Q. Part of the U.S. government is shut down. Do you think we'll see an end to it soon?

All I really know is what I've seen on TV and read in the paper. I'd like to think so. I don't understand all the logic behind it, shutting down all the things people enjoy.

Q. What is it going to take to end the government shutdown?

I would say telling (President Trump) to go ahead and build your dang wall. Put the country back on its feet.

Q. Have you been affected by it?

No.

Q. Do you know someone who has been affected by it?

I guess probably not. I'd have to answer no. At least, I don't think so.

Q. Do you think we'll see more government shutdowns in the future?

As a businessman, he usually gets what he wants, but the political way of doing things is, you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours. He has the money and power to do what he wants. I hope we don't see more of it (government shutdowns).
