When a conservative Republican like Mike Lee asks a Republican candidate to leave the race publicly, you are in trouble.
Republican Senator Mike Lee does the right thing
Mike Lee released a video on Facebook where in no uncertain terms urges Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump to step aside from the race.
Breitbart reports the following.
“Mr. Trump, I respectfully ask you, with all due respect to step aside. Step down. Allow someone else to carry the banner of these principles,” Lee said.
Lee published a video on Facebook of his reaction to Trump after the Republican nominee apologized Friday evening for using degrading rhetoric about women in a conversation ten years ago with Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush. The Washington Post published leaked audio of the conversation on Friday. …
“With all due respect sir, you sir are the distraction, your conduct, sir, is the distraction, it’s the distraction from the very principles that will help us win in November,” he said.
Lee called for a Republican candidate that reflected Republican principles, demanding a better candidate to lead them to defeat Hillary Clinton.
“There will be time to figure out the who,” said Lee. “Right now we’ve got to be focused on the what. And that what has to involve our greatest, our most noble principles.”
