"Trump's latest embarrassment does not surprise me, which is why I have never supported him, and never will. We are a party of personal responsibility. Nothing about the way Trump has conducted himself has shown that he is a Republican. Republicans have to take responsibility for allowing Trump to use our party as a platform for his hateful rhetoric. The actions of statesmen like Congressman Simpson and Senator Crapo are a reminder that we have good, strong moral, people in our party. We need more like them in Washington. I am personally inspired by their leadership and what it represents: a chance to rebuild a party focused on freedom, opportunity and personal responsibility."
