The International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) is endorsing Joe Biden’s 2020 Democratic presidential bid after staying on the sidelines during the 2016 race.
“On behalf of the International Association of Fire Fighters, I’m proud to announce that we stand with Joe Biden and endorse his candidacy for President of the United States,” Harold Schaitberger, the IAFF’s general president, said in a video released early Monday.
The IAFF is the first major labor group to endorse a candidate in the 2020 race.
In a tweet later Monday, President Trump seemed to respond to the news of the endorsement, saying he’ll “never get the support of Dues Crazy union leadership,” but “the members love Trump.”
