Hillary Clinton joined in with a large group of union picketers outside of Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s Las Vegas hotel, and blasted the hotel magnate’s rhetoric as “unacceptable behavior.”
“Some people think Mr. Trump is entertaining,” Clinton said at a protest hosted by the Culinary Workers Local 226, which is locked in a contract battle with the Trump casino over wages and health care benefits. “But I don’t think it’s entertaining when somebody insults immigrants, insults women.”
Clinton made a somewhat surprise appearance at the rally, with local press in Vegas getting word of her arrival shortly before she appeared at the rally. National press, in town for Tuesday’s Democratic Party debate, eventually showed up too, and Clinton spoke before a slew of TV cameras.
Clinton said she was there to show“solidarity” with the workers’ cause and to push back on Trump.
Watch a report uploaded by Economy Word:
“I think you have a right to organize, you have right to safe working conditions, you have a right to a living wage,” she said. “And you have to say yes to all of that and you have to say no to efforts to prevent you from organizing to prevent you from having the kind of working conditions you deserve.”
“And that means saying no to Donald Trump,” she added.
The Culinary Workers union represents tens of thousands of hospitality workers in a state where tourism is a major part of the economy.
According to CNN, Bernie Sanders did not attend the rally but a Tesla wrapped in Sanders’ campaign logo drove by just after Clinton left.
“We want Bernie,” the driver yelled, which garnered loud applause from the union members.
We’re sure Trump will take to his Twitter account to say Ms. Clinton is ’emotional’ and that she had ‘blood coming out of her whatever.’
