Something a little different this week – two Republicans weigh in on Trump’s foreign policy and the global issues facing whoever is elected president.


Former ambassador Mike Ussery says Trump’s outrageous statements are  causing foreign policy problems he may not intend to. Trade expert Clyde Prestowitz served in both the Reagan and first Clinton administrations. He says whoever is elected has to make globalization as important an issue as national security. And Congresswoman Joyce Beatty tells Bill Press about the presidential campaigns in her swing state of Ohio.
