Scaramucci suggests CEOs backing former president have 'Trump-nesia'

Two days after former President Trump attended the Business Roundtable’s quarterly meeting, attended by more than 80 CEOs including Apple’s Tim Cook and Blackstone’s Stephen Schwarzman, Anthony Scaramucci, former White House communications director for President Donald Trump, suggested some CEOs were falling into “Trumpnesia.”

“This is a bit of Trump hatred,” Scaramucci told Alex Witt in an MSNBC interview. “They’ve denounced him so many times, and now, for some reason, they’ve decided to switch to him now because of some little policy promise that he put forward.”

“He’s a disruptive candidate,” Scaramucci added. “I want to remind you that people were not happy when he was president.”

At the event, Trump proposed lowering the corporate tax rate. His signature tax reform plan, one of the few legislative achievements during his presidency, would have lowered the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%.

But Scaramucci said he believes President Trump is dangerous to the country because he would accelerate inflation.

“The combination of inflation and general recession that President Trump is creating is dangerous,” he said.

According to Scaramucci, Trump Plans to deport 15 million people Tariffs will be raised to 20%.

President Biden was also invited to the event, but instead attended the G7 summit in Europe, sending White House Chief of Staff Jeff Zients in his place. CNBC reported that President Trump was “wandering around” during the meeting.

“He’s much better at rallies talking about electric boats and sharks,” he added. “He’s much better at that than actually talking economic policy in front of Fortune 500 companies.”

recently, The Wall Street Journal and POLITICO It ran an article about CEOs hedging their bets and beginning to favor Trump over Biden.

But Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, director of the Yale University Chief Executive Leadership Institute, which organizes the annual CEO Business Roundtable, which many of the Business Roundtable participants attend, told The Hill that he doesn’t believe CEOs are endorsing Trump.

“Not a single Fortune 100 CEO has donated a penny to him. This distinguishes it from over a century of major CEO support for Republican presidential candidates, going back to President Taft, Coolidge, Eisenhower, Nixon, Reagan and the Bushes, all of whom consistently had more than 50 percent of major CEOs on their side,” Sonnenfeld told The Hill. “CEOs are not isolationists, protectionists or xenophobes.

“Other than a couple of prominent CEOs, no one is vocally or financially supporting Trump. This is a first in American history,” he added.

The Hill has reached out to the Trump campaign for comment.
