Following the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s attacks against the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump fired back—blasting the Chamber’s opposition to his trade agenda as “sinister.”
Trump declared that the Chamber of Commerce is “controlled” by special interests that push for trade deals that will devastate American workers. He also told his audience that the special interests who run the Chamber of Commerce “don’t care about you whatsoever.”
The Chamber of Commerce’s opposition to Donald Trump’s agenda is significant. Trump noted during his campaign rally, the Chamber of Commerce generally supports the Republican Party. However, this year the Chamber seems to have more policies in common with Hillary Clinton on two of the most significant issues of the election—trade and immigration—than it does with presumptive Republican nominee.
