On Thursday, President Donald Trump tweeted a photo of himself at a football game with a giant, glowing, gold football helmet that read “Dismaled State Of Government.”
Trump has repeatedly claimed that the United States is in a “D.C. state of disrepair.”
While Trump’s tweet was meant to be a humorous jab at the current political situation, it is no laughing matter for the nation’s largest business.
“It is not good for business,” said Bill Pappas, chairman of the Business Roundtable, an industry group.
“The public perception is that businesses are not a priority.
They are not really a priority in this country.”
Pappis and other industry experts agree that businesses, not just government, are the major obstacle to the country’s economic recovery.
“They are going to keep spending and they are going not to be able to create jobs because the country is in such a state of collapse,” Pappos said.
“We’re not going to have a sustainable economy.
The public perception of the country as being in a state where business is a priority is just not true.”
In the past, Trump has taken a very public stance against business and government.
During the presidential campaign, Trump promised to cut taxes for the rich and corporations.
But he later changed his stance, saying he would “make it harder for people to leave the country,” and that he would impose tariffs on imports from countries that were hurting the United State.
While the president has not yet taken his proposed cuts to business to the American people, many of his administration’s policies are designed to help the wealthy.
In May, Trump signed an executive order called the “America First” executive order, which aims to “increase economic and trade protectionism and the protection of our domestic companies.”
The order also directed the secretary of commerce to “immediately implement a new rule requiring all American companies that are American owned and operated to disclose their owners to the U.S. Treasury Department.”
Under the order, U.A.E. companies must provide information about their foreign ownership to the Treasury Department.
And the order also instructed the secretary to “adopt new guidance to provide additional incentives for U.K. businesses to locate and grow in the United Kingdom and create more U.D.I. jobs.”
This is not the first time Trump has made business a priority during his administration.
In December, he signed an order calling for a “surge” of the U
