Bill Kristol: ‘Trump Is the Least Republican Republican President’

‘He gave money to Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer’

KRISTOL: "Generally President Trump doesn't honor previous restraints that presidents have mostly followed about not attacking all civil servants as being one party or the other. I guess this is to appeal to his base. Trump is the least Republican Republican president. He has no history in the Republican Party or the conservative movement. He gave money to Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer. He's adopted the most crass version of conservative, really dumb kind of conservative talking points. We don't like the government. We're the anti-government party. Every one that works for the government is Democrat. It's a very -- it's the stupidest shutdown ever.”
