Ford declares 'I'm a big Republican' but questions Trump on trade protectionism - 2019-09-20
Ford, who last year said there was "not a doubt in my mind" he would have voted for Trump, took aim at protectionist policies during a stop in Columbus, the state capital where he held a roundtable discussion with businesses and met with Gov. Mike DeWine, a Republican.
"God bless the president and don't get me wrong. Full disclosure: I'm a big Republican, I'm a supporter, conservative-minded and Jason's probably more conservative than I am," said the premier, who was appearing with Alberta Premier Jason Kenney before a business audience.
