Mitch Mcconnell, United States, House Freedom Caucus discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
Iron. So tell us what is your stance on trade and why is that Republicans can't get their act together? Well, the reason the Republicans don't get their act together is, again, follow the money. By way of example, Mitch McConnell is famous for believing in power politics. And the way you get the money to deploy power, politics, tactics and a campaign is you do it the special interest groups to want you to do. And if you do that, then you'll get rewarded with tens of millions of dollars that you can then use in elections with which to pummel your opponents with negative false attack ads. I disagree with that method of government. I believe that the challenges for us to do a good job, and if we do a good job, then the public will reelect us. And that's an asthma to the Mitch McConnell team and the way in which they tried to govern things. That is one of the reasons why they do not want me in the United States Senate. After all, I am one of the founding members of the House freedom caucus. People like Mark Meadows, Mick Mulvaney, Jim Jordan, Ron DeSantis, down in Florida. We're all part of that same group. We only invite people to participate if we believe that they're both conservative and they have the backbone to fight for the conservative values that they say they believe in when they're running for election. So on foreign policy, excuse me, foreign trade, we have to recognize that there are some entities around the globe that take advantage of us. China being the number one perpetrator of unfair trade practices against the United States of America. That's why we have over $300 billion a year that hemorrhages from our economy to the Chinese communist parties economy we don't have fair trade laws with communist China. And by way of example, they use slave labor in an American manufacturer can not compete against slave labor. So we have to be extraordinarily tough against the communist Chinese parties way of competing unfairly against American manufacturers. And if we will balance it, playing field a little bit, then we'll have some of those manufacturing jobs returning to the United States of America and Americans will have a better opportunity to make a better living. That's awesome. So in closing here, as a senator, you know, there's senators that go and really change how things work. That's why we got behind JD Vance. That's why we got behind you and why there's a lot of these other exciting candidates. Josh hawley is just phenomenal. Can you just give our listeners and the people listening in Alabama? Just kind of a final guarantee that you're going to go to the Senate and you're going to really fight. You're not just going to go to get along because I think that's a big concern that people have, which is say one thing and they do the other and then you just kind of vote for in the general, because it's a lesser of two evils. What are your thoughts on that? Well, you can look at my background to rest assured that I'm going to do what I say I'm going to do because I've had elected office. My opponent has not been so much elected to the position of dog catch or anything better than that. So in effect, my opponent can parent back to the public, but the polls say that she should say, regardless of whether she believes what she's really saying. And quite frankly, there are a lot of instances in which she flip flops. Diametrically opposing positions, and then there are also a lot of instances in which she says one thing to get your vote, which is diametrically opposed to her history. By way of example, she signed Grover norquist no taxes pledge after having her history in the state of Alabama is raising more taxes than any other Republican candidate in the history of the state of Alabama. That's a big distinction. But with me, I've been in public life, you can look at my record. You can verify that I'm going to do what I say I'm going to do. That's why you know I'm going to be strong on border security because I've done it. That's why numbers USA has given me an a plus grade every single year, but in the United States Congress. You know I'm pro life because I've done it, and that's why national right to life is graded me in a every year, I've been in the United States Congress. You know I'm going to defend the Second Amendment right to bear arms because I've done it. That's why the NRA gun owners of America, the national association of gun rights, have all endorsed me for the United States Senate in the state of Alabama. So it really comes down to this. It's the people regular Joe and Jane citizen versus the special interest groups, the Democrats and the power crafts. And these people have the money. They have the deception. My trust is in the American people to discern the truth. And if they do that, we'll do just fine, but it's a challenge because of all the deception put out by the case. It is a challenge. And I hope in the next week or two, we'll start to see some stuff out of Mar-a-Lago or bedminster and we'll see what happens, but we're behind you. Thank you so much. Keep fighting. And reject the chamber at all costs. It's one of the main reasons we endorse to. Thank you so much. Thank you so much for listening, everybody, email me your thoughts.
