Why? I'll answer. It's because it's easier for you to believe that than believe the alternative; they knew and accepted ALL of that and STILL chose him over your side.
That's just the thing -- you are answering on my behalf. You already have decided what you think I believe.

I definitely don't think everyone who isn't me is fooled by Trump.

Do I think some are -- for sure.

And I have often posted that many know exactly what kind of man Trump is and they still voted for him -- because he was a REpublican -- and some may have voted for him to try something new.

Some of my favorite people voted for him and I don't think less of them.

But some how you think that's it.

I can dislike Trump and still respect someone who voted for him.

I've read enough of your posts to have a pretty good idea what you believe.

Both sides imply that the opposition is clueless.

And conservatives post the same crap over and over as well...and if you don't see that -- again -- you might be biased.

So please -- you took the high road for absolutely no reason - -you come down into the mud with the rest of us......lol.
Oh great.....we are all mud puppies !!!

Now can we get to some substance on the CoC before the pond dries up ?

Businessmen, especially those in the Chamber of Commerce, sure do understand economics! That understanding is what makes them cautious, and caution breeds conservatism, especially on economic issues.

Think on that !!!
Hillary said that the TPP was the gold standard before she flipped and agreed with Trump about how bad it was and didn't any longer support it.

Did she care about anyone when she supported it or when she rejected it or just herself in both instances ?

Clinton raved about Trans-Pacific Partnership before she rejected it ...

So what? Clinton isn't running! Who cares what she said years ago? It doesn't apply to the present at all.

The Chamber of Commerce is strongly pro-trade. That's what commerce is. Trade in goods and services.

And let's revisit Trump's suggestion that the Commerce represents 'corporations' -- implying big business.

Across the country the local Chambers of Commerce and the national chapter represent more the small to medium size corporations.

Large corporations may choose to join as a gesture of good will, etc. but they don't really participate in the programs and activities offered up.

Trump takes on the Chamber of Commerce as all three including media and democrats fail to recognize Trump's brilliant use of tariffs.
Oh I recognize the brilliant use of Tariffs...the last time we enacted so many tariffs it ushered in
a Great Depression! (I won't go into the fact that that is contrary to Free Trade and Capitalism)

These threads are are a great example of how far some will lower themselves to in order to defend Trump.
