Ted Pitts: "We need to build stronger relationships with German companies who have made a huge impact on South Carolina”

June 2, 2017

“President Trump's tweet about trade with Germany struck a nerve in a southern state he won: South Carolina. ‘This is one of those cases where the president should have gotten his facts first before he went on attack because it's just wrong,’ said Ted Pitts, who runs the Chamber of Commerce. In the Upstate region alone, there are 442 international companies -- 136 of them German. ‘We need to build stronger relationships with German companies who have made a huge impact on South Carolina and its people,’ Pitts said.”
