A top Republican leader today asked people to vote for party’s presidential nominee Donald Trump, saying that “America deserves better” than Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate for the White House.
“If you’ve had enough of Washington’s brokenness, wastefulness, empty promises and arrogance, join us. Help us elect Republicans to office – from the courthouse to the statehouse to the White House. Because America deserves better,” Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker told his party delegates and supporters here during the ongoing Republican National Convention.
Walker was also among the 17 presidential aspirants of the Republican party, but dropped in the early days as Trump gained momentum.
The Wisconsin Governor said the country can’t afford to have another four years of the Obama Administration by electing Clinton in the November general elections.
“America deserves better than Hillary Clinton. That is why we need to support Donald Trump and Mike Pence for President and Vice President,” he said.
“Last August, I said that any of the Republicans running would be better than Hillary Clinton. I meant it then, and I mean it now. So let me be clear: a vote for anyone other than Donald Trump in November is a vote for Hillary Clinton,” he said.
“Make no mistake: we can’t wait four more years and ‘get them next time. The consequences are too great. After hearing the FBI Director’s recent comments, I wouldn’t even give Hillary Clinton the password to my iPhone – let alone access to classified information. This isn’t just another Clinton scandal, Hillary’s scandal put our national security at risk and that makes her unfit to be President,” he said.
Florida Governor Rick Scott said, “Trump is the man for that job. A lot of politicians like to give speeches where they say we are at a crossroads. But that’s not really where we are. Today, America is in terrible world-record-high debt, our economy is not growing, our jobs are going overseas, we’ve allowed our military to decay, and we project weakness on the international stage.”
“Washington grows while the rest of America struggles. The Democrats have not led us to a crossroads, they have led us to a cliff,” he said.
In his address, Scott acknowledged that some have reservations about Trump.
“Perhaps he’s sometimes not polite. He can be a little rough. And he may be too direct. But, this election is not actually about Donald Trump, or Hillary Clinton. In fact, this election is not about you or me either. This election is about the very survival of the American Dream,” he said.
