"And I think he deserves some latitude in terms of doing that", Kennedy said. "I do not plan on going anywhere, at any point, in August". He and Texas Sen. "Until we can have reciprocal relationships, we will not have free trade, we will not have fair trade", Kudlow said.
"A lot of senators are a lot braver since they're not on the ballot".
