This is in a message to my town from my congressional representative, Rep. Bruce Poliquin (R, Maine):
“Continuing our work from last Congress, I joined forces with Senators Collins and King to fight to ensure the Department of Defense uses American tax dollars to purchase American made products, like the shoes made by the nearly 900 hardworking Mainers at New Balance.

It would have been nice if he had said something about how the troops now will get higher quality shoes to help them train and win our fights. But I don’t know if they do.

"I have plans on Afghanistan that if I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the Earth," Trump said on Monday at the White House. "It would be gone. It would be over in – literally in 10 days. And I don't want to do that. I don't want to go that route."
