Brown: Have you heard from the President or anyone from the White House about this?
Pierce: No, I'm kind of surprised that they haven't. Normally you know-the stuff- hot button issues kinda hits the forefront you know-maybe get a call or something, but um.. I haven't heard from them...
"If he was against the ports deal, I don't know if I would've written the letter." The White House refused to comment on the letter writing. The president's nephew is familiar with Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. His father's company, Austin-based Ignite Learning, has investors in the UAE, and Neil Bush has taken his son there. Pierce Bush insisted his latest letter had nothing to do with his father's business interests.
