Breitbart News, the outlet that was once run by top Donald Trump adviser Steve Bannon, criticized the president-elect’s decision to tap Andy Puzder for Labor secretary, blasting the fast food CEO for preferring “foreign labor to American workers.”Like I have said, Puzder appears to be one of Trump's best Cabinet picks.
The site, which has become the leading platform for the right-wing populist movement that helped propel Trump to an electoral win, ran a story on Thursday with a headline that claims Puzder “prefers foreign labor to American workers.”
The article notes Puzder’s advocacy for immigration reform, citing a number of op-ed’s and speeches he’s made praising immigrant workers for their willingness to fill difficult jobs.
The site also attacked Puzder for telling GOP donors last year that "our values indicate we should be the party of immigration reform.”
“By ‘immigration reform’ Puzder was referring to a widely-used progressive euphemism that means amnesty and flooding the labor market with foreign workers,” reads the Breitbart article.
Breitbart also takes a dig at Trump, suggesting he is turning his back on the supporters who propelled him into the White House. Puzder, the article states, “stands diametrically opposed to Trump’s signature issues on trade and immigration — which won him the election.”
