Republican Glenn Youngkin joins the likes of Mike Pence, Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, and other 2024 hopefuls who haven’t named a single policy difference between themselves and Donald Trump.
Glenn Youngkin refused to name any policy differences between his and Trump’s MAGA agenda and disastrous record.
Politico: “As for former president Donald Trump, who will surely in due course have cutting words for Youngkin if the Virginian decides to compete for the Republican nomination, ‘I think there were many things that Donald Trump progressed on a policy standpoint that were extremely good.’”
Youngkin was spoon fed an opportunity to distance himself from Trump’s extremism – and still refused to break away.
Politico: “Any criticism at all of those tumultuous Trump years? ‘Well, I think what you say and how you say it,’ Youngkin offered delicately. ‘I think there is a chance to disagree with people without being disagreeable. I don’t call people names. [Avoiding insults] is just one of the things I believe is appropriate. We just have different styles.’”
It seems no one in the race for the MAGA base can name a single policy difference between themselves and Trump – even when they’re pressed for an answer on national television.
Sean Hannity: “What are differences in terms of policy positions that, for example, you may have with President Trump?”
Tim Scott: “Probably not very many at all. I am so thankful that we had President Trump in office.”
Sean Hannity: “Where would you be different on issues than President Trump?”
Pence: “Well, I said early on that the only thing I had decided was that I wasn’t gonna let anybody else make the decision for me. So whether it’s the former president or any other candidate, we’ll make a decision based on what I and my family feel called to do in this moment in the life of the nation.”
Newsweek: “Presidential hopeful Nikki Haley failed to give a clear answer on how her policies differ from former President Donald Trump’s while being quizzed by Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday.”
