Rand Paul on Trump: He’s ‘an Empty Suit, Full of Bravado’

‘We’ve got an empty suit here, full of bravado but not full of anything really meaningful for the country’

Rand Paul: Donald Trump Is a 'Bully' and an 'Empty Suit' (The National Journal)

Sen. Rand Paul's presidential campaign has a new strategy since last Thursday's GOP debate: Go after Donald Trump, and don't let up.

On Monday, Paul went as far as to hold a conference call with reporters for the explicit purpose of trash-talking Trump.

Paul started out talking about how he got his start in politics with the tea party, an antiestablishment wing of the Republican Party aimed at primarying candidates who were not true conservatives. Paul said conservatives should doubt Trump's sincerity, given Trump's past moderate views on issues like health care and abortion.
