Donald J. Trump, President of the USA

agrees Fracking
Fracking will lead to American independence. With price of natural gas continuing to drop, we can be at a tremdendous advantage.

Donald J. Trump, President of the USA

I’m a conservative on most issues but a liberal on this one … We must have universal healthcare …We need, as a nation, to reexamine the single-payer plan.

Donald J. Trump, President of the USA

agrees Tariffs
I have just authorized a doubling of Tariffs on Steel and Aluminum with respect to Turkey as their currency, the Turkish Lira, slides rapidly downward against our very strong Dollar!

Obama's attack on the internet is another top down power grab. Net neutrality is the Fairness Doctrine. Will target conservative media.

Donald J. Trump, President of the USA

disagrees Electronic voting
It's old-fashioned — but it's always good to have a paper back-up system of voting.

What to do about mass unemployment? This is going to be a massive social challenge. There will be fewer and fewer jobs that a robot cannot do better [than a human]. These are not things that I wish will happen. These are simply things that I think probably will happen.

Bill Gates, Philanthropist. Founder and former CEO of Microsoft.

I am in the camp that is concerned about super intelligence. First the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent...A few decades after that though the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern.

Bill Gates, Philanthropist. Founder and former CEO of Microsoft.

disagrees Basic Income
Even the US isn't rich enough to allow people not to work. Some day we will be but until then things like the Earned Income Tax Credit will help increase the demand for labor.

Bill Gates, Philanthropist. Founder and former CEO of Microsoft.

I felt sure that allowing anyone to publish information and making it easy to find would enhance democracy and the overall quality of political debate. However, the partitioning you talk about which started on cable TV and might be even stronger in the digital world is a concern. We all need to think about how to avoid this problem.

Bill Gates, Philanthropist. Founder and former CEO of Microsoft.

agrees Robot Tax
Right now, the human worker who does, say, $50,000 worth of work in a factory, that income is taxed and you get income tax, social security tax, all those things. If a robot comes in to do the same thing, you’d think that we’d tax the robot at a similar level.

Bill Gates, Philanthropist. Founder and former CEO of Microsoft.

You cross the threshold of job-replacement of certain activities all sort of at once. So, you know, warehouse work, driving, room cleanup, there’s quite a few things that are meaningful job categories that, certainly in the next 20 years [will go away].

agrees Carbon Tax
Not paying carbon taxes is like not paying for garbage collection.

Bill Gates, Philanthropist. Founder and former CEO of Microsoft.

Vaccines do more than save lives: they can also reduce the use of antibiotics and slow the spread of resistance.

agrees Basic Income
I think we'll end up doing universal basic income. It's going to be necessary.

Bill Gates, Philanthropist. Founder and former CEO of Microsoft.

agrees Carbon Tax
The push is the R&D, the pull is the carbon tax. Yes, the government will be somewhat inept, but the private sector is in general inept. How many companies do venture capitalists invest in that go poorly? By far most of them.

I will not support or endorse a carbon tax!

More than 120 retired generals and admirals recently wrote a letter to Congress arguing that U.S. aid programs are critical to preventing conflict and reducing the need to put our men and women in uniform in harm’s way.

Donald J. Trump, President of the USA

agrees Brexit
I think the migration has been a horrible thing for Europe… A lot of that has been pushed by the EU. I would say that [the UK is] better off without it, personally.

the benefits to the UK of being in [the EU], in my view, greatly exceed the benefits of being out.
