Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” chairman of the American Conservative Union and former White House political director for George W. Bush, Matt Schlapp, said the presidential election will be about America’s 20-year relationship with the Clintons.
Schlapp explained what Hillary Clinton’s fundamental problem is.
“The American people, I think Republicans and Democrats — a lot of Democrats I talked to, know that if Donald Trump shoots straight, she shoots crooked,” he said. “And they just feel like she’s got a second set of rules for her. It’s the way the Clintons play the game. It’s why the Sanders movement was so potent in that party.”
He added, “We’re looking at Donald Trump, and saying ‘My God, he’s doing this. That’s not the right way to do it at this point in the campaign.’ We got to realize at some point in this it’s really about this 20-year relationship America has had with the Clintons and at this point in history, do they want to go with that. I think there’s a lot of people who don’t.”
