U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump takes the stage at a campaign rally in BangorBy Ginger Gibson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Presidential candidate Donald Trump on Wednesday lashed out at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's scathing criticism of his stance on trade, highlighting divisions within the Republican Party that threaten unity ahead of the Nov. 8 election. At a campaign rally in Maine on Wednesday, Trump called the nation's largest business association "controlled totally by various groups of people who don’t care about you whatsoever." He said new trade deals should be negotiated because foreign countries are taking advantage of America. "Every country that we do business with us look at us as the stupid people with the penny bank," Trump said Wednesday at the rally in Bangor, Maine.
