W.H.: If They Don’t Denounce Him, ‘Every Presidential Candidate’ Embraces Trump’s ‘Cynical Strategy’

‘So those are the priorities of today’s Republican party, and they will continue to be until somebody in the Republican party decides to summon the courage to stand up and change it’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

EARNEST: "In fact, that is precisely what every presidential candidate is doing when they do not denounce the cynical strategy of Donald Trump, because they want the same votes. Other Republicans have used the same strat jishgs and one Republican congressman told a reporter that he was David duke without the baggage, and he was elected by a position to the third the ranking position in the house, and those same members of Congress blocked immigration reform, and those same members of Congress blocked reauthorization voting act, and those same members of Congress could not support a simple funding bill, because they are eager to defend the confederate flag. So those are the priorities of today's Republican party, and they will continue to be until somebody in the Republican party decides to summon the courage to stand up and change it."

REPORTER: "Should Donald Trump apologize to the president?"

EARNEST: "I am not really, and I have not seen any evidence that he is interested in my advice about what he should do."
