Rep. Mike Turner (Ohio), the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, on Sunday condemned the statements by former President Donald Trump that certain parts of the constitution should be terminated because of his unfounded claims of widespread fraud during the 2020 presidential election.
While speaking with CBS’s “Face the Nation,” moderator Margaret Brennan, Turner was asked about his thoughts about Trump’s post on Saturday which called for all rules and actions to be terminated, including those in the Constitution.
Turner said that he “absolutely” condemned the statements made by Trump and that people should reevaluate whether he is a good candidate after making these statements.
Trump officially launched his 2024 presidential campaign last month. Following his announcement, many of his critics have questioned his decision to run for the White House again.
Turner specifically said during his appearance on CBS that he “vehemently disagree(s) with the statement that Trump has made,” he added that Trump has made thousands of statements that he disagreed with.
Others in the party, like Rep. David Joyce (R-Ohio), have so far not condemned the statement made by former President Trump.
In recent days the former President has also come under a lot of fire for his dinner with Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, who has made a wide range of racist and antisemitic comments along with white supremacist Nick Fuentes.
