The Wall Street Journal: Charles Koch blasts Trump’s protectionist trade policies in video

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Billionaire Charles Koch warned against protectionism Sunday at a biannual meeting of the conservative network he co-founded.

“The urge to protect ourselves from change has doomed many countries throughout history,” the 82-year-old industrialist said in a video shown to donors attending the meeting. “This protectionist mindset has destroyed countless businesses.”

Koch officials at times stepped up criticism of the White House on such areas as immigration and trade policy, although they avoided direct criticism of the White House in a Sunday morning presentation to donors at the three-day retreat at a luxury resort. Instead the officials bashed the GOP on the $1.3 trillion spending bill passed in March.
