U.S. Chamberpot of Commerce stabs Trump in the back
For decades, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said it was for corporate tax relief and the rolling back of unnecessary regulations. Donald John Trump was the only president to deliver both.
The chamber reacted by suing him and moving to endorse Democrats who voted to impeach him.
If there is a lower form of life in Washington than Tom Donohue, the $6 million-a-year man at the chamber, I do not want to see it.
His unprovoked attacks on President Trump show Donohue was lying all along.
He does not want tax cuts or regulations cut because big business can easily dodge taxes and regulations serve as a barrier from competition that protects big corporations that can afford compliance with whatever hoop the bureaucrats want you to jump through on any particular day. Capriciousness is a hallmark of government.
Donohue never liked President Trump. For example, on June 28, 2016, Donohue tweeted, "Under Trump's trade plans, we would see higher prices, fewer jobs, and a weaker economy."
President Trump brought 3.5% unemployment and a stronger economy. The only inflation we have had is in the stock market -- which has risen 56% since we elected Donald Trump president.
Donohue doesn't care about any of that. He is a little social justice warrior in a business suit because rather than admit he was wrong and beg forgiveness, Donohue and his chamber have sued the president.
In a New York Times piece, Donohue wrote, "Over the past few weeks, the Trump administration has decided to close the door to engineers, executives, information technology experts, doctors, nurses and others who come to the United States on work visas. It has attempted to ban international students from attending American colleges and universities that hold classes virtually in the fall. And it has shown an unwavering commitment to canceling the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA."
Donohue has made the chamber a chamberpot of open borders.
Good grief, he supports Red China sending spies as students and faculty members to our universities.
And now Donohue wants the chamber to endorse vulnerable Democrats in House races, because that will keep Nancy Pelosi speaker.
Politico reported, "The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is poised to endorse nearly two dozen freshmen House Democrats for reelection, triggering a revolt within the right-leaning organization and drawing fierce pushback from the group’s powerful GOP donors.
"The decision represents a sharp departure for the traditionally conservative Chamber, which has spent over $100 million backing Republican candidates during the past decade, and it threatens to further complicate the party’s prospects in the November election while driving a split in the business community."
Republicans should turn their back on the chamber because Donohue has turned it into another loony lefty group.
