Joe Walsh: ‘If I’m Not Successful’ in Beating Trump, ‘I’m Not Voting for Him’

‘We’re talking about a child in the White House who tweets ugly insults at average Americans every day’

STEPHANOPOULOS: But, as you know, presidents who face a serious primary challenge, Jimmy Carter, Ted Kennedy, George H.W. Bush from Pat Buchanan, hurt him — hurt him badly in New Hampshire — it tends to weaken them. They tend to lose.

Are you prepared to take responsibility, if you do well in this, for helping elected a Democrat that some of your viewers and listeners will say, oh, socialist?

WALSH: It doesn’t matter. Absolutely, I’m going to do whatever I can.

I don’t want him to win. The country cannot afford to have him win. If I’m not successful, I’m not voting for him.

I would rather get back to the place, George, where I’m sitting down next to a Democrat member of Congress and we’re arguing about capitalism and socialism, we’re arguing about ideas.

But, instead, we’re talking about a child in the White House who tweets ugly insults at average Americans every day. We’re tired of that. I want to get away from that. I want to get back to the policy.
