Tweets directed specifically to entrepreneurs

All tweets here are taken from (Forbes) and begin with the address "Entrepreneurs: "

  • "There's nothing wrong with bringing your talents to the surface. Having an ego and acknowledging it is a healthy choice."
  • "Learn to trust yourself. Being an entrepreneur is not a group effort."
  • "Look at the solution, not the problem. Learn to focus on what will give results."
  • "Identify your goals, know precisely what you want to achieve. Then study the best people in your field and learn from them."
  • "Keep the big picture in mind. There are always opportunities and possibilities & thinking too small can negate a lot of them."

Protecting American Innovation from China (Intellectual Property)

This quote is taken from Donald Trump's 4-tiered "Trump Plan" on U.S.-China Trade Reform:

"Protect American ingenuity and investment by forcing China to uphold intellectual property laws and stop their unfair and unlawful practice of forcing U.S. companies to share proprietary technology with Chinese competitors as a condition of entry to China’s market." (DTW - E&I)

Spurring Small Businesses through Lower Tax Rates

"Too many companies – from great American brands to innovative startups – are leaving America, either directly or through corporate inversions. The Democrats want to outlaw inversions, but that will never work. Companies leaving is not the disease, it is the symptom. Politicians in Washington have let America fall from the best corporate tax rate in the industrialized world in the 1980’s (thanks to Ronald Reagan) to the worst rate in the industrialized world. That is unacceptable. Under the Trump plan, America will compete with the world and win by cutting the corporate tax rate to 15%, taking our rate from one of the worst to one of the best.

This lower tax rate cannot be for big business alone; it needs to help the small businesses that are the true engine of our economy. Right now, freelancers, sole proprietors, unincorporated small businesses and pass-through entities are taxed at the high personal income tax rates. This treatment stifles small businesses. It also stifles tax reform because efforts to reduce loopholes and deductions available to the very rich and special interests end up hitting small businesses and job creators as well. The Trump plan addresses this challenge head on with a new business income tax rate within the personal income tax code that matches the 15% corporate tax rate to help these businesses, entrepreneurs and freelancers grow and prosper."
