This is why Hillary Clinton will ultimately land the endorsement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce over her rival, Donald Trump.
Last week, the president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Thomas Donohue, spoke to Fox Business and, although he was coy about who the America’s largest business lobbying group might endorse for November’s election, he was very defensive of NAFTA and “ObamaTrade” ( aka the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP).
In addition to the Chamber’s long-held desire to see “immigration reform” implemented, that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will lean toward Hillary Clinton for November’s elections should shock no one.
Simply put, the business community—especially the global business community for whom the U.S. Chamber lobbies extensively for—doesn’t want any Trump-style walls built…either in trade or at any border.
Now that Clinton has picked a pro-amnesty and pro-TPP senator (Tim Kaine, D-VA) to serve as her running mate, it would seem that the Chamber’s endorsement is only a matter of time.
…by picking him, Clinton is signaling that her newly declared opposition to the agreement is not sincere. The latter explanation would confirm the theory offered by U.S. Chamber of Commerce head Tom Donohue, among others, who has said that Clinton is campaigning against the TPP for political reasons but would ultimately implement the deal. [Emphasis added.]
With the open borders, massive immigration and free trade that a Clinton presidency ensures, Clinton is the logical choice.
From her days sitting on the board of Walmart, as well as her ties to Tyson Foods and Goldman Sachs, Clinton has a long history being a “corporate player” and, to someone like Tom Donahue and his global business backers, that is just fine.
