After former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani
said he doesn't believe President Barack Obama loves America, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker refused to be drawn into the question.
"I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America," Giuliani was quoted as saying at a private dinner, also attended by Walker. "He doesn't love you. And he doesn't love me. He wasn't brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country."
When asked about the comments by CNBC's Becky Quick on "Squawk Box," Walker said "the mayor can speak for himself. I'm not going to comment on what the president thinks or not. He can speak for himself as well."
"I'll tell you, I love America," he continued. "There are plenty of people, Democrat, Republican, independent, and in between who love this country. I think we should talk about ways we love this country and that we feel passionately about America."
But Walker was pressed further by the CNBC co-host.
"But did you agree with those comments? Were you offended? What was your reaction when you heard them?" Andrew Ross Sorkin said.
"I'm in New York. I'm used to people saying things that are aggressive out there," Walker said.
Last week, Walker was under fire during a visit to London for dodging a question about whether he believed in evolution
He later tweeted his views saying, "Both science & my faith dictate my belief that we are created by God. I believe faith & science are compatible, & go hand in hand."
