Ron Paul Slams Donald Trump For Presidential Endorsement
Written by 

campaignfinance2_0Ron Paul is taking a swipe at fellow Republican Donald Trump today.  It has been reported by CNN that Trump is considering running as a 3rd party candidate for President, however, Paul has other notions.

Here is what Paul is trumpeting:

Please explain to us why anyone would care.
 
Please explain to Republican voters in Nevada why they should consider the opinion of a billionaire from New York who endorsed the arch enemy of all Republicans in Nevada, and really the enemy of all Republicans in the US.

“The biggest recipient of all has been the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee of New York...”
 
“He donated $10,400 to Reid, including for his 2010 battle with Sharron Angle, the GOP nominee and tea party favorite.”
 
CNN: “Trump has a long history of assisting Democrats”
 
“Over the last two decades, Trump gave money to a number of high-profile Democrats and liberal icons, including Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Tom Daschle and Joe Biden.”
 
“The biggest recipient of Trump's largesse? The scandal-plagued Rangel…”

    Is political partisanship raising its ugly head again in the face of another Louisiana disaster?  Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards thinks so.
