President Trump Admonishes Calls to “Kick” Republicans


On Thursday, President Donald Trump admonished the remarks of former U.S. attorney general Eric Holder; the criticism came after Holder called for Democrats to “kick” Republicans, reports Fox News.

An Overview of Trump and Holder’s Statements

During the president’s earlier interview with Fox & Friends, he shared his thoughts regarding the statements of the former attorney general:

“He better be careful what he’s wishing for. That’s a disgusting statement for him to make.”

Trump’s remarks come after Holder made controversial statements on Sunday during a campaign event for Georgia Democrats:

“It is time for us, as Democrats, to be as tough as they are. [It is time for us] to be as dedicated as they are, to be as committed as they are. Michelle always says, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No. When they go low, we kick ’em.”

Holder’s call for violence against Republicans come after Hillary Clinton stated that Democrats can only be civil with Republicans in the event of a November blue wave.
