Chamber Of Commerce President On 2012 Republicans: Trump Not My Choice, Christie Is ‘Exciting’

Donald Trump may be extremely successful in the business world, but he already received a vote of no confidence from the president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the chief lobbying group for many influential business leaders. Thomas Donahue appeared on the Fox Business Network and when asked whether he would vote for Trump for President, Donahue bluntly said “no.”

Donahue dismissed Trump as “a great real estate magnate and a lot of other things, but he wouldn’t be my choice to be President.” Instead, Donahue argues we need somebody with a “broad range of global experience and somebody that folks will rally behind.” One other candidate mentioned was Republican Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie, who Donahue called “exciting.” Donahue spent the majority of the interview discussing the harmful impact of high corporate tax rates and burdensome regulations under the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Bill; however, that’s not nearly as exciting as 2012 presidential speculation.
