The big-business community in the U.S. might be preparing to back Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, according to The Intercept.

Jennifer Pierotti Lim spoke on behalf of Clinton at the Democratic National Convention. She is the co-founder of Republican Women for Hillary, and she is the director of health policy for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The Chamber is a "money laundry" for the largest multinational corporation, and its lobbying budget usually goes toward defeating Democrats, the Intercept report said.

Lim said more Republicans appear to be siding with Clinton.

"She wants to reduce the red tape and regulation on America's small businesses, and I think that's a starting point for a lot of Republicans," Lim said.

Lim's husband has a multimillion-dollar contract with the Clinton campaign, according to CNN.

The Intercept report said that Chamber of Commerce president Tom Donohue had said he was undecided between supporting Clinton or Donald Trump. Donohue criticized Trump for being against trade deals including the Trans-Pacific Partnership and NAFTA (the North American Free Trade Agreement.)

Lim said she was not sure whether Clinton would support TPP. "I know that she has changed her position a little bit recently on it, but I think she will go back towards the middle on TPP."

Clinton has called the TPP "the gold standard in trade agreements," but did not fully endorse it. Her former opponent Bernie Sanders was against the deal.

Donohue predicted that Clinton would be in favor of the deal if she were elected, according to The Huffington Post.

"You get a little practical if you ever get the job," Donohue said.
