GOP Rep: Trump Doesn’t Have One Trait I’d Want My Son to Emulate
Rep. Scott Rigell said on Friday that Donald Trump sets a terrible example for children.
“There is not one character trait in Donald Trump I would want my son to emulate,” Rigell told Time Magazine on Friday.
“I’m so embarrassed to be identified with him and in fact, I couldn’t be.”
The Hill reports:
Rigell, who came to office in the 2010 Tea Party wave, represents Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District, which has a large military constituency.Rigell has been among the most vocal “Never Trump” Republicans throughout the 2016 race. He recently signed a letter urging the GOP to stop supporting Trump and to shift its money to help down-ballot candidates instead.“I need to have a clear conscience in this matter,” Rigell reportedly said, explaining why he signed the controversial letter.
