RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel: Dems must denounce Perez's anti-Trump rhetoric

Ronna Romney McDaniel weighs in on 'Fox & Friends'

 

RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel on Monday called on Democrats to denounce DNC Chair Tom Perez, after he said President Trump “didn’t win the election” and suggested the Republican Party doesn’t care about voters.

“I think it’s deeply concerning to see the head of the Democrat Party continue to try to delegitimize this election, not only President Trump who did win this election – by a lot – but also the voters,” McDaniel said on “Fox and Friends.”

Perez made the remarks Friday night at a rally hosted by the New Jersey Working Families Alliance.

DNC'S PEREZ SAYS TRUMP A BULLY, 'DIDN'T WIN ELECTION'

“Donald Trump, you don’t stand for our values, that’s what they said. Donald Trump, you didn’t win this election,” he said.

"When it came to health care … he didn’t want to call it TrumpCare. What do we call it? TrumpCare. Do we call it RyanCare? Well, I'll tell you my idea because you know what embodies their program? I-don’t-care. Because they don’t give a s**t about people,” Perez said.

Perez was elected by the Democrats in February, after a close fight with Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn.

McDaniel said Perez's language was “deeply concerning” and called on Democrats to denounce his rhetoric.

“I think the Democrats should be denouncing his behavior this weekend,” she said. “To say Republicans don’t give a blank about people – that should not be rhetoric the head of the Democratic Party should be using,” she said.
