McConnell refuses to say if Trump is qualified to be president
This can’t be good for the Republican Party, its leadership or its nominee.
Stephanopoulos asked McConnell whether he believes that Donald Trump is qualified to be president in response to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll, which shows that nearly two-thirds of respondents believe that Trump is not qualified to serve in the nation’s highest office. When asked directly if he agrees with a supermajority of American voters regarding Trump’s qualifications, McConnell admitted that Trump “has made a number of mistakes over the last few weeks,” but he did not directly answer the question.
McConnell did offer one assurance to Republican voters who may be concerned that their presidential candidate is unfit for the White House. Trump is “beginning to use a prepared script more often.” So there’s that.
