Texas businessman, pastor, and lesser-known Republican presidential candidate Ryan Binkley is getting to know New Hampshire voters and participated in a town hall at New England College Wednesday.

Binkley and his campaign staff grabbed the attention of college students by handing out stickers, Koozies, and two kinds of hats, one embroidered with the word ‘Believe’ and the other with the abbreviation “WTF.”

‘WTF’ stands for Way to Freedom, Binkley said, but acknowledged it also caters to the younger generation.

“Believe is the pastor side of my life and ‘WTF’ is my business side,” he told the audience.

Binkley, 55, voiced concerns about the state of the country and referenced the need for the next generation to create change.

“I think he’s very likable, he’s younger, which a lot of poeple have been wanting. We’ve been wanting younger President,” said Tess Anderson, a sophomore at NEC.

“He’s kind of funny, I can see why people like him, but I don’t,” said Charlie Metcalf, a student at NEC.

Binkley said government spending, healthcare costs, and the cost of education is hurting the younger generation.

“I don’t want to hand you a divisive culture and $50 trillion in debt,” he said.

Binkley blames the lack of southern border security on the increase of drugs in the United States.

“How many people have to die a day before Republicans and Democrats are going to solve a crisis?” he said.

On energy, he supports using all available resources, including nuclear.

“One of the biggest things the federal government can do is get out of the way,” Binkley said.

When asked about the 2020 election and claims of fraud by former President Donald Trump, Binkley said he hasn’t seen evidence of wrongdoing, but blames social media for censorship that may have impacted the outcome. Binkley will support Trump if he wins the republican nomination.

Binkley supports the 2nd Amendment but called for better mental health.

He supports the overturning of Roe v. Wade, calling it a state issue. As a father of 5, one of whom is adopted, he wants the adoption process to be easier and more affordable.

Binkley called for more parental involvement in education and for America to support the concept of ‘love your neighbor.’

“I believe we have more in common than we think,” Binkley said.
