“I won in the rust belt and honestly, Democrats took working people for granted, I think. I mean Hillary Clinton had all these great policies, believe me, I knew they were fantastic. But there were so many of them. It was… you couldn’t… If I asked you, you know – name one, you might not be able to. Whereas Donald Trump – we’ll build the wall, we’ll renegotiate NAFTA, you know, trade etc. That trade issue was THE ISSUE.”

“When I ran for governor, I was like NAFTA and CAFTA have given us the shaft-a! And everybody knows that that’s true because everyone has seen it in every community across Michigan!”

The people wanted to put America First!
