“Americans have combined human ingenuity, a market system, a tide of talented and ambitious immigrants, and the rule of law to deliver abundance beyond any dreams of our forefathers.”

“He doesn’t talk about the new president or what’s going on with politics it’s totally on the business side and what to do with investments.”
