Hillary Joins Union Workers to Troll Donald Trump Outside His Las Vegas Hotel

Today, the Democratic candidates for the presidency will debate for the first time. As a pre-debate warmup, candidate Hillary Clinton joined some union workers outside the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas, to taunt Trump and to support union workers at the Culinary Workers Union who are trying to unionize the facility. If you are going to run for president, then represent all of the people of the United States," she said. "I wanted to come by to lend my voice to all yours and I wish you well in these efforts."

Although Bernie Sanders did not attend the event, a supporter did drive by in a car emblazoned with his campaign logo, saying, “We want Bernie!” which elicited huge applause from the workers.
