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 Chamber, along with Koch Industries and other globalist lobbying interests, have driven the pro-trade, open immigration status quo of the Republican Party for decades. Donahue’s comments make it clear that the Chamber’s agenda has not changed in the Trump era.
“Immigrants have long been a vital part of our economy, and they can help fill those gaps now…. Our nation must continue to attract and welcome the world’s most industrious and innovative people and finally fix our broken immigration system,” Donahue said last year.
“The United States is fundamentally out of people,” Donohue said.
The lobbying push by the Chamber toward Trump to persuade him to abandon his electoral mandate seems to be working as Trump’s rhetoric on immigration has shifted drastically in recent months.

Organizations like the Chamber are never going to make it easy to repel globalism from the Republican Party.
BREAKING: Trump Reveals Mitch McConnell BEGGED For His Endorsement in Scathing Takedown Statement
Possibly the most brutal takedown since Jeb Bush.
“The Republican Party can never again be respected or strong with political ‘leaders’ like Sen. Mitch McConnell at its helm.”
This was the powerful first sentence of former President Donald Trump’s most recent incredible and high energy press statement released Tuesday afternoon. The complete disavowal and humiliation of McConnell comes to no surprise after the supposedly Republican Senate Minority Leader backstabbed President Trump multiple times after the November 4th election. More recently, McConnell has been focusing on appeasing his Democratic friends and repudiating Trump time and time again, consistently referring to Trump as a “disgrace” and mocking Trump supporters as insurrectionists.
In an almost reminiscent 2016 Candidate Trump fashion, the 45th President of the United States responded to McConnell’s treachery by verbally tearing him apart, limb by limb:
“Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again.”
Big League Politics has previously reported on Minority Traitor McConnell quite a number of times this past week as he continues to slander Donald Trump and the Republican voter base. McConnell encouraged the unconstitutional impeachment trial of now private citizen Trump, he has betrayed his own voter base who now overwhelming disapproves of him, he denounced Trump and his supporters as “conspiracy theorists” and “criminals“, and McConnell has also recently announced that he will attempt to prevent future pro-MAGA Republican candidates from running.
Read the full statement here:
Trump has repeatedly said, even before he got involved in politics, that loyalty is one of the most important things to him. When someone is disloyal to Trump he sees it as a “great act of horror” and has also publicly stated: “I love getting even with people.”
Trump also announced in his press release that he will support candidates in a primary against McConnell and any Republican politicians that betrayed him and the MAGA movement.
“someday i’d like to lose everything… to see who’s loyal and who’s not loyal”

Interestingly enough, Trump also asserted that McConnell “begged” for Trump’s endorsement, and Trump is the only reason McConnell had any chance at winning reelection. As Trump put it:
He went from one point down to 20 points up, and won. How quickly he forgets. Without my endorsement, McConnell would have lost, and lost badly. Now, his numbers are lower than ever before, he is destroying the Republican side of the Senate, and in so doing, seriously hurting our Country.
While 2026 (the year McConnell will be up for reelection) seems relatively far out, Donald Trump affirms he’ll be there. The lion awaits patiently, vengefully, and lacks any remorse for the jackals that betrayed him.
