Donald Trump has succeeded in politics because he has no shame, according to Marco Rubio's former campaign manager.
"The difference is shame. Almost every person is born with some sort of shame. Donald Trump is not," Terry Sullivan, who managed Marco Rubio’s presidential campaign, said in an interview on the Washington Examiner's "Examining Politics"
Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio was one of the final four GOP candidates in the race. He dropped out March 15 after Trump defeated him in his home state of Florida.
Sullivan went on to compare Trump to former president Bill Clinton.
"He really is in politics, in an ironic twist of fate, the continuation of Bill Clinton. When, before that, if a politician got caught doing something — that was it. They were so embarrassed, they apologized, it was the mea culpa, I'm so sorry, please forgive me, and sometimes that would work," Sullivan said, during the podcast.
Sullivan said that he believed that Trump is similar to Clinton, in that he's difficult to take on because he doesn't feel guilty or shameful about his actions.
"Once we hit Bill Clinton, with the Monica Lewinsky scandal — forget what it was about — the guy lied, and he just tripled down on it and he continued to lie," Sullivan said.
"There was really no shame there. And, that worked for him. And so you look, ironically at Trump, and there's no shame," Sullivan said, adding, "He doesn't apologize for anything, so therefore there's no guilt. You can't convict somebody that doesn't feel guilty about anything."
Trump has reiterated claims that the Obama administration supported the Islamic State, according to the Washington Post.
Trump has also hinted that Obama's goal in the wake of the Orlando gay nightclub shooting was to weaken America, according to the Los Angeles Times.
