Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue argued that Donald Trump’s election proves not all wisdom lies in the power centers of Washington, D.C. and New York City.
On Wednesday morning, U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue delivered his annual State of American Business Address.
Towards the end of his address, Donohue argued that the election of Donald Trump as president proves not all wisdom lies in Washington, D.C.
More from the speech transcript, courtesy of the Chamber of Commerce:
Ladies and gentlemen, with their votes, Americans sent a strong message. They want a real change in the country’s economic course. They want their children and grandchildren to be able to dream big again—to really believe that the future will be better, not worse, than the past.
Americans sent another message as well—that not all the wisdom resides in Washington or in New York or in big government, big media, or even in big business.
Donohue went on to praise populism as represented by millions of employers across the country.
