Koch Network Opposes Many Trump Policies
Charles Koch has a large network of wealthy Americans who have contributed at least $100,000 per year to his organization. Many in Congress have been financially supported by the Koch network. At the annual meeting of the Koch Network several concerns were raised about The Donald. The core area of disagreement is about the ideology at the core of the Koch Network. The Koch brothers are extreme libertarians who oppose government intervention in the free market economy that joins them together. They support globalization and they oppose Trump's protectionist policies; they also oppose Trump's immigration policies as well as his recent ban on Muslim entry into the US. On the other hand, they support Trump's efforts to weaken agencies that regulate the energy industry and the healthcare industry. The Koch Network may turn out to be one of our most effective weapons against Trump's efforts to establish an authoritarian government under his leadership.
