In response, Chuck Jones told Erin Burnett in a follow-up call: “I don’t put a whole hell lot of faith in whatever he says…I just don’t pay a hell of a lot of attention to him,” and reiterated his hope that Donald Trump would save the 550 jobs his “deal” did not protect. “I didn’t attack him; I just called him out on where I felt he misled the people—and if he doesn’t like it, that’s just tough as far as I’m concerned.” The Union president said he would be willing to work with anyone to keep jobs in the United States, including incoming President Donald Trump.

In response, several journalists have expressed dismay and shock at Trump’s response to the Union president, further discrediting their abilities of perception as this behavior is nothing new to anyone who has observed the Trump campaign since its inception:
