Donald Trump Posts Twitter Tirade On Firefighters Who Support Biden, Biden Fires Back
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was officially endorsed by the International Association of Firefighters last week, unsettling President Donald Trump. The commander in chief took to Twitter on Wednesday to lash out, claiming he has “done more for Firefighters than this dues sucking union will ever do,” adding how he does not get paid any money.
I’ve done more for Firefighters than this dues sucking union will ever do, and I get paid ZERO! https://t.co/Tw0qwTiUD6

Conservative Fox News personality Dan Bongino tweeted out how none of the firefighters he personally knows are in support of the former Vice President on Monday, which Trump retweeted on Wednesday morning.
NONE of the Firemen I know are supporting Joe Biden for President. 👇🏻 https://t.co/4fxN35oevu

Bongino’s tweet received over 4,000 responses, many of which came from people who have professed support for Trump during the 2020 race. Trump responded to this by retweeting nearly 60 of those responses. Here is a handful of the tweets Trump selected:
Just the union leadership supports Biden. Members support Trump. This applies to most unions.

👈🏼 This career firefighter will not be voting for any Democrat on the ticket. I will be voting for @POTUS again.

Nope not me either. I’m not voting for crazy Joe. My support is behind @realDonaldTrump in 2020!

The ONLY reason why Joe Biden is able to get into this race is he knows for a fact that the democrat media will never dare to ask him a question about the corrupt Obama administration’s scandals, or about his dealings with Ukraine companies and government on behalf of his son.

Notably, one user who claimed her husband would vote for Trump changed her Twitter handle to “**** Donald Trump” after her message was retweeted by him. Trump has since un-retweeted it.
My husband a New York City firefighter for 15 years will be voting Trump 2020 all the way!!

Biden responded to Trump’s Twitter tirade later in the day. “I understand the president’s been tweeting a lot about me,” Biden noted during an Iowa City campaign stop. “I wonder why the hell he’s doing that? Anyway, imagine I’m going to be the object of his attention for a while.”
