    Better than entertaining Chinese company execs.

    Since Governor Herbert goes to Switzerland and France, he should ask Teuscher, ThuriÈs, Valrhona, Weiss et al. to operate a proper chocolate school in Utah. It is time Americans learn how to make proper chocolate, something which doesn't taste of candles made from regurgitated earwax.

    It's wonderful that Stadler has chosen Utah for their new factory. Unlike AOC, governor Herbert has the sense to make a company coming to his jurisdiction feel welcome.

    We take it for granted the good government that Utah has.

    Why does this look like watching a bad movie over again?

    You show me a Utah government official and I'll show you a European Itinerary which includes a ride on a Swiss train.

    Can Utah Trade Dirty Herbie for a native Swiss with a higher I.Q.? Swiss chocolate would work just fine.

    Gotta get in a European summer vacation before he leaves office.

    Switzerland, Paris and Italy. Herbert understands that's he's Governor of Utah and not a UTA exec, right?

    I am very enthusiastic about Governor Herbert visiting Europe. I suggest he make it a lengthy viist to get as much out of it as possible. Staying until about January, 2021 should be good.

    A man of treason and fraud should not be allowed to negotiate international trade deals without the approval of federal government. Herbert should be looking to the US companies to make trains, this traitor should have all trade deals blocked unless he can prove that a US company cannot make public trans trains in the US. . Shopping outside the continental united states is unconstitutional and illegal and Herbert's treason should make him accountable to the tax payers of Utah and governemnt of the United States.

    Herbert thinks he has the authority to muster international trade deals and illegally using tax dollars to feed his criminally insane mind. The state and federal governemnt are obligated to the business and workers of the United States and this treason and fraudulent actions make him and criminal.
