Small Business Owner to Undecided Voters: Donald Trump is a Recession Waiting to Happen
Washington, D.C.- Today Main Street Alliance (MSA) released its first political web ad, featuring MSA Executive Committee member and small business owner Kelly Conklin. Polling suggests Donald Trump’s path to the presidency must include winning New Hampshire. That is why it is so important to Kelly and Main Street Alliance that voters in the Granite State hear the voice of real small business owners before casting their ballots.
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, makes his case against a Trump presidency.
“Donald Trump is a recession waiting to happen,” Kelly 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 MSA, 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.”
