    Looks like the drivers get to voice there concerns and opinions. Right to president Trump.

    Sounds good to me and if he starts holding Mexican trucking companies and drivers to our standards it would be a good start. Then he should treat them like they treat our drivers down there, to drive in Mexico even a four wheeler has to buy Mexican insurance, your State Farm won't do down there.

    Seems strange having a President that brings truckers and coal miners into the White House instead of Big Tech CEO's and celebrities.

    I was a horrible student and my memory is just as bad...but I recall Miss S. teaching about a President who's inauguration included opening up the White House to the common man. She spoke of drunken madness, swinging from chandeliers and basically tearing the place up. I'm thinking Andrew Jackson for some reason but I don't know why. Maybe this is his 2nd coming...

    Here, I found something on it.

    I think that up until the 1890's you could knock on the front door and ask to see the President.

    It was trucking company CEO's and ATA members. The only real truck driver there was the one that drove the ATA's promotional Mack to the event, and unless he was wearing a suit and tie also,...... I didn't see him there.

    Mr. Trump climbed up into the Mack and blew the airhorn. He was surrounded by bald heads and black suits........ Didn't see any bearded tattooed sleeveless guy slurping coffee out of a travel mug in the crowd. Must've made him stand off to the side for the photo op.

    That also wasn't a union truck he got in, that's not going to happen.

    You're right! Come to think of it,.........I didn't see any Teamsters jackets in the crowd......

    And you would think Jimmy would be sitting right in Mr. Trump's lap,...... if there was a photo op........

    Hoffa has already did the lapdance.

    Now, the only way Hillary can get a face to face with Hoffa is if she was delivering pizza to his house.
