    No chief executive at the nation’s 100 largest companies had donated to RepublicanDonald Trump’s presidential campaign through August, a sharp reversal from 2012, when nearly a third of the CEOs of Fortune 100 companies supported GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

    During this year’s presidential primaries, 19 of the nation’s top CEOs gave to other Republican candidates, including former Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of campaign donations.

    Since then, most have stayed on the sidelines, with 89 of the 100 top CEOs not supporting either presidential nominee, and 11 backing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. A total of 66 CEOs sat out the 2012 campaign, according to the Journal’s calculation.

    So none of the evil capitalist pig CEO'S support him? I don't think they supported Bernie either.

    And if they had given to him you would accuse him of being in their pocket - win win for you and your - uh - position.

    No. I think it is funny when libs rant and do rave about evil CEO's and corporations but suddenly agree with them when they apparently don't like Trump.

    Here's my...er..position: Trump is raging dumpster fire. Hillary is the embodiment of all that is wrong with politics. Finally, it is AWESOME when one of my liberal brothers here appeals to Corporate CEO'S as an authority.

    P.S. I do really hope Bernie enjoys his third luxury home.

    :Roflmao Of course not. They don't like his corporate tax proposals even a little bit.

    And if they did, you'd be talking about how they are corrupting the political process with their money. You abide George Soros and Bloomberg, but tear into the Koch brothers.

    Well, it is good to see that CTB admits Hillary is bought and paid for by big business while Trump is his own man and not owned by Wall Street pirates.

    And who is that man. As Trump changes what he says daily it makes a person wonder who he really is ... of course maybe even he does not know.

    Well, the heads of the Fortune 100 are pretty savvy men. If Trump had anything about him that wold be good for the economy some would have been for him.

    The title of this thread is
    "No Fortune 100 CEOs Back Republican Donald Trump"
    I think you meant Fortune 500

    And like I wrote above, you'd be after them for backing him. There'd be talk about plutocrats backing one of their own. Can't have it both ways.
