I really admire journalists who can lead an interview and tell a story just as good as a game of chess – planned up-front to the smallest details, and with a cause to make the other player make a move that would destroy himself!

So it doesn’t, as you said last Sunday, create 19 million jobs. Again, Secretary Buttigieg, why mislead folks?”
