Donald Trump is a business man. Where is his backing by business people? No CEOs at Fortune 100 Companies Are Backing Donald Trump.
No chief executives at Fortune 100 companies have donated to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign through August, according to a new report.
According to a Wall Street Journal analysis of campaign donations, this is a drastic difference compared to the 2012 election, when the Journal reports that nearly a third of Fortune 100 CEOs supported the then Republican nominee Mitt Romney.
What’s more, 19 of the nation’s largest 100 companies gave to the other Republican candidates, including Go. Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio, during this year’s primaries. But since Trump became the GOP’s nominee, a whopping 89 out of the 100 top CEOs have not supported either presidential candidate. The remaining 11 have backed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, the Journal reports.

The USA Today Editorial Board has never taken sides in the presidential race…Until now!
In the 34-year history of USA TODAY, the Editorial Board has never taken sides in the presidential race.

This year, one of the candidates — Republican nominee Donald Trump — is, by unanimous consensus of the Editorial Board, unfit for the presidency. To read more click on the link below:
