“I am sure that CEOs are concerned about a runaway National Debt, because it would wreck the economy and therefore hurt their bottom line.”

Your own link doesn’t indicate this. To the extent that a CEO is concerned about Trump’s econ plan, I would expect that they are far more concerned with the possibility of retaliatory tariffs than they would be with a 25% in national debt (which would not take us to historically high levels, it should be said) which any political observer knows would be DOA in Congress.

“I refute your assertion that CEOs are concerned about Trump forcing them to hire American workers.”

We actually know this is the case, especially in the technology sector, which has a heavy reliance on H1B visa holders.

“but Tim Cook is not worried about building iPhones in the USA because Trump forced him to.”

True, but he IS concerned with not being able to bring over hundreds of Indians and having to pay them 4X what he is currently paying them.
