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. Instead, we’ve expressed opinions about the major issues and haven’t presumed to tell our readers, who have a variety of priorities and values, which choice is best for them. Because every presidential race is different, we revisit our no-endorsement policy every four years. We’ve never seen reason to alter our approach. Until now.

This year, the choice isn’t between two capable major party nominees who happen to have significant ideological differences. 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:

  1. Nor should they, this has been the first time in my life that someone without a clue of real life has run for President and who can’t even hold a conversation without talking about how great he is ! During my visit to BVI some of the islanders just laughed about the sadness of this lack of intelligence.
