Brooks: Trump Comments ‘Culture War Politics of the Worst Sort’

New York Times columnist David Brooks argued Donald Trump’s immigration comments were “culture war politics of the worst sort” on Friday’s “PBS NewsHour.”

Brooks said of Trump’s comments, “It’s an actual, crucial moment for the Republican Party. This was a slur, a completely inaccurate slur. It’s culture war politics of the worst sort. If the Republican Party can’t stand up at this moment, against this guy, and make the obvious, accurate case, then they will be in long-term trouble with Hispanics. They’ll be in short-term trouble because they’ll have self-polarized themselves.”
