Quotes

  • EDUCATION – “I’m interested in public education. I think the education system is going in the wrong direction, and if you want to help people a better education is what they need. The spoils are going to go to the people that are better educated, and we’re doing a terrible job particularly among poor people who are not getting the education they need to work themselves out of poverty. They are in this cycle. Their families were poor… Their grandparents family…. go back. We’ve got to get them out of that cycle. Education is they key, and our school systems are getting worse not better. We’ve got to find programs where people can get jobs. We’ve got to create jobs in a world where artificial intelligence and other technologies are destroying jobs. But there are opportunities to do it. There are a number of ways you can encourage people to move to a better job or become more productive, and we [also] have policies that restrict you from doing that or discourage you from doing that.” – Source: Face the Nation, YouTube 22 Apr 2018.

But this all seems like a much more possible outcome than I thought was remotely conceivable even a week or so ago.” [More…]
