GOP frontrunner Donald Trump touted his support from unions and the workers across America during a campaign stop in Salem, New Hampshire on Monday morning where he took questions from voters.

“The workers of this country are with me because I’m going to create jobs,” Trump said to a union worker who asked how Trump could pitch his campaign message to obtain union votes.

“I’ve done very well with unions,” Trump responded, referencing building projects in Manhattan where he has worked with the unions in the past.

“My support is really with those workers – those people,” Trump said, referencing policemen, plumbers and construction workers. “My weakest support [is] with rich people, isn’t that funny?”

Trump joked that he doesn’t even like rich people.

“The unions are almost all Democrat,” Trump said, adding that is their problem.

“The men and people of the Teamsters want to vote for me,” he said, adding, the leadership is always stuck with the Democrats, “but the workers want to vote for Trump.”
