LA CROSSE – Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) – the combined state chamber and manufacturers’ association, and the largest business association in the state – announced on Tuesday its endorsement of President Donald Trump at a rally in La Crosse.
“WMC and the business community stand behind President Trump’s policy agenda,” said WMC President & CEO Kurt Bauer. “Prior to COVID-19, President Trump’s policies helped create robust economic growth, and throughout 2020, his policies have put Wisconsin and the nation back on the path to prosperity.”
WMC’s endorsement on Tuesday highlighted numerous accomplishments of the President’s first term:
- Tax cuts, regulatory reform and pro-growth energy policies helped Wisconsin businesses create nearly 60,000 jobs in the first three years of Trump’s presidency – over 15,000 of which were high-paying manufacturing careers
- Pro-America trade policies like the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) opened up new markets for Wisconsin businesses and solidified billions of dollars in exports from manufacturers and dairy producers
- Much-needed tax reform returned roughly $1,400 a year to the median Wisconsin household
- Commonsense energy policies have protected the environment while reducing costs for Wisconsin businesses and families
“We are already seeing a swift rebound following the most significant economic downturn in our country’s history,” added Bauer. “Wisconsin is a state that makes and grows things. We need a President who understands that and puts our workers, our businesses and our state first. President Trump has a proven record of doing just that and deserves our vote on November 3rd.”
