    President Trump Unleashes on Chamber of Commerce

    President Donald Trump is angry at the Chamber of Commerce for putting its lobbying weight against his ‘America First’ policies on trade and immigration.
    Trump called into CNBC today to bash the Chamber and even threaten to revoke his long-time membership to the organization.
    “I’m a member of the U.S. Chamber,” Trump said. “Maybe I’ll have to rethink that, because when you look at it, the chamber is probably more for the companies and the people that are members than they are for our country.”
    Trump’s remarks come after Myron Brilliant, who works as the Chamber’s head of international affairs, criticized Trump’s “weaponization of tariffs” earlier in the day. The Chamber is an organization that supports corporate trade deals like NAFTA and the TPP.


    Trump is appalled by this establishment GOP organization’s lack of support for the progress that his nationalist approach is making in solving problems.
    “I just want to say to the United States Chamber of Commerce, if we didn’t have tariffs, we wouldn’t have made a deal with Mexico,” Trump said.

    It is not just Trump’s trade agenda in which the Chamber of Commerce is staunchly opposed. They also support amnesty for illegal aliens and oppose Trump’s border wall.


    Trump took note of the Chamber’s lack of patriotism as they care more about preserving corporate profit margins than protecting U.S. sovereignty.
    “As far as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, they have to start representing the United States, not just the companies that are members of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce,” Trump said.

    US Chamber of Commerce:

    “US” in that it lobbies the US government.
    “Chamber of Commerce” in that it represents global crony corporatism.
