Richard Viguerie: Trump Support Should Send Signal to GOP

By    |   Thursday, 23 Jul 2015 06:16 PM

Donald Trump is unlikely to be elected president, Conservative HQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie tells Newsmax TV,  but his supporters want to send Republicans a message.

"The American people are sending a message to the Democrats through Bernie Sanders and the Republicans through Donald Trump, and people are angry out there, and that's what you're seeing," Viguerie told "Newsmax Prime" on Thursday.

Trump has surged to the top of the GOP polls despite comments that have angered critics and caused the party establishment to call him out. But many of those supporters likely disagree with Trump on a majority of issues, Viguerie said.

"Trump is more of a Democrat than he is a Republican," he said. "He's given about $300,000, $400,000 away in the last few election cycles and 55 percent of that has been to Democrats."

Still, Viguerie said, people are angry and want to send a message to the ruling class. "If the Republicans are smart, they're going to wake up and address some of these issues that the American people are angry about."

Trump initially caused anger when he said in his campaign announcement that many Mexican immigrants are "rapists" and "bringing crime." But that has focused attention on border security, especially following the shooting death of Kate Steinle by an illegal Mexican immigrant earlier this month in San Francisco.

Other candidates are ignoring conservative issues and Trump will force them to talk about them, Viguerie said.

"The American people gave the Republicans a resounding victory, landslide victory in 2014, based on issues like secure the border, no amnesty, abolish Obamacare," he said, "and the Republican leaders promptly, quickly, abandoned those campaign issues that they had run on. In other words, they lied to the American people."
