Rick Perry: "When I Found Out About The Real Donald Trump, I Didn't Like What I Saw"


FMR. GOV. RICK PERRY (R-TX), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: I don’t ever recall any begging that was going on. There were a lot of people that went and sat down with Donald Trump four years ago. I’ve been with a lot of people before, but what I’ve found out about The Real Donald Trump – which by the way his Twitter tag is the Real Donald Trump – and when I found out about the Real Donald Trump, I didn’t like what I saw, I didn’t like what I heard. This is a guy who is for single payer healthcare, this is a guy who is raising the taxes huge amounts – this is a person I think would be more comfortable with Hillary Clinton than he is running for the Republicans...

This isn’t about me. This is about Donald Trump and making statements that are just so out of the realm of appropriate. Taking on our POWs – to say what he said about John McCain and the rest of the men and the women who have spent time in the Hanoi Hilton. That’s inappropriate...

Well, indeed he is. When you look at his statements. This country is begging for a leader that will bring this country together. Not a divider. We’ve had a divider for the past 6 and a half years and Americans are looking for somebody that will bring this country together. That incendiary rhetoric that you hear out of Donald Trump, whether it’s at the immigration population or whether it’s our veterans, that’s unacceptable and I think Americans are going to take a look at that just as I did and say, ‘You know what, we’re not going to quietly take this, we’re going to push back and we’re going to push back hard.’

People want to feel good that the best days are ahead of us and when they see someone like Donald Trump who spends all of his time throwing invectives and being very negative to individuals I don’t think that’s going to play well.

I happen to believe that my record is what’s going to stand out – not how I do my hair or whether I wear glasses or not. I’m not going to talk about Donald Trump’s hair, I doubt if he’ll talk about mine, but what we are going to talk about its our record...

There are a lot of people that have a better chance of being our nominee before Donald Trump. We can say that about a whole lot of people. I’m a Republican. I’m going to support the Republican nominee. Donald Trump’s got a long way to go to really make people believe he is a conservative. I mean when you really look at what this guy believes - I mean, come on, single payer healthcare and he’s running as a Republican. Where’s that coming from, Neil?
