Scott Walker: Trump 'Needs to Apologize'

By    |   Sunday, 19 July 2015 07:49 PM

Donald Trump should apologize for his comments on Saturday disparaging Arizona Sen. John McCain as "not a war hero," says Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, one of Trump's rivals for the GOP presidential nomination.

"At a minimum he needs to apologize," Walker told "NBC Nightly News"  on Sunday, reiterating an assertion he made on the campaign trail in Iowa a day earlier. He told NBC that Trump's supporters should push the real estate tycoon to say sorry.

Whatever Trump does next, Walker said, "that's up to the voters. But clearly he needs to apologize and refrain from comments like that."

Trump has said he won't back down from his controversial statement made Saturday at the Iowa Family Leadership Summit, though most of his presidential rivals have condemned his words.

"I think that more people need to push him," Walker said. "And not just candidates or elected officials, but I think more people from across America, including some of those that maybe up until now have been supporters of his."

On a campaign stop in Sioux City, Iowa, on Saturday, Walker said McCain is "undoubtedly an American hero,"  adding that Trump "needs to apologize to Senator McCain and all the other men and women who have worn the uniform."
