The United States pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord was not popular with everyone, but supporters on the Republican side of the spectrum were pleased.

Congressman Jim Renacci was one of those Republicans, and he joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to discuss it. Renacci says being part of the climate accord would have been a costly endeavor for the US, and the focus should be domestic. The former Wadsworth mayor is happy to see jobs in the coal industry making a comeback.

Rep. Renacci also touched on the attacks in London, calling them “heartbreaking.” He has been a staunch supporter of the Travel Ban, and attacks such as London and Manchester prove why the United States needs to be protected.

Much like the president, Renacci has not always been a politician. Recently, he was endorsed by Bikers For Trump and Citizens For Trump, and he shared the gratitude he has for his supporters early on in his race for the governorship.

News out of Washington over the last week has been divisive and partisan, and politicians from both sides have not been shy to weigh in.

One of those politicians is Ohio senator Sherrod Brown, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show on Thursday. As for the recent firing of FBI director James Comey, Brown questions the timing of Comey’s firing, calling it “troubling.” Brown also believes it's “pretty clear" about the ties between President Trump and Russia.

Commenting on the new healthcare bill, the Ohio senator says he has “no idea” what will happen as time goes on, but will “fight like hell” to oppose the bill. He also shared his thoughts on NAFTA and the airline industry.
