Scott Jennings: Trump Should Distance from Steve King

‘I think President Trump should distance himself from this person’


JENNINGS: "I think President Trump should distance himself from this person. He hurts Donald Trump. You know, we've had this situation before where the President has been associated with people who have done galactically stupid and offensive things. It would behoove the President to get away from those people. The President, I think, actually should be basking in the credit of his work on criminal justice reform and the outreach that means for the African-American community, but the impact, the positive impact of work like that is mitigated if you continue to associate yourself with people like King. So I think the President should get away from this guy. And I think the congressional committee needs to support the primary opponent."
