Former President Donald Trump is no shrinking violet when it comes to letting people know what kind of hours he keeps. Although he doesn’t post his schedules online, he might as well. The former President is often posting on his own social media site, Truth Social, at all hours of the day and night. But if something is particularly bothering the business mogul, he reveals his inability to sleep through early morning posts.

And such was the case on Friday morning. The former President took to Truth in the wee hours of the morning to drop an ominous warning to the newly striking United Auto Workers union. Here’s what he had to say.

Trump Grilled By Former Ally

Donald Trump‘s early hours are no mystery today. Yesterday, an interview aired of the former President being grilled by a former ally. On Thursday, Trump participated in a question-and-answer type interview with Megyn Kelly, former Fox News host and occasional Trump ally. The duo met for the first time in a long time, marking eight years since he first lost his temper at Kelly over a debate question that she posed to him during the 2016 election cycle.

At the time, Kelly pressed Trump about his treatment of women, prompting the former President to erupt at her. He later famously said she had “blood coming out of her wherever” as a way of insulting the former Fox host. The duo discussed the question on Thursday’s interview, with both parties having different takes on the now-infamous moment. Trump remarked on it, calling it a “bad question.” Kelly disagreed, saying it was a “great question.” Trump reiterated his point, calling it a “nasty” question. And Kelly, clearly eager to stop rehashing history, responded shortly, “It was awesome. You handled it well. Your poll numbers went up. Let’s move past that.”

Aside from revisiting their infamous feud, the two had an otherwise productive discussion if occasionally contentious. Kelly pressed Trump about his upcoming classified documents case but went silent when he ranted about “fake ballots” in the 2020 election. Later, Kelly explained her silence and lack of fact-checking: “The interview would go five hours. You can’t do that as anchor. You’re going to bore the people at home and you’re going to waste valuable time.”

Donald Trump Drops Ominous Warning To Auto Workers Amid Strike

Donald Trump often loses sleep or remains restless after big interviews. So it’s no surprise that he was up early on Friday. And it is especially no surprise that he wanted to weigh in on the newly-announced United Auto Workers strike, which kicked off late Thursday.

Trump took to Truth to share his thoughts on the upcoming battle. But it wasn’t poorly-paying bosses or working conditions on Trump’s mind. It was an electric car. Trump wrote, “The all Electric Car is a disaster for both the United Auto Workers and the American Consumer. They will all be built in China and, they are too expensive, don’t go far enough, take too long to charge, and pose various dangers under certain atmospheric conditions.” He added, “If this happens, the United Auto workers will be wiped out, along with all other auto workers in the United States. The all Electric Car policy is about as dumb as Open Borders and No Voter I.D. IT IS A COMPLETE AND TOTAL DISASTER!”

The newest union strike comes as auto workers worry about their place in the coming world of electric cars. They are demanding a bigger share of profits generated by combustion trucks. Additionally, they’re seeking stronger job security as the industry makes the shift to electric vehicles. The strike is widely viewed as a political issue, and President Joe Biden is expected to press for a deal today. Presidential candidates eyeing a 2024 win will have to weigh in and weigh in quickly. Donald Trump may have been the first with his early-morning post, but he won’t be the last.
