“Local people know who they are when they go for groceries and everything else and I think what Wilbur (Ross) was probably trying to say it that they will work along. I know banks are working along if you have mortgages – the mortgagees – the folks collecting the interest and those things, I know they’re working along. And that’s what happens in times like these. They know these people, they’ve been dealing with them for years, and they work along.” – Donald Trump, speaking from the White House.
