Trump Hails Lone GOP Defender Rand Paul

From the right wing Townhall:

While President Trump has faced widespread backlash from Republicans and Democrats alike over his performance at the Helsinki Summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin — not everyone was displeased. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), in fact, liked much of what Trump had to say. He brushed aside criticism Trump received from within the GOP as nothing more than “Trump derangement syndrome.”

“Republicans that are making the criticism are either the pro-war Republicans like (Sen. John) McCain and (Sen. Lindsey) Graham or the anti-Trump ones like (Sen. Ben) Sasse,” he said. “They are motivated by their persistent and consistent dislike of the president.” Mitt Romney called Trump’s performance “disgraceful” while McCain said the meeting with the Russian leader was a “tragic mistake.”
