Siegel told WFTV that it's just his "advice" and that his employees should vote for who they think is best for their family and future. Siegel said he wanted his employees to know that he believes Trump will be best for the company and the country.

"George W. won by 537 votes. You know, this could be another close election; maybe my employees can make the difference. I hope so,” Siegel said.

"David Siegel has evolved here. He's learned from his experience from his last letter. He's not making threats now, he's offering advice," said WFTV political analyst Dr. Rick Foglesong.

Siegel warned employees four years ago that people could lose their jobs if President Obama was re-elected.

There’s nothing to prevent private business owners from offering advice on who to vote for, according to WFTV.

"I'm not coercing anybody. I’m just putting out the facts as I see them. If they have respect for me like I think they do, they'll vote for Trump,” Siegel said.
