Kevin McCarthy: This Is About ‘Socialism Versus Freedom’

‘They talked more about impeachment than anything else’

REPORTER: "Were the President’s tweets racist?"
McCARTHY: "No. And I don’t believe the Speaker of the House was racist last week when those individuals on her side of the aisle who are claiming the President is racist, when they claimed she was racist either. I believe this is about ideology. This is about socialism versus freedom. And it is very clear what the debate is happening. I understand, when I listened to their press conference yesterday, they talked more about impeachment than anything else. Even one of those individuals, this is not the first time they talked about impeachment. On the night of being sworn in, they brought all their supporters together and they spoke about impeachment in words that I will not use here. This is more from their base, is about politics. It is unfortunate. We should get back to the business of America."
