by Politico that Richard Trumka died of a massive heart attack but it is unclear when it occurred. Speculation of his death is that it happened Wednesday night or Thursday early morning.

Trumka was last skewered by Maria Bartiromo in August of 2020 for lying about President Trump’s record on jobs to Benefit candidate Biden:
Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo didn’t hold back during the interview with AFL-CIO Union boss Richard Trumka.
Biden supporter Trumka tried to lie his way through the interview by saying Trump’s record on jobs isn’t good. Bartiromo wasn’t going to let him get away with his lie, so she pushed back and appeared to fluster Trumka, who had his talking points but was no match for tough-as-nails Maria.
This will make your day:
He was like a deer in the headlights. Bravo, Maria!
