GOP Candidate Has A Past Of Attacking Donald Trump

( Kathy Barnette, a contender for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, was not always supportive of Donald Trump. During the primary election for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, Barnette, a supporter of Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), constantly attacked Donald Trump in tweets and other statements.

For instance, Barnette referred to Trump as “horrible” during one of their debates in September of 2015.

Additionally, she stated in another tweet that she sent out on September 26, 2015, that Trump would be excellent for drinks and a barbeque. But not as a President.

Barnette stated that Trump should not be elected president, adding that we are morally bankrupt for even contemplating his candidacy.

On the same day, Barnette described Donald Trump as just as liberal compared to the leaders in power.” Barack Obama was still the president at the time.

In another tweet, she wrote that although she had favorable feelings toward Trump, he is nothing more than “headlines” and that there is very little substance associated with Trump.

She also stated that Trump had questionable moral integrity and that he was “braggadocious.”

In March 2016, when Dr. Ben Carson backed Trump for president, Barnette tweeted that there was a significant disconnect, for her, about Carson’s preference for Trump over Cruz.

Barnette says in her book, which is scheduled for release in February 2020, that Trump was the candidate she supported the least in the 2016 Republican primary. This indicates that she favored former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R), former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and former Ohio Governor John Kasich more than Trump.

On page 33 of her book, Barnette writes that she did not begin her career as a Trump supporter.

She said that with candidates like former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, neurosurgeon Ben Carson, and Senator Ted Cruz, there was no way on God’s green earth that she was going to vote for the television and business magnate. There were far too many excellent alternatives to settle for voting for him.

Donald Trump came in at number sixteen out of sixteen on her list of favorite presidential contenders.

No wonder Trump supports Oz in her Pennsylvania primary.
