Rep. Jim Renacci defends President Trump's reported remarks about immigrants

Rep. Jim Renacci defends President Trump's reported remarks about immigrants

Rep. Jim Renacci (R-OH) is off to a strong start in the Ohio Senate race, arguing on Fox Friday morning that we should not judge President Trump on "what he says".

Trump's remarks laced with profanity about not wanting immigrants from Africa and Haiti has angered and upset people from both parties. Sherrod Brown, has pinned his political hopes on Trump and his populist appeal.

"I've said all along the president many times says what people are thinking", he said.

Renacci went on, saying that "as a business guy", he's learned you have to be careful what you say "because people pick everything up". "I got to tell you".

Renacci, a Cleveland area businessman, has been in Congress since 2011, but has postured himself as an outsider, similar to Trump.

"It's hard, and I know it's hard for the president, because many times you want to say what you're thinking", the congressman said, as the Fox News host murmured continual agreement. "So look, I always say, judge the president after four years". Let's judge the president after what we have done. She called them "vile", as well as "un-American, racist and cruel".

In his e-mail, Renacci pointed to his meeting Wednesday in the White House with top aides of President Donald Trump as key.

She released the transcript of Glenn Simpson's interview over the objections of the committee's Republican chairman, Iowa Sen. As for the "sneaky" label, she said, "He tends to call people names very quickly, so I'm not alone".

Renacci said he believes people in OH are happy to see what has happened since Trump's election, including the changes in the economy and the tax cuts.

"It's a awful comment", Kasich said. "We look at things different", said Renacci. "We all make mistakes, but there's no excuse and when you do it you have to apologize". Renacci told Kilmeade Trump promised to help with his campaign, and that he thinks "a lot like the president". "I've been a supporter of the president's agenda".

He added that he's been a longtime supporter of the president and supported him during the OH primary, even though the state's governor, John Kasich, was in the presidential race. "And the president knows that I've supported his agenda from then all the way through to today".

Meanwhile, Republicans have been pounding on Brown for voting against the GOP tax cut that they say has produced raises and bonuses for employees in OH and across the country even though the Democrat predicted they wouldn't. "Indeed, it's happened many times in many states in recent years", the political scientist said.

As if to prove him right, the Democrats dropped a rhetorical bomb on Renacci shortly after the Wadsworth congressman's e-mail announcing his switcheroo became public.

Brown released a statement that said he disagrees with Renacci's assertion "that President Trump's disgusting and hateful comments about immigrants were speaking for what many Americans are thinking".

"Remember people in OH, blue collar union people, said 'I want President Trump, '" said Renacci.
