Chuck Todd: Is Trump ‘Reap What You Sow Issue’ for GOP?
Chuck Todd: Is Trump ‘Reap What You Sow Issue’ for GOP? (NewsBusters)
Building on comments he made on NBC’s Today, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd wondered if Donald Trump’s attack on John McCain were a “reap what you sow issue here for the Republican Party?”
Todd brought up the “reap what you sow” argument during an interview with Rick Perry as he played up how the “party embraced Donald Trump four years ago...during his whole birther craze at the time and you actively reached out for him. In hindsight was that a mistake for the party in general to embrace Trump four years ago?”
Perry, who has been one of Trump’s harshest critics, rejected Todd’s assumption and instead chose to highlight how as governor of Texas he made a conscious effort to reach out to minorities, something that the national Republican Party should do as well.
