President Trump said Monday that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce was critical of his tariffs and immigration policies because it doesn’t represent the interests of the country.

“We lose a fortune with virtually every country. They take advantage of us in every way possible and the U.S. Chamber is right there with them,” Trump told CNBC. “I assume — I am a member with the U.S. Chamber. Maybe I’ll have to rethink that. Because, when you look at it, the chamber is probably more for the companies and the people that are members than the country.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The Chamber of Commerce favors free trade policies and has been a regular critic of Trump’s tariffs. Late last month, it threatened to take Trump to court over whether he could impose new tariffs against Mexico to force it to curb immigration.

The Washington Examiner stated that Myron Brilliant, the trade association’s executive vice president and head of international affairs, told CNBC Monday morning that the “weaponization of tariffs” was a bad idea. President Trump called in to the show unexpectedly in response to Brilliant’s statements, and quipped, “I guess he is not so brilliant.”
