WASHINGTON (Nov. 9, 2016) — Many business organizations, including the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) and the American Trucking Associations (ATA), are congratulating Donald Trump on his winning the U.S. presidency over Hillary Clinton.
The business groups, for the most part, cite President-elect Trump's promises to revive the U.S. economy for their support.
“We look forward to working with him on policies to strengthen small business, which represents 99.7 percent of all U.S. employers and which provides jobs for 58 million Americans,” NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan said.
“During the campaign, he (Trump) highlighted the need to create jobs, and recognized that improving our nation's infrastructure is critical to strengthening the economy,” according to ATA President and CEO Chris Spear, who said the ATA already has begun meeting with Trump transition team.
“As the industry that moves nearly 70 percent of our nation's freight and is a key economic driver, we look forward to working with President-elect Trump on a host of issues, including long-term, sustainable infrastructure funding, tax reform and fair and free trade.”
