Lol what a tool Trump isn't the best but he's better then any leader in the middle east. We have more civilized people in freaking Rhode Island then they have everywhere there.

Always easy for these CEO's to bash Trump since they know there won't be any real repercussions, but whenever they have a chance to put their money where their mouth is then they all become moral relativists.
