Following the election of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) released a letter from more than 1,100 manufacturing and business leaders, including ABI, pledging to restore trust in democratic and economic institutions and to bring the country together after a divisive election. NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons also pledged manufacturers’ efforts to find ways to work together with the president-elect and the 115th Congress on the pressing issues facing the country – to be the solution. “Our country and our communities are in urgent need of healing, and that work must begin now,” said Timmons. Timmons also highlighted the importance of finding ways to work together to help grow our economy, noting that “leaders from across the country have pledged to rebuild trust in our democratic and economic institutions so that we can ensure our exceptional country offers abundant opportunity to all.”
