Tim Kaine: If You Can’t Tell the Truth, You Can’t Be President

Donald Trump Tim Kaine

Vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine believes that if you can’t tell the truth, you can’t be president.

“If you can’t tell the truth, frankly, if you can’t recognize what the truth is, then you really can’t be a president, you can’t be a commander-in-chief,” he said.

Kaine made his remarks during a rally in Miami, accusing Trump of multiple lies during the presidential campaign. But Kaine made no mention of his running mate Hillary Clinton lying on serial occasions, particularly when she discussed her private email server.

In 2008, Clinton lied about landing in Bosnia “under sniper fire” in 1996 and being “dead broke” when she and her husband left the White House, and she even claimed that she tried to join the Marines in the 1970s. She lied about F.B.I. Director James Comey’s statements regarding the truth of her habit of emailing classified information.

Kaine challenged Trump to “tell the truth” during tonight’s presidential debate, urging journalists to hold him accountable.

Kaine said he was “excited” about the debate and urged supporters to rally around Clinton.

“Let’s send our prayers and good karma Hillary Clinton’s way for a great performance,” he said.
