New Chamber of Commerce CEO Praises Democrats Shortly After Assuming Position
Shortly after assuming her new role, incoming Chamber of Commerce CEO Suzanne Clark praised Democrats for embracing corporatism as the Republican Party becomes the America First workers party.
“We did support more Democrats last year than we have before because they supported our priorities,” said Clark during a Bloomberg TV interview on Wednesday.
Longtime CEO Tom Donohue was forced out of his role after Chamber members staged a revolt due to the Chamber’s betrayal of the GOP and support of Democrats throughout the 2020 election cycle. Unfortunately, the new boss appears to have similar priorities as her predecessor.
“We had more Democrats join us in that fight last year, and that was a good thing,” Clark said about her organization’s fight to maintain globalist control on issues like trade and immigration.
Clark has announced that she will be terminating Chamber support for certain lawmakers who supported an investigation into voter fraud concerns as well.
“There are people who lost our support on Jan. 6, no doubt about it,” she said. “We need to look at the events leading up to that date and what’s happened since then and who turns to governing.”
The Chamber will also work on coercing vaccine compliance as part of their agenda throughout the Biden regime.
Big League Politics has reported on the Chamber showing their true colors throughout the Trump administration:
The US Chamber of Commerce is not happy about President Donald Trump’s threats to close down the US southern border, and the organization is using its tremendous lobbying power to curtail Trump on immigration and trade issues.
“Even threatening to close the border to legitimate commerce and travel creates a degree of economic uncertainty that risks compromising the very gains in growth and productivity that policies of the Trump administration have helped achieve,” said Neil Bradley, the Chamber’s executive vice president and chief policy officer.
Thomas Donahue, CEO for the US Chamber of Commerce, appeared on CNBC yesterday where he attempted to downplay his organization’s opposition to the President’s agenda. Still, he expressed some concerns with Trump’s tough talk on Mexico.
“We don’t want to shut down the people that come to the United States everyday to work here across the border that we need. We don’t want to shut down the trade,” Donahue said.
Although Donahue admitted that the migrant crisis at the border is substantial and that “the house is full,” the Chamber is still lobbying President Trump to moderate his trade and immigration policies.
“I think we have conveyed to the President some of the issues he should be thinking about,” Donahue said.
Donahue hopes that Trump’s strong rhetoric on the border is mostly to garner attention and not a serious public policy proposal. He also wants Trump’s trade war with China to conclude as quickly as possible.
“I am not in all of the trade issues enamored with tariffs because, as you know, they’re all paid for by American companies,” Donahue said, in direct opposition to Trump’s trade policy.
“You buy a million dollars worth of steel somewhere that has a tariff on it, you send a check for a quarter of a million dollars to the US government,” Donahue said, deriding the effect of Trump’s policies.
Additionally, Donahue hopes that Congress will pass a “new NAFTA agreement” so Trump’s tariffs can be brought to an end.
The new political realignment is showing what pro-Wall Street “conservatives” really think of America. They worship the dollar bill and are happy to sell out to China to the highest bidder.
