Trump on Boehner Resignation: ‘It’s a Good Thing’
Donald Trump offered his opinion on House Speaker John Boehner’s resignation on Friday.
“I think it’s time, it’s a good thing,” Trump said. “Someone else will come in and maybe they’ll have a tougher attitude.”
According to Trump, Boehner didn’t stand up for conservative principals.
“No, he didn’t. Not enough,” he said. “I don’t think he’s a conservative.”
“I think it’s time for him [to move on] and the party and everybody,” Trump added.
The Hill reports:
Asked whether he had preference for Boehner’s replacement, Trump said he did not but that he believes there are some good contenders.
Boehner has become a punching bag for Republicans at the conservative Values Voters Summit. Many of the attendees learned of the news for the first time from Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, another presidenital hopeful, who was one of the first speakers of the day. The ballroom erupted in a standing ovation at the announcement.
