Rand Paul calls out Trump on conservative credentials and understanding of basic economicsSubmitted by ron_paul_is_awesome on Thu, 04/28/2011 - 12:36
Rand taking some shots at The Donald, LOL. Matt Viser of boston.com details Rand's appearance in New Hampshire today:
“I’ve come to New Hampshire today because I’m very concerned,” Paul said. “I want to see the original long-form certificate, with embossed seal, of Donald Trump’s Republican registration.”
“Seriously don’t you think we need to see that?” he said, adding that Trump had donated to Democrats such as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
After his speech, Paul went on to criticize Trump in harsh terms, saying that the business mogul lacked a basic economic know-how and was wrong to suggest that gasoline prices could be lowered by bullying oil-rich countries.
“He’s always complaining about the president’s education,” Paul told reporters. “It's like, what economic school teaches you that you can have a bully for a president who sets the prices by just telling countries what price they should charge? That to me shows an economic simplicity that really may not be equivalent to the stature of being president.”
