The Daily 202 Live with James Hohmann and Secretary Wilbur Ross
On Friday September 8, The Washington Post’s James Hohmann sat down with U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, to discuss the Trump administration's efforts to reshape the playing field for international trade, the tax reform push and other pressing economic issues, including hurricane recovery.
U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross commented on the disbandment of President Donald Trump’s manufacturing and economic councils: “What’s sad is for business leaders to give up an opportunity to influence policy over some singular issue with which they disagree. I don’t think that’s very considered.”
U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross talks about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), saying he thinks there will be some “security and safety” protections for Dreamers, but “exactly what form it will take is a little bit hard to judge.”
John Collingwood, Senior Vice President, Federal Government Relations at Bank of America, spoke about the company's community outreach programs.
