Donald Trump talks the economy, free trade and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's opposition to his proposed trade policies.
"The problem with free trade is you need smart people making deals. We don't have good deals. Free trade is killing us," Trump said campaigning in Bangor, Maine Wednesday.
TRUMP: I was just reading where the United States Chamber of Commerce is upset with me. They usually go the Republican way. They're upset with my statements on trade. And I said let me ask you a question. Why would you be upset? why? I'm all for free trade. The problem with free trade is you need smart people making deals. We don't have good deals. Free trade is killing us...
And we won 37 states. So you go down the line and you look at what we've accomplished together Together. And I said to myself, why would the U.S. Chamber of Commerce criticize what I'm saying? Here's what I'm saying. Very simple. I'm all for free trade. It's fine. But I want Carl Icahn negotiating for me. I want the greatest businesspeople negotiating my deals, not hacks. But I'm all for free trade. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is controlled by the special interest groups. They are special interests that want the deals they want to have. They want to have TPP, trans-pacific partnership.
One of the worst deals. It will be the worst deal since NAFTA. No it will be the worst deal -- it will drain the rest of your businesses out of Maine. It will be the worst deal since NAFTA.
"The U.S. Chamber of Commerce again controlled totally by various groups of people that don't care about you whatsoever," Trump said today.
