Trump slams Chamber of Commerce over tariff opposition

By Brett Samuels  - 06/10/19 09:27 AM EDT


President Trump on Monday lashed out at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce over the lobbying organization’s opposition to his threat of tariffs against Mexico.

The president called into CNBC for a lengthy interview after a representative from the Chamber appeared on the network to voice concerns with Trump’s use of tariffs as a negotiating tactic. Trump voiced his displeasure with the Chamber and said he was considering giving up his membership with the business group over the spat.

"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."

A special interest group has a special interest in their group? How odd.... :pondering:
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

Trump is angry others were against the tariffs Trump didn't have the balls to enact.  What a freak.
