One day before the New Hampshire primary, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump touted his support among unions, saying the demographic he actually has trouble with is rich people.

"I work in areas where we have unions, we don't have unions," Mr. Trump said Monday at a town hall-style meeting in New Hampshire. "Manhattan is a hundred percent - you're building a building, it's essentially a hundred percent union. So I've worked with unions over the years - I've done very well with unions."

 "And I have tremendous support within unions, and I have tremendous support in areas where they don't have unions," he said. "Like in Florida, they don't have very many unions. The workers love me."

"I mean, my support is really with those workers, those people," he said. "That's it - the policemen, the firemen, the construction workers, the lathers, the sheetrock workers, the electricians, the plumbers. That's where my support is - every poll shows it."

He said his weakest support is with "very rich people."

"Isn't that funny? I don't along that well with the rich," he said.

He said that union groups are almost all aligned with Democrats, though he pointed out how the powerful Teamsters union put off endorsing in the presidential race last fall.

"The men and women of the Teamsters are with Trump," he said. "The workers of this country are going to vote for me, [because] I'm going to create jobs."
