Senate Candidate JD Vance Begs Fox News Viewers To Forgive Him For Having Condemned Trump On Twitter

Mediaite has the transcript:

Like a lot of people, I criticized Trump back in 2016. And I ask folks not to judge me based on what I said in 2016, because I’ve been very open that I did say those critical things and I regret them, and I regret being wrong about the guy.

I think he was a good president, I think he made a lot of good decisions for people, and I think he took a lot of flak.

I think the most important thing, is not what you said five years ago, but whether you’re willing to stand up and take the heat and take the hits for actually defending the interests of the American people.

Vance has deleted tweets calling Trump “reprehensible” – among other things – now that he’s running for the US Senate in Ohio, aided by a $10 million donation from homocon Peter Thiel.
