"Donald Trump is a Recession Waiting to Happen": A Small Business Owner's Appeal to Undecided Voters
By: Main Street Alliance Action Fund
A poll conducted in September found nearly 60 percent of small business owners siding with Donald Trump. With less than two weeks until Election Day, Conklin, owner of Foley-Waite LLC, a woodworking company in Kenilworth, New Jersey, made his case against a Trump presidency.
"Donald Trump is a recession waiting to happen," Conklin says. "And on November 8th you have a choice, whether we are going to go ahead on a steady course or whether we are going to plunge the country into one of its darkest eras ever. The master of disaster or a proven entity who can do the job."
Amanda Ballantyne, National Director of MSAAF, said Trump's behavior and business practices inspired the group to speak up.
"Donald Trump's rhetoric throughout the election has been toxic and dangerous. His almost glib explanations for his tax avoidance and bad business practices, and shirking small business owners he works with shows a misunderstanding of what it takes to make our economy thrive," said Ballantyne. "For that reason, we can no longer sit on the sidelines. We worked with our members to produce this video expressing the concerns of real small business owners who have earned their success by doing business the right way."
