McMullin: GOP Leaders Have Allowed the ‘Racist Message of Donald Trump to Spread Throughout the Country’
MCMULLIN: "And I’ve described, George, what I think in this country is a leadership crisis. And I think both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and the American people recognize this.These are the two most unpopular major party candidates ever to be nominated since we were measuring those kinds of sentiments. And the American people know that they — that they need better, that they deserve better. They — both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump personify this crisis. But it’s not just them, it’s our other leaders. It’s our leaders who wouldn’t stand up to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in the primaries, because they were afraid that they were going to be criticized or that they would lose their seats in Congress, for example. Unfortunately, our leaders today, George, don’t have the courage to stand up for Americans, to stand up for equality and liberty. They’ve allowed racist — the racist message of Donald Trump to spread throughout the country. They’ve allowed the government in Washington, D.C., to grow and grow to the extent that it’s depriving people of their liberties. We can’t — we can’t stand for this any longer. We need a new conservative movement that I think will provide the kind of leadership to this country that it needs."
