Skip to comments.Chamber Of Commerce President On 2012 Republicans: Trump Not My Choice, Christie Is ‘Exciting’

Donald Trump may be extremely successful in the business world, but he already received a vote of no confidence from the president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the chief lobbying group for many influential business leaders. Thomas Donahue appeared on the Fox Business Network and when asked whether he would vote for Trump for President, Donahue bluntly said no.
Donahue dismissed Trump as a great real estate magnate and a lot of other things, but he wouldnt be my choice to be President. Instead, Donahue argues we need somebody with a broad range of global experience and somebody that folks will rally behind. One other candidate mentioned was Republican Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie, who Donahue called exciting. Donahue spent the majority of the interview discussing the harmful impact of high corporate tax rates and burdensome regulations under the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Bill; however, thats not nearly as exciting as 2012 presidential speculation.

The mental process of mainstream Repiblicans is disturbing.
When people talk about Christie as a candidate, I think about how fast he lost credibility when he started backsliding on conservative principles.
Would that be the “Open Border Hack” Chamber of Commerce?
Not sure if he is or not, but I doubt if Hitlery has anything on Christie, he being new on the scene, as she probably does on the RINOs that are still left in D.C.
Would love to know when someone is going to put her a$$ in court for the theft of almost 100 FBI files.
You got that right!
Just heard Karl Rove pontificate about Trump’s interview on BOR and raising the “birther” issue...of course Karl can’t spit enough venom about that. “It’s a distraction” - really Mr. Rove? Making sure the highest office in the land is filled by someone who is eligible to serve is a “distraction”?
I suppose Mr. Rove thinks the real issues are Charlie Sheen and Obama’s brackets...
I’m not sure Trump is serious, but he’s certainly refreshing.
As impressive as Christie is I really hope he stays in NJ for long enough to prove he’s not just a flash in the pan. Gov. Palin showed that she could walk the talk - we need to see the same from Gov. Christie.
Rove can GTH as far as I am concerned. He is part of the problem. He can take BOR with.
I was listening to Rove and I had blood shooting out of my eyes. WHAT A RINO. I am SICK TO DEATH OF THEM. Go away Mr. Rove, the TEA PARTY IS TAKING OVER.
Of course. Trump’s crazy, but according to himself, he’s not a free traitor.
