Steve Bullock in CNN "State of the Union" interviews during 2019


On Abortion: Women should decide, not government

Q: When do you think life begins?

A: I think that the Supreme Court settled this 45 years ago. And it's not my decision to be making what the decision that a woman needs to make, in consultation with her doctor and her family and her faith, if she so chooses. I would say that life begins at viability. But it's not up to people like me to be making these decisions. It's what does an individual woman need to do with her body and with her health care? Those aren't decisions that I should be making.

On Free Trade: Work with other nations to deal with China's practices

We need to be tough on China. Let's not kid ourselves on that. But 25% tariffs on all Chinese products, every American family will be hit by $2,000 in one year in increased prices. America first has become America alone. We can't do it that way. We need to bring our allies together and some of our adversaries. We need to actually enforce through the World Trade Organization, when appropriate, as well.

On Tax Reform: Many people not benefitting from economy

Q: What do you say to voters who say, economy's doing great, why vote for somebody else?

A: If you look over the last 40 years, the average American worker hasn't had a wage increase in real terms. Only half the 30-year-olds are doing better than their parents were at age 30. The guy that cleans this building paid more in taxes last year than Amazon did with $10 billion in profit. For a whole lot of folks, they're not getting a lot better because of what the Trump tax cuts.
