Jun 26 2017 - NAFTA

I see this as an opportunity to allow an American natural resource to help bolster both countries' economies. The overall goal of the Trump administration is to sell what Americans make to bolster this economy. If you are selling it to a partner, a neighbor, even better.feedback

Jun 26 2017 - NAFTA

Everybody in the private sector is going to look after their interests and their stockholders' interests. I get that, and that's fine and good.

Apr 30 2016 - Republican Party

He offers a barking carnival act that can be best described as Trumpism: A toxic mix of demagoguery and mean-spiritedness and nonsense that will lead the Republican Party to perdition if pursued.
