CNN reports that Trump said that McCarthy, who is running to replace Speaker of the House
“I would like to see someone that’s very tough and that can negotiate with the Democrats, and I don’t know that he’s that person,” explained Trump. “We need somebody that’s a very, very tough, smart, cunning person. I don’t know that that’s him, and obviously this statement hurt him pretty badly in the eyes of some, unfortunately.”
Trump was referring to McCarthy’s statement regarding the House Select Committee on Benghazi, saying the committee has damaged Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers. McCarthy’s statement created controversy, as some Republicans countered that hurting Clinton’s poll numbers wasn’t why the Select Committee on Benghazi was formed.
Trump suggested that McCarthy’s statement could be “taken both ways,” but Democrats and Clinton are “running with it” to damage Republicans.
“Certainly he’s not off to a great start,” said Trump. “I watched that (comment), actually, and I was a little surprised by it. … It would have been nice if he didn’t say it, certainly, because then there would be no dispute.”
MCCarthy is going to be just like Boehner I promise you. He is NOT what we need. Trey Gowdy is the person who has the toughness to stand up to the democrats! This is a bad idea McCarthy. Trump is Right!
Just what we need, another leader in Congress from the land of fruits and nuts. Remind you of some one, how about Nutty Nancy????????????
McCarthy is a RINO wimp, not to mention he is stupid!! We need to get rid of Obamas butt boy Boehner and all of the rest of the butt boys and girls in both houses of congress.
We need someone like this.
