Ratner: "Had I Known I Would Have Never Shown"

An Agawam business owner is facing  backlash for appearing in a photo with President Trump and others for  the president's signing of an executive order focusing on health care  last week. 

Dave Ratner, who owns Dave's Soda and Pet City, has received  hundreds of negative business reviews following his visit to the White  House with other small business leaders for the signing, which focused  on rolling back provisions of the Affordable Care Act. 

However, Ratner says he thought the executive order was to be focused on  helping small businesses, and says he never would have attended if he  had known what the order's true focus was on. 

Ratner says he's  embarrassed by the situation and has apologized to his customers.
