RECORDS. WE ARE ABOUT TO HAVE THIS CONVERSATION ON THIS PROGRAM ANYWAY. IF YOU FOLLOW THE PRESIDENT ON A REGULAR BASIS, ESPECIALLY HIS POLITICAL RALLIES, HE LIKES TO MAKE THE ARGUMENT, EVEN PEOPLE WHO DON'T LOVE HIM PERSONALLY, STILL HAVE TO VOTE FOR HIM. HE USUALLY CITE THE ECONOMY. HE WOULD BE A BETTER CHOICE IN HIS INTENTIONAL ON HIS. WHEN THERE IS A RECENT NEW YORK TIMES PIECE THAT YOU LOOK INTO THIS PHENOMENON HAS SOME EXECUTIVES IN SMALL COMPANIES HAVE MADE RESERVATIONS ABOUT THE PRESIDENT BUT HAVE BIGGER CONCERNS ABOUT BERNIE SANDERS AND ELISABETH WARREN. WERE JOINED NOW BY MICHAEL BRADY. HE IS WITH EXPRESS EMPLOYMENT BUSINESS. I POINT OUT THAT ARTICLE BECAUSE MICHAEL WAS QUOTED, IN IT AND I DON'T KNOW IF YOU ARE LISTENING BUT THE ARGUMENT WAS BASICALLY, YOU MAY NOT LOVE ME, BUT YOU HAVE TO VOTE FOR ME. NAME DID THAT LAST TIME. WHEN YOU VOTED FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA TIME BEFORE THAT. SO WHAT GOES INTO YOUR THINKING AND WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING AT AS YOU GET SET FOR THE 2020 ELECTION. WE YOU BOTH FOR NEXT TIME. >> FOR ME, I AM LOOKING AT WHAT WILL HELP MY BUSINESS. WHAT WILL HELP ME PROSPER. SOME OF THE REGULATIONS FROM PRE- NEWS PREVIOUS MINUTE ADMINISTRATION MADE IT REALLY TOUGH FOR SMALL BUSINESSES. AND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP, HE IS VERY PRO-BUSINESS. SOMETIMES THE WAY HE SAYS THINGS TO MAKE YOU CRINGE, BUT WHEN IT COMES TO OPERATING A BUSINESS, HE MAKES IT A LITTLE EASIER TO BE SUCCESSFUL. >> SO THAT IS THE BIGGEST FACTOR FOR YOU. AND YOU WILL VOTE FOR HIM FOR REELECTION OR A NO SHIRT. >> I ABSOLUTELY WILL BECAUSE WHEN I LOOK AT THE DEMOCRATIC FIELD, QUITE FRANKLY, IT FRIGHTENS ME. WHEN YOU LOOK AT SOME OF THE PLANS TO FREE THIS OR GIVE THIS AWAY, I UNDERSTAND WHERE THE MONEY HAS TO COME FROM. IN ORDER TO GROW THE GOVERNMENT, THEY HAVE TO TAX THE PEOPLE. THAT DOES NOT HELP SMALL BUSINESS GROW WHICH IN TURN HELPS PEOPLE FIND EMPLOYMENT WHICH HELPS THE ECONOMY TOGETHER. >> WHAT MAKES THIS CONVERSATION INTERESTING, YOU VOTED FOR BARACK OBAMA WHICH WAS A DEMOCRAT. AND NOW TO PRESENT TRUMP. ONE OF THE THINGS I WONDER ABOUT AND I REFERENCE BERNIE SANDERS AND ELISABETH WARREN, THOSE ARE FAR ON THE LEFT AND YOU BE MORE OPEN TO A JOE BIDEN ROOKIE. OR IS TRUMP BETTER THAN ANY OF THESE DEMOCRATS. WHAT IS YOUR THINKING. >> FROM THIS POINT, IT IS TRUMP. VERSUS THE REST. IT STRICTLY TO ME COMES DOWN TO A DOLLARS AND CENTS DECISION. WHAT MAKES SENSE FOR ME AS A BUSINESS OWNER. EVEN WITH WOOD JAZZ AND BLOOMBERG, AS A BUSINESS OWNER. I JUST DON'T SEE A PLAN FOR THEM TO HELPS FOR THE ECONOMY ON. >> THE ISSUES THAT YOU BROUGHT UP REGARDING IMPEACHMENT TRIAL IN WASHINGTON RIGHT NOW, THEY SAID SOMETHING LIKE SOME OF THE PRESIDENT HAS SAID OR DONE OVER THE YEARS HAVE MADE YOU CRINGE. YOU WORK THAT INTO YOUR THINKING OR IS NOT A BIG PART OF IT. HOW DO YOU WORK THAT OUT IN YOUR OWN MIND. >> CONNELL, IT DOESN'T REALLY PLAY A BIG PART IN MY DECISION. THERE IS SO MUCH HATE THAT COMES OUT OF POLITICS THESE DAYS. MOST AMERICANS HAVE TO GO. I UNDERSTAND FRUSTRATION ON BOTH SIDES. HE REALLY JUST HASN'T COME INTO PLAY FOR ME IS ABOUT HER. I LOOK STRICTLY AT DOLLARS AND CENTS. WHAT WILL HELP ME AND MY FAMILY. >> INVERTERS LIKE YOU WHETHER
