Trump slams Chamber of Commerce over its opposition to tariffs


CHARLES: PRESIDENT TRUMP TODAY LASHING OUT AT THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AFTER THEY ACCUSED TRUMP OF ORGANIZING TARIFFS DID TRUMP RESPONDED BY SAYING I’M A MEMBER OF THE U.S. CHAMBER 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. WE KEEP HEARING CONSUMERS AND FARMERS AND SMALL BUSINESSES ARE GETTING HIT IN THIS WAR TO MAKE CHINA PLAYFAIR BUT CAN OR WILL BIG BUSINESSES STOP COMPLAINING LONG ENOUGH TO HELP US WIN THE WAR? CAROL, I KNOW YOU’RE A PURIST WHEN IT COMES TO THIS THINGS SO I’M SURE YOUR SIDE WITH THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE BUT TO SEE WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP MIGHT BE COMING FROM HERE?>>I WOULD NOT SAY THAT I FIGHT WITH THEM AND I THINK THAT EVERYBODY HAS A FAIR SHAKE OVER HERE AND FIRST OF ALL I WANT TO COMMEND PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR WHAT HE IS DOING. I THINK THE FACT THAT HE HAS BEEN BEHOLDEN TO CHINA WE BEEN BEHOLDEN TO CHINA FOR SO LONG AND SO STRONG AND HAS THE FORTITUDE TO GO AFTER THEM. CAN THINK OF ANOTHER PRESIDENT WHO WOULD HAVE DONE IT. STRATEGICALLY I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH THAT AND FROM A MECHANISM STANDPOINT, TACTIC, I WOULD HAVE GONE IN THE IP DIRECTION BUT AT THE SAME TIME WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE CHAMBER THEY ARE REPRESENTING BUSINESSES AND NOT JUST THE BIG BUSINESS INTEREST BUT THE SMALL BUSINESSES OF THIS COUNTRY, 30.2 MILLION OF THEM THAT ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THEY’RE DOING AND CREATE PLANS AND IT’S DIFFICULT TO DO AN UNCERTAIN ENVIRONMENT SO I CAN’T SAY THAT ONE OF THEM IS RIGHT AND THE OTHER IS WRONG TO THINK THEY’RE BOTH DOING WHAT IT IS THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE DOING AND REPRESENTING THINGS IN A DIFFERENT WAY. CHARLES: WHAT CONCERNS ME IS AS THIS TALK OF SOCIALISM CONTINUES TO GET LOUDER AND LOUDER AND MANY AMERICANS BLEEDING BIG BUSINESS ARE JUST UNFAIR AND GREEDY AND THE FIRST QUARTER AMERICAN BUSINESSES MADE $2 TRILLION IN PROFIT, $2.6 TRILLION IN NET CASH FLOW AND THE RECORD WAS IN THE THIRD QUARTER OF LAST YEAR SO EVEN PEOPLE WHO ARE APOLITICAL MAY LOOK AT THAT AND MAY BE AT THE AS THE FARMERS ARE BEING ATTACKED AND BUSINESSES COULD PUT OFF THE BUYBACKS FOR A QUARTER OR TWO AND MAYBE THEY COULD BE WITH US SET OF MARGINS AT 30% TO GET SKIN IN THE GAME.>>YEAH, I ALWAYS LOVED THE GREAT CONVERSATION BECAUSE BUSINESSES ARE ALWAYS GREEDY FOR TRYING TO MAKE A PROFIT FOR AVOIDING A LOSS BUT GOVERNMENT IS NEVER GREEDY AND OF COURSE THE CONSUMER IS NEVER GREEDY TRYING TO GET LOWER PRICES. THERE’S A PUSH AND PULL AND WE WANT TO HAVE WORKERS WHO ARE DOING A GREAT JOB IN MAKING GREAT WAGES BUT REMEMBER THE CONSUMER SPENDING IS 70% OF THE ECONOMY AND AT THE END OF THE DAY CONSUMERS DON’T WANT TO PAY $60 FOR A T-SHIRT THEY CAN GET FOR $18. THAT IS DRIVING WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH PRICES. THE COMPANIES ARE JUST PULLING THESE THINGS OUT OF THIN AIR BUT THERE’S A REASON FOR THE FREE MARKET DOES WHAT IT DOES. IT STARTS WITH WHAT THE CONSUMERS ARE WILLING TO PAY. IT IS SOMETIMES VERY NARROW TO LOOK AT ONE PIECE OF THE PUZZLE AND SAY THIS IS GREED OVER HERE BUT YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT THE

  1. Why is it so hard to understand that you negotiate from a position of strength? It should also be said that you DON'T undermine the president during that process!

