“People are concerned about the direction of the country. Inflation is eating away all the profits. To give you an idea for instance, the wholesale price index - which is what businesses have to pay for their products and services at the wholesale level - is up 9.6% and the inflation rate is only 6.8%. So, it tells you we’ve got some more inflation going to happen here very shortly. 

“And this administration seems to be doubling down on all the things you shouldn’t be doing like raising taxes and overregulation.”
