Friday on CNN’s “New Day,” Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) weighed in on GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s speech at the Republican National Convention Thursday, and said the speech was directed at everyone while white males are usually left out.
“I think what a lot of people want, the greatest line of the speech was when he pointed at the camera and said, ‘I’m going to fight for you.’ There are so many people who feel like they’ve been left aside. This might be inappropriate to say, but there’s a viewpoint that says, ‘I can fight for minorities and I can fight for women,’ and if you get that, you make up a vast majority of the voting block and you win,” he said.
“White males have been left aside a little bit in the politics of who speaks to them — not in regard to the economy and culture — but who speaks to them politically,” he added. “Donald Trump is, I think, speaking across a wide breadth of people in a way that I think you’re going to see these numbers pop,” Duffy explained.
