Boehner Walks Back Criticism Of Trump Presidency As A 'Complete Disaster'

A week ago, Boehner told the KPMG Global Energy Conference that Trump “did what he could” to pass health care legislation.

“Everything else he’s done in office has been a complete disaster,” he said. “He’s still learning how to be President.” But at another industry conference on Wednesday — this time for the Council of Insurance Agents and Brokers Employee Leadership Forum — Boehner distanced himself from that criticism, according to Politico.

“Let me address this because some people have gotten carried away in their interpretation of what I said,” he said. “Listen, Donald Trump is my friend. He was my supporter. I play golf with him and frankly I like the President. I voted for him. I want him and frankly I want the country to succeed. But I’ve seen some people write — I think they’ve gotten a little carried away in their interpretation of what I said.”

“I did not say that the President’s policies were a disaster,” he said. “I did not say that the President’s agenda was a disaster. What I was referring to was the execution of the President’s agenda and the President’s policies. And frankly I think there have been a number of missteps, unforced errors that the President has made and I think the White House would agree that they’ve had their share of mistakes as the President learns to be the President.”

5. Boehner is right. Trump's policies ARE the GOP's. Do not let voters forget that

The voters HATE the GOP policies. We need to hammer that point.

If/When Trump goes down, the GOP will be spinning that Trump was really a Democrat. Even if Trump, in the past when in better cognitive health, was a Democrat....his presidential policies and appointments have been the GOP's dream all the way.
