Eddie Devine voted for President Donald Trump because he thought he would be good for American business. Now, he says, the Trump administration’s restrictions on seasonal foreign labor may put him out of business.
“I feel like I’ve been tricked by the devil,” said Devine, owner of Harrodsburg-based Devine Creations Landscaping. “I feel so stupid.”
I love these stories about people who voted for Trump and then later had regrets. Especially folks who think that voting for Trump (or any Republican) is going to be an instant-savior to their business.
The entire Republican position on small business is survival of the fittest. If you run a good business, you will succeed. If you did not succeed it is because your business was not good enough and/or you did not work hard enough. THEY DO NOT HIDE THIS PHILOSOPHY ON SMALL BUSINESS.
