This month's KPC Word on Campus

If you could spend 20 minutes with President Trump, what would the topic of discussion be and why?

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Photo of Kaela Jiron

I would ask him why he doesn’t believe in climate change. I’d maybe ask if any of his staff argue with him, if they ever try to talk sense into him and prove themselves right.

– Kaela Jiron, KBC

associate of arts, emphasis business management

Photo of Jakob Richter

I’d probably just make small talk because there’s no point in trying to argue with him.

– Jakob Richter, KBC

bachelor of psychology, EMT accredited classes

Photo of Shannon Reid

I’d talk to him about the beautiful place I grew up in Homer, Alaska, and I’d invite him on a kayak trip so he can experience the beauty of Alaska, in hopes that it would influence his environmental policy.

– Shannon Reid, KBC

non-degree seeking, EMT accredited classes

Photo of Koby Etzwiler

I would want to discuss the issue of him not acknowledging climate change as a problem. I would want to know why he doesn’t think it’s an issue, and I would try to change his mind. I’d also want to ask even if climate change isn’t real, what is the worst that could happen if we did try to fix it?

– Koby Etzwiler, KBC

I would ask President Trump what his thoughts are on opening ANWR.

– Miles George, AES

associate of applied science, process technology

Photo of Nathan Grilley

If I had 20 minutes to talk with President Trump it would probably be about what his best and worst business deals have been and how he handled those experiences. I would also ask if he wanted an intern.

– Nathan Grilley , KRC

associate of applied science, industrial process instrumentation

It would probably be on immigration. I see the reason why he is doing it. It is necessary to protect us Americans from terrorism but it breaks my heart for the immigrants that are good people. The good honest people trying to get help, work hard, and make something for themselves.

– Aubrey Duncan, KRC

undeclared

I would ask him how he is going to contribute to Alaska’s ability to develop its resources with minimal federal obstruction due to politics.
