Scott Walker, filled his wallet with our tax money and headed to Europe. Scott Walker failed so miserably recently when asked a question on foreign affairs that this is his way to get some street cred.

The problem with that, Scott Walker is as incompetent in increasing trade as he is in everything else he has done. Not sure if it is his lack of college degree, or that he just does not understand economics and business at all.
I am almost embarrassed for him as this is what he tweeted:
You would think that being Governor or Wisconsin he would understand that not only is Miller now owned by a joint venture called SAB Miller with the headquarters in London, England, United Kingdom. To throw salt in our Wisconsin wounds, Miller's regional office left Milwaukee and relocated in Chicago.
It is not trade when a London based company buys beer headquartered in London. It is also not surprising, that Scott Walker would once again do his best to help out a company not headquartered in Wisconsin.
I know Scott Walker does not care too much about small businesses in Wisconsin but someone might want to advise him that there are plenty of beers actually brewed and headquartered in Wisconsin.
I wonder what Illinois companies Scott Walker will be touting tomorrow?
