Juszkiewicz has been on the defensive since the Obama Administration began investigating his guitar company due to alleged illegal importation practices.The chief executive of the Gibson Guitar Corporation has targeted President Barack Obama for being anti-business and an obstacle to job creation due to the impact that the current Administration has had on his company, Fox News reported.

Henry Juszkiewicz has noted that Obama and his Administration have limited the competitiveness of his company due to regulations that have been imposed and the difficulty that comes with trying to obtain foreign labor, according to the news outlet.

“It’s not easy to compete on a global basis,” Juszkiewicz told Fox News. “We’re competing with Chinese, European companies. We’d like to feel like we’re respected and help create jobs.”

Juszkiewicz has been on the defensive since the Obama Administration began investigating his guitar company due to alleged illegal importation practices. The executive has noted that the charges have forced him to “lawyer up and lose money” in defense of what he has said to be an iconic American brand, reported the National Review.

Federal agents first raided Gibson following allegations concerning suspect wood shipments that had come from Madagascar, something that the Administration has pursued again in the time since the initial investigation, according to Fox News.
