(National Sentinel)Â America First: POTUS Donald Trump won an unprecedented level of support from union workers, most of whom have always supported Democrats, during the 2016 campaign because he frequently talked about ending job-killing deals like NAFTA and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
As president, POTUS isÂ delivering on those promises, as just this week his administration announced it had reworked NAFTA with Mexico, even as Canadian officials said a deal to rework Ottawa’s portion of NAFTA with the U.S. was close.’
Kris Kobach, Kansas’ current secretary of state and GOP gubernatorial candidate, long ago adopted the kind of “populist nationalism” that POTUS Trump embodies, and he believes it will carry him to victory in November — and other Republicans if they adopt the same ‘America First’Â philosophy.
â€œI believe this is the future of the Republican Party,â€ he told Breitbart News regarding a GOP he wants to be centered around the American worker and union support. â€œThe Republican Party is the party of the makers. The Democrats are the party of takers.â€
On Friday, Kobach actuallyÂ won the support ofÂ the State Council of Firefighters, a workers union that has supported Democratic candidates forÂ six decades.

â€œThis is the first time in my lifetime that a major union has endorsed a Republican for governor in Kansas,â€ Kobach said.
A union official, Bob Wing, said his organization gave its endorsement to Kobach after he pledged to treat reform theÂ stateâ€™s workerâ€™s compensation laws as a priority. Kobach has said in his state worker’s compensation is too far tilted to favor employers and businesses.
â€œThe Democrats have given up representing the interests of working men and women of America to make the case for welfare recipients and illegal labor,â€ Kobach toldÂ Breitbart News, noting that Democrats want toÂ import as many immigrants to take American jobs as possible.
AsÂ Breitbart News news noted further:
Since Trumpâ€™s election, the American public has made clear their disdain for mass immigration, with the majority of swing-votersÂ sayingÂ they oppose the importation of more foreign workers and nearly half of AmericansÂ tellingÂ pollsters that illegal immigration crushes their wages. Before 2016, young white men favored Democrats over Republicans. Now, that tide hasÂ turned.
