NewsMax-Donald Trump will ‘destroy the Republican Party’ if he becomes president of the United States, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay told Newsmax TV on Tuesday.
“If Trump becomes our nominee and ultimately becomes president, he could actually destroy the Republican Party,” the five-term Texan, who served as majority leader from 2003 to 2005, told “The Steve Malzberg Show” in an interview. “I truly believe that.
“He’s no conservative,” DeLay added. “He wants to be king — and when he says, ‘Make America Great Again,’ it sounds a lot like ‘Hope and Change’ to me.”
He was referring to the campaign theme of President Barack Obama.
DeLay told Malzberg that Trump’s waffling on David Duke’s endorsement “just sounds like it’s just a mess.
