Trump Encourages Americans to Buy Local and Support ‘Small Business Saturday’

Today, President Trump encouraged Americans to support small businesses by shopping locally for “Small Business Saturday.”

The “holiday,” which comes between “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday,” was started in 2010, and was designed to promote small businesses, who were often overlooked as large department stores offered massive holiday sales.

Since long before entering the political arena, the president has been an outspoken champion of small businesses, and stood up for them during the Obama administration’s repressive business policies.

By tweeting about Small Business Saturday, President Trump was able to create significant publicity on the relatively new “holiday,” something which will certainly help small business owners.

With Christmas just around the corner, and as we approach the end of President Trump’s first year in the White House, Americans are feeling less stress about the holidays, especially with the recovering economy.
