Every four years, TransLaw asks the presidential candidates for their positions on key transportation matters, not always fully covered in the main stream media. The Clinton and Trump Campaigns have provided us with the following statements.
With the exception of a few issues, neither Clinton nor Trump has offered any position papers. Here’s what the major candidates have stated on aviation issues. Please take the time to be involved in the campaign(s) of whichever candidate(s) reflect your views.
Let us clarify President Trump’s authority of reducing aircraft noise from Palm Beach International Airport (PBIA) over his lucrative Mar-a-Lago Club.
Trump claimed the GOP race is rigged. While voter registration problems have been a target of his campaign, FAA registration issues may literally ground it.
Is the ONLY reason Trump wants to be president is to divert planes away from Mar-a-Lago?
It is time NOW to begin trying to have the 2016 Presidential Candidates hear about aviation issues. This is an important message; unfortunately, only one candidate’s record provided a useful example by using Mr. Trump.
