Arizona Treasurer DeWit Defends Trump Talk on Senators

Fox News' "Fox & Friends"

By    |   Wednesday, 23 August 2017 03:04 PM

GOP Arizona Treasurer Jeff DeWit, who who may be considering challenging Sen. Jeff Flake for his seat, Wednesday defended President Donald Trump's criticism of senators who are not helping his agenda progress.

"A lot of people all over the country in the Senate have, on the Republican side have, raised money for seven years saying they're going to repeal Obamacare, and I think a lot of people are very disappointed that Obamacare is not gone," said DeWit on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program.

"Obviously, the president has done everything he can to make that happen, and it's time for the Senate to put the bill on his desk and fix what has really broken our small business sector," DeWit continued. "Getting rid of Obamacare will help bring more jobs, and that's the important thing."

DeWit has had several conversations with Trump and flew along with him for a short bit on Air Force One Tuesday. However, he would not tell Fox News what he and the president spoke about on their flight.

DeWit said, though, that he does agree with Trump's stance on media, and thinks the president was treated unfairly for his response after the Charlottesville, Virginia protests.

"The media is treating President Trump very unfairly," he said. "But the one thing he has that I think drives the media crazy is he has Twitter and also the big rallies."

DeWit also said it was "sad" what the media put Trump through with its response to his reaction to Charlottesville.

"He did the right thing and they said, 'oh, he wasn't specific enough,'" said DeWit.
