GULFPORT, Miss., May 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- American Truck Group today announced three key reasons why truckers support Donald Trump for President of the United States. American Truck Group CEO Louis Normand stated that in conversations with working truckers, he quickly noticed that the candidate's commitment to fair trade, job creation and entrepreneurship were common themes that resonated with truckers.
"We serve some the hardest working individuals in our country, the American trucker," said Normand. "And they believe that their very livelihood could be compromised by the election of Bernie Sanders, who has stated that he wants to take truckers off the road in favor of rail."
Last week, Trump secured the endorsement of House Transportation Chairman Bill Shuster (R-Pa.) who was quoted saying that Trump shares his passion for economic development, including making sure our nation's infrastructure meets the needs of our citizens. In addition, a group called Truckers for Trump vowed to send thousands of truckers to Cleveland in July in protest if the Republican National Convention is contested.
According to Normand, truckers support Trump for three key reasons:
1. Trump is committed to fair trade. With trade at the center of a trucker's very existence, they need a president who will work for a fair and level playing field. Normand says that truckers are not afraid to compete, but they need a president who will ensure they have a fair and even chance to earn a living.
2. Trump is committed to creating jobs. New employment will lead to greater consumption of goods, and those goods will be moved on America's roads by truckers. Truckers want income equality and new opportunities for all, says Normand, and Trump stands for raising every worker's prospect.
3. Trump is self-funded and embodies the entrepreneurial spirit that makes America great. Most truckers are self-employed and all are self-made. According to Normand, truckers appreciate that Trump built his companies just as they are committed to creating their own, self-sustaining businesses.
