Richard Branson: ‘America Will Suffer’ If Free Trade Is Restricted


Tuesday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” English business investor and founder of the Virgin Group, Richard Branson warned against proposals that would restrict free trade, such as the ones Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has proposed, would make Americans “suffer.”

Partial transcript as follows:

CHUCK TODD, HOST OF MSNBC’S “MTP DAILY”: Let me shift gears here a little bit. And I’m just curious if your perspective as a global business leader. The impact of Donald Trump on the perception of America around the world.

BRANSON: It hasn’t been good. He’s come out with a lot of comments which make, I think, most people in the world feel very uncomfortable about. For one thing, free trade, you know, free trade has worked for America. And if you’re going to put up walls around America and stop free trade, America will suffer.
