Rudy Giuliani tied to Trans Texas Corridor, "NAFTA Superhighway" (CNN/Youtube debate)
Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.
Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.
If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.
Rudy Giuliani claimed that he'd never heard of the "NAFTA Superhighway" but his law firm is deeply involved in the Texas leg of the project.
Here's a relatively mild question I put together for the upcoming CNN/Youtube debate about that discrepancy; please go to his campaign appearances and try to ask him this question:
"NAFTA Superhighway" is the term some use for the apparent plan to build a massive transportation system running through the middle of the U.S. It would allow cheap Chinese goods to be shipped directly to the U.S. and Canada from non-unionized Mexican ports, bypassing U.S. ports on the west coast.
Giuliani's law firm (Bracewell & Giuliani) represents a major company (Cintra from Spain) involved in the Texas leg of the Superhighway, called the "Trans Texas Corridor".
Was Giuliani not aware of his firm's involvement, or was he just "confused" over the term "NAFTA Superhighway"?
