President Donald Trump says that small business is the “engine of the American dream”. Trump hosted an event this week at the White House to note the importance of small businesses to the American economy and to gather feedback from entrepreneurs.
Trump also promised to keep moving forward on rolling back regulations put in place by previous administrations and moving forward on tax cut legislation.
Trump was joined at the event by the head of the Small Business Administration Linda McMahon and his daughter and senior advisor, Ivanka.
Some members of Congress also attended. More than 100 small businesses were in attendance, according to information provided by the White House.
“Your stories demonstrate what it takes to succeed,” he told entrepreneurs. “America is on the verge of a golden age for small business.”