  2. It takes Trump two-and-a-half years to throw tariffs on Mexico to get their troops up and help the border wall protection to me that's unexcusable why in the hell didn't Trump do that right off the bat that's my theory on this and why didn't you put tariffs on China right off the bat poor excuse for a president a penny short and Always A Dollar Late that's our president

  3. Dumb doesn't know trade deficits are deteriorating since trade tariffs.
    Consumers are paying for the tariffs, not Dumb.

  4. Trump is doing a great job but these problems are just the beginning of bigger problems. Divine judgement is upon us. Warnings are everywhere as prophesied and we aren't listening to the Lord. Worry about that, Godless masses.

  5. Lol sounds so much like something "Obummer" would say. "You didn't build that" ….. smdh. More for the members YET he IS a member? Trumpy is a joke and the pressure is getting to him. He's aged 10 years in a 2 in the house.

  9. why does the chamber even care?Β Β  who are they anyway but "well a chamber of commerce"Β  they should be silent, making a statement is bias.

  10. China has been stealing our Intellectual Propery and dumping products at low low prices. Thereby forcing American companies out of biz!

  11. no Carol appreciate the info but I kind of disagree if the consumers had more money they would just spend it on higher price

  12. Trumps with America. Mutt Romney, Justin Amash&all the other sellout "Republicans" are corrupt as hell & out for self. #DrainTheSwamp #MittMittTheLyingGodlessNarcissisticHypocrite

  13. All the small businesses who keep being undercut by cheap Mexican products, is that who the CoC represents?

  14. So what she is saying is slave Labor in China is ok as long as we get things cheaper. So done has to suffer for what she is saying. She is an Idiot. How about she make the cheap stuff and I'll pay her a slaves wage then Perhaps I will side with what she says.

  15. We must stop thinking price and consider helping our neighbors have a job making quality and repairable items and the incomes to provide for their families. This is what keep MAKE AMERICA GREAT and stay this way. We are great because we are good and care about others. Sharing the wealth. MAGA 2020

  16. Yep. / So we have her down for…(I'm getting my lead ✏️……. )
    Zero border Globalism …

    (I'll pay 3x the price to NOT have to replace same part 5x)
    (Oh wait….Uhhhh. oh! And put America BACK to work from the Establishments destruction)

  17. "I'm winning, but I'm not winning on a level table. If I had a table — don't forget, the head of the Fed in China is President Xi."
    – Trump is NUTS!

  18. "I'm a budget cutter and I have cut the budget." Trump's proposed budget this year — $4.75 trillion — was the largest in American history. So….Trump is NUTS!

  19. "We are — if you look at China, China, as great as they are and they are great, they are near the capability of our geniuses in Silicon Valley that walk around in undershirts and they were not $2 billion a piece." – Trump is NUTS!

  20. He tells the little guy to tighten our belts. You know like a patriot. Then gives huge tax cuts to the rich. Its nice to see what our government really thinks of the people.

  21. These people have been warned and warned and warned. We need a Oliver Cromwell. Lol. He told parliament to get the fuc out on the peril of your lives, leave immediately!! That’s what it’s going to take. The country will elect leftist who would happily put the Kock brothers and their ilk in a sewer/dungeon. It’s coming to that. Arrogant idiot bastards.

  22. Charles Making America Great Again, By putting the elites on the spot. I don't want President Trump to ever make a deal with China.

  23. The Chamber of Commerce in USA doesn't care about the people or the government, they only care about their profits, maybe our president Trump should tax them more again! He he he!

  24. My favorite president among all others is _onald Trump! The D is missing because it is in every TRUMP-HATER'S mouth!!!πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ€£β€πŸ‘

  27. Why hasn't trump passed laws to get rid of the swamp ? Lobbyists are running your government still . If you look hes put em in his government just like Obama did . That woman is fake as her nose πŸ™‚

  28. Under Trump wE now have the biggest trade deficit in the history of the US. And economists left right and center swore tariffs don’t work. What fools they were.

