Senator Sherrod Brown reacts to Trump tweets

It’s been a big week in Washington.

On Friday, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown stopped by WKYC studios to talk with WKYC's Andrew Horansky about the subjects making headlines.

From President Trump’s most recent tweets involving the press, to the firing of FBI Director James Comey, it was a lively and topical conversation.

Brown said that the story about the firing of James Comey seems to change nearly every day. Brown said Trump has already fired three people.

Referring to President Donald Trump's tax records, Brown said "I want the President to release what he needs to release ...so we can move on.."

Brown said the atmosphere in Washington right now about the topics being focused upon "...it is so much of the oxygen sucked out of the room..." and Congress needs to focus on what really matters to the American people and "...it's unfortunate that it keeps Congress from doing its job..."

Brown said there are two things people can do to let Congress know about how they feel about repealing the Affordable Care Act.

First, they should write to their members of Congress and tell them what the affect it would have on them. Second, if there is a specific problem, Ohioans should call his office. (The office phone number is TOLL FREE 1-888-896-6446)

Brown also touched on NAFTA and said he has sent a four-point plan to President Trump.

It includes not playing one group of union workers against another, make sure there are workers at the table and not just corporate representatives, have stronger "Buy American" provisions and provisions where a company can't turn against workers.
