Who Said It Best (And Worst) rounds up the week’s best and worst quotes from notable Milwaukee figures and folks-about-town.
SAID IT BEST
The Washington Post, on President Trump’s on-again, off-again visit to the Harley-Davidson factory in Menomonee Falls [Washington Post]:
“But workers said preparations for the president were well underway. Nearly a week after he signed an executive order barring citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries and refugees from entering the United States, Trump was quietly scheduled to touch down in the Rust Belt state, which flipped from blue to red in the 2016 election. Secret Service members had cleared rooms in a Hilton hotel in Milwaukee, and agents had already toured the Harley-Davidson facility in Menomonee Falls, said a hotel worker and two factory employees, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because their employers had not authorized them to talk to the media.”
SAID IT WORST
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, on President Trump’s on-again, off-again visit to the Harley-Davidson factory in Menomonee Falls [Washington Post]:
“Look, it was easier for the executives to come here, considering the week and all of the activity that’s been going on. No decision had been made about or announced as to what we were doing.”
