Young on Trump: “I intend to support the Republican nominee. I also intend to run my own race and where there are differences between myself and those who are running for president, I’ll speak to those.” [Elkhart Truth, 6.28.16]
INDIANAPOLIS – Todd Young has said he would support the Republican nominee for President – even if it’s presumptive nominee Donald Trump. He also said today that he would speak to the differences between himself and those who are running for president. The kicker – Congressman Young hasn’t listed any differences yet, putting him in lockstep so far with everything Trump has said during his toxic campaign. And no, this isn’t #YoungsLaw. Speaking through a spokesperson doesn’t count anymore.
So does Todd Young agree with Donald Trump’s proposed ban on Muslims? Does the congressman agree with Trump’s sexist remarks against women? Does Young agree with Trump’s attacks on a Hoosier? Hoosiers want to hear from Young himself – and he’s nowhere to be found.
“From calling for a ban on Muslims in the United States to saying hateful and sexists things about women, Donald Trump is running a campaign that’s toxic and divisive for the state of Indiana.” said Drew Anderson, communications director. “Todd Young has been silent on everything Donald Trump has said during this election year. Having staff speak on his behalf doesn’t count, and his silence puts him 100% in lockstep with the presumptive nominee. Congressman Young needs to come out of hiding and actually speak with all Hoosiers and not those prearranged by his staff.”
