âI donât want Moscowâs man in the White Houseâ¦ This is about the future of our country, it is about our security and hereâs a guy who apologizes for everything Vladimir Putin does and makes crazy remarks about NATO, about Syria, about nukes, about the Mosul offensive,â he said during an interview with the FOX Business Networkâs Stuart Varney.
While he is not a fan of Hillary either, he prefers her approach to foreign policy.
âHillary Clintonâs domestic policies repel me, she is awful, but she is safer for this countryâs security than Donald Trump and I think Vladimir Putin has a deep hold on Trump and we should all be much more alarmed than we are,â he said.
As for trade policy, Petersâ has a problem with what Trump is proposing. âYou want a global recession? Do you want to see your portfolio really tank? Sure, just walk away from all our trade deals,â he said.
Petersâ is also suspect of Trumpâs plan to jump start the U.S. economy.
âWhere is the plan? Show me the plan, of course we want growthâ¦ He is lying to the American people, he is lying to blue collar workers and that is the back ground I come from. The village blacksmith shop is not coming back. People need skills for the jobs of the future and this cult of Trump is going to lead a lot of places,â he said.
