Donald Trump has earned praise from an unlikely ally, and it could bode 
well for his 2020 campaign. As the Free Beacon reports:
AFL-CIO union boss Richard Trumka praised President Donald Trump

on Friday for keeping jobs in the United States.

While appearing on MSNBC's Meet the Press Daily, Trumka was asked

what he thought of Trump working to keep jobs from moving overseas,

as he did with the air conditioning manufacturer Carrier.

"What do you make of what he's done with Carrier? What do you make

of some of these deals?" MSNBC host Chuck Todd asked. "Some will

say, ‘oh, it's a little blustery,' but he seems to be making a rhetorical

effort and he seems to be picking up the phone and some of these

companies seem to be a little nervous."

"Man, I applaud him for every one. Every job that we save in this

country for an American worker, particularly a good paying, middle-class

producing job, it is exceptionally well done," Trumka said. "So we're

happy that that happened."
This is a good sign. The AFL-CIO is never going to become a
 Republican powerhouse, but Trump's embrace of economic
 nationalism and commitment to investing in American infrastructure 
could take the issue, and the group, off the table for any Democrat
 who seeks to challenge him in 2020.