  29. Many Americans care about short term cash, against virtue, honesty, truth & the larger good of our nation in crucial ways!

    Like the song said (Aaron Tippin?) "You've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything." #MAGA

    Trump: "I'm a member of the Chamber, but maybe I'll have to rethink that…" #GoTrump! I LOVE my president! πŸ’›πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έβ˜Ί

  30. Chamber of commerce is not like harry potter illusion chamber of secrets.
    Experts sit in Chamber of commerce.
    Fools sit in illusion of chamber of secrets.

  31. The "King of Debt" and five time multi million dollar bankruptcies. Billion+ LOSS. US banks literally cut him off from borrowing money.
    F him all day long.

  32. ..but the cheap deals are costing us dearly in our future.. if we re-industrialize aiming to self suficiency, there will be a transition with some pain, but that will be a small price to pay for our freedom from the galloping world dominance threat that is china.. if we continue they way we are, feeding such a monster, in as short a time as a generation, we could be a 3rd world country.. we need to fight and meet the challenge, there’s no choice but unite and work hard for our better destiny!! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έβš‘οΈπŸ’ͺπŸ»βš‘οΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ πŸ‘πŸ»β€ΌοΈ

  33. I wonder why Mani of the comments sound as a communist propaganda I grew up in a communist Czechoslovakia and it was a communist religion that big capital betrays workers and large corporations don't care for national interests only for profits and their loyalty is international not national. Strange to at it repeated in the fortress of international capitalism. And it seems that Trump is annointed an American Lenin, saving Mother am

  34. Hey, imposing tariffs on foreign goods is the president's executive privilege power. STOP interfering with the president, please!

  35. The Chamber of Congress is another gangrenous appendage that needs to be amputated.

    "Beware the Military/ Industrial (Congressional) Complex…"

  36. These r the exact same steps that led trump to bankruptcy multiple times πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ america up nxt

  37. Concerned about increases in prices of agriculture from Mexico? Let's rip out all the wheat, soy and corn fields in the US and replace them with the products imported from Mexico. We don't need all the grain in our diets in the first place, and we'd all benefit by a greater availability of foods we import from elsewhere. And there are plenty of Mexican "undocumenteds" here in the US to pick those foods, too.

  38. Greed is the root of the problem corporations ruining this country go trump. Then they wonder why socialism is being talked about this is why corporate greed.

  39. Chamber just made a huge dumb mistake. Holding hands with the Dems who are in self destruct mode. Trump making the right call at the right time. America is watching.

  40. So now it's the democrats, the republicans, all of our allies around the world, and now business in the US potting against the sStable Genius and his nutty economic policy. Of course, no paranoia here — it must be everyone in the world is wrong and Trump is right. After all, he has had such a successful career in business. s

    for those really dim MAGATards, that's called sarcasm. Have your Mommie look it up.>

  41. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE IS JUST A NEST OF COMMUNISTS, RAD. MUSLIMS, DEMS, AND LOSERS. THIS SOCIALIST ARE THE ENEMY OF AMERICAN PEOPLE!!!

  42. Trump You Had Tomuch To Loose, To Doing This For the USA.
    BIG Risk you"ve shouldn"t Do iT.>> Lots of em Dont Respect iT.
    Mankind Should be Proud of You Don.

  43. Chamber of Congress is a supporter of Open Borders! Another group that needs to be investigated! Now!

  44. Don’t back down, Mr. President! It will be seen as a sign of weakness, especially to your enemies in Congress!

  45. Trump forces farmers in the midwest onto welfare because of tariffs on China. Farmers received almost 20 billion dollars last year but many still went into bankruptcy and some committed suicide.

  46. What self centered un-American clowns. Guaranteed that the Chinese chamber of commerce doesn't talk such unpatrioticΒ crap. Time to grow a spine guys, and stand with our president, as he battles on behalf of the American people. You'll have plenty of time to be self absorbed money grubbers after the trade deal is done.

  47. There is no other way to negotiate with China. ,They lie and renege on every deal they make. Tariffs are the only way.
