CEO Frank L. VanderSloot to Obama: Why are business people the enemy? on Astini News

American entrepreneur Frank L. VanderSloot, CEO of Melaleuca, Inc., knew right away what questions he would ask President Barack Obama if given the opportunity.

"Why are business people the enemy?" VanderSloot said. "Why have you deemed business leaders as bad guys? Where are we going to get the jobs from to put Americans back to work, if we keep trying to crucify the business person?"

VanderSloot, who sits on the board of directors for the United States Chamber of Commerce, added that the president had falsely accused the Chamber of Commerce of taking money from foreign countries and using it to influence elections in the United States.

The national finance co-chair for Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign then wondered why the president refuses to let business leaders into his administration and instead relies on the advice of people who have "never done anything."

"Why don't you let the people who have led successful organizations — or the successful anythings — to help you lead this country?"

VanderSloot's full interview with Ginni Thomas will be available tomorrow, exclusively at The Daily Caller.
