"It’s time for the United states to take care of itself and not worry about what’s happening throughout the rest of the world for awhile," the Governor answers, following a question about our country's infrastructure. "You don’t go out and fight unless your own backyard is secure." That's right - it's another edition of "Ask Jesse!"
Mike from Canada asks: I’m Canadian following all the injustices that goes around in the USA. Why hasn't anyone done anything about the Federal Reserve?
They always say, “If you’ve got the money, you don’t need to worry about anything else.” And the Federal Reserve has the money.
Matt from Minnesota wants to know: How can millennials pull themselves up by the bootstraps?

Sergio from California asks: Do you fear an assassination attempt if you were to become president?
I fear getting shot if I were to run for president, because every single president that has on a campaign for peace has murdered. That’s simply a known fact.It’s not paranoia, it’s history: John F Kennedy Jr, Robert Kennedy, even Martin Luther King Jr. Malcom X and John Lennon...I know these last few were not presidential candidates, but they had huge followings and they stood for a peace as an alternative.It seems the leaders of the peace movement end up dying.That’s simply a fact.
Christopher from Michigan wants to know: What’s it going to take to get more attention to the urban plight like Flint and Detroit? Urban America gets ignored.
What it’s going to take is for us to get out of the wars, so that we can free up the money in which we can get the job done. So that we don’t have lead pipes in cities. So we don’t have infrastructures that are rotting away. It’s time for the United states to take care of itself and not worry about what’s happening throughout the rest of the world for awhile. You don’t go out and fight unless your own backyard is secure. And right now, our own backyard is far from secure. We better take care of our backyard before we venture out into unchartered waters.
