Barrasso: Talk About Squad's 'Extreme' Goals, Not Trump's Tweets

By    |   Tuesday, 16 July 2019 03:42 PM

Sen. John Barrasso said Tuesday he'd much rather focus on the "terrible" policies offered by the group of left-wing congresswomen President Donald Trump attacked through Twitter on Sunday than on the tweets or the lawmakers themselves. 

"They are left-wing policies, radical policies, extreme policies that I think would hurt our country," the Wyoming Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom," singling out the Green New Deal, Medicare for all, and open borders.
"We're talking about the things that unite us," said Barrasso, adding that the economy is strong and healthy. 

The far-left policies are "so extreme" and out of mainstream America, said Barrasso, and people in his state are saying the plans are scary. 

"It's not where this country needs to be headed," said Barrasso. "WE need to be headed in the way we're heading right now...it's 50 years since the launch of the flight to the moon today. Our economy is the strongest it has been since that day." Unemployment numbers way down, wages way up. It's a result of the policies that we have put in place under this president and a Republican-controlled Senate and House."

He added that he'd also rather be talking about the policies Democratic candidates like Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders are pushing on healthcare, as either plan will cost Americans more money. 

Barrasso also spoke about the ongoing issues with Iran, after its foreign minister said the country would talk if U.S. sanctions are lifted.

"The sanctions have been working," said Barrasso. "The economy is reeling in Iran. "I think it's much more important that they talk and negotiate before sanctions are relieved. Their goal is sanction relief. That's not our goal."
