Bill Bennett: Trump Is More Conservative than Reagan as Is His Cabinet

‘And I served in Ronald Reagan’s cabinet’

BENNETT: "I think to be fair, the buck kinnization of the parties. I think Republican Party is further to the right than it was. Look, I said all along that I thought Donald Trump was the more conservative candidate than Ronald Reagan and I served in Ronald Reagan’s cabinet. And that cabinet of Donald Trump is more conservative real movement is the left. Read Ted Kennedy’s speeches on foreign policy or economics or taxes and you are absolutely right. It was what we call today centrist, moderate Democratic Party there is a question, isn’t there, Martha, whether a centrist Democrat can get nominated and succeed will he pass the muster of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. That’s part of the problem."
