There’s no way. I imply, President Biden is really challenged and you know others are pulling the strings in every way, but anything we touch practically is ending up being hazardous, whether it be Afghanistan, the border, all the different things, the energy on and on and on … I think President Trump will be the candidate and I think he’ll be our next president, and I’m very enthusiastic about it.”
