It’s not everyday the GOP presumptive nominee for president gets into a fight with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, but then again, Donald Trump has never run for office.
During his economic recovery speech yesterday, Trump ripped apart the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) trade deal, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and global elites, saying that they had stripped jobs out of the country.
Shortly after Trump’s speech, the Chamber of Commerce, which normally favors Republicans over Democrats, took to Twitter to trash the New York business mogul’s position on international trade deals.

But, Trump was quick to respond, saying he couldn’t believe the Chamber of Commerce was content seeing American jobs outsourced due to the trade deals.
Trump largely blamed former President Bill Clinton and rival Hillary Clinton for their role in supporting and signing NAFTA into law.
