Deval Patrick on Foreign Policy

Democratic Governor (MA) and presidential contender

 


Crime for Trump to ask Ukraine to investigate Biden

Patrick has issued no policy proposals regarding U.S. policy toward Russia, though he criticizes Trump for his willingness to solicit foreign interference in U.S. elections.

He says that Trump's request that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky investigate fellow presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden is "a crime in and of itself" and calls for Trump's impeachment.

1978: Rockefeller fellow on UN Development Program in Sudan

The Michael Clark Rockefeller Traveling Fellowship was established to enable an individual to spend a year in a distinctly non-Western culture. I chose Sudan. All I knew was that Sudan was the largest country in Africa as well as the poorest.

As a Rockefeller fellow, I was responsible for creating much of my own program, and that meant finding an employer. I wrote to everyone I knew with a contact in Africa, specifically in Sudan. Relief agencies, banks, universities, volunteer organizations--you name it. I sent scores of letters and received one reply. A man who worked for a UN Development Programme project in Khartoum wrote a friendly letter saying that he was not sure what I would do when I got there, but he would figure it out and I should come. I set about applying for my 1st passport.
