Since President Obama took office in 2009, America has been on a path toward economic destruction.

From tax increases and wage reductions to new regulations and increased “red tape,” it has been hard for businesses, both small and large, to grow and prosper in America.

The failed economic policies of his administration have left too many Americans without jobs, without savings and with little hope.

Many small businesses nationwide have been forced to close their doors.

The reality is that the Obama administration has done little to support American businesses, and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton would only double down on his policies, providing little or no relief to struggling businesses and American families.

Often, we hear people discuss the importance of Supreme Court nominations in the upcoming election.

Meanwhile, talk about business overregulation, taxes, wage reductions and ‘red tape’ has become lost in the shuffle of today’s political chaos.

While Supreme Court nominations will certainly be critical to the future of our country, we cannot forget to think about issues sure to affect the future of our economy.

The truth is that Americans are faced with a decision this November, a decision that I realize for some of you will not be an easy one.

If the future of our Supreme Court is not enough to convince you, maybe the future of our economy will tilt your scale.

Let’s take a look at your options.

You can elect Mrs. Clinton, a candidate who will dramatically increase taxes and offer more of the same failed policies that have hurt us over the past seven years.

Or, you can elect GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, a candidate with private sector experience who will make lowering taxes, decreasing regulations and supporting American businesses an important part of his administration.

The fact remains that we need to elect a president who will provide each and every American citizen with the opportunity to succeed economically.

Mr. Trump has the potential to be that president.

Mrs. Clinton, as history has shown us, simply does not.

It is time for us to expose Mrs. Clinton as the untrustworthy candidate of the past that she is by sharing the real facts about Mr. Trump’s vision and plans with our friends, our colleagues, our families and our communities.

A vote for Mr. Trump this November is a vote for the American economy.
