Republican presidential candidates Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee on Thursday blasted Donald Trump for saying that he wouldn’t want to be president if Hillary Clinton were elected.
Trump said on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Thursday that he would not vote for the former secretary of state if he were president, saying “she’d be worse than Obama.”
“We’re going to win this thing,” he said.
“We don’t have to have him running for president.”
But Santorum and Huckabee have called on the GOP to stop running candidates like Trump who “don’t know how to win” and focus on the issues.
“The only way to beat Hillary Clinton is to elect Republican candidates who are willing to fight for the American people,” Huckabee said in a statement.
“She is unfit to be President and Donald Trump doesn’t know the way to win.”
That’s why he’s the only Republican running in this race who will stand up for the forgotten American, the middle class, the working man and woman who are suffering from this administration’s attack on their standard of living,” he added.
Santorum, a former senator from Pennsylvania, said Trump’s comments were a mistake and that his views on the economy and foreign policy are in line with his party’s platform.”
Santora, a longtime Trump critic, also blasted Trump for his “poor judgment.”””
I’m not going to let that happen.”
Santora, a longtime Trump critic, also blasted Trump for his “poor judgment.”
“I don’t think he’s qualified to be the president,” he warned.
“He’s just one of the candidates.”
