Trump Privately Said GOP House Candidate Rick Saccone Is ‘Weak’: Report
President Donald Trump reportedly trashed GOP House candidate Rick Saccone whom he campaigned for on March 10.
Trump barely mentioned Saccone at the campaign rally because he thinks Saccone is a terrible, “weak” candidate, four sources told Axios.
Instead, Trump talked about himself and insulted other people, including NBC News’ Chuck Todd whom Trump called a “son of a bitch.”
Axios notes Trump is not the only one who feels this way:
The widely-held view from Republican officials: Democrat Conor Lamb is a far superior candidate to Saccone and running a far better campaign. Lamb is running effectively as Republican Lite. He’s pro-gun and says he personally opposes to abortion (though he supports abortion rights).
