Why GOP Thinks Trump Won the First Debate
By Rakesh Raman
It was an end-to-end Hillary Clinton show where neither rival candidate Donald Trump nor moderator Lester Holt were quite visible, but GOP wants to believe its candidate Trump won the first presidential debate held Monday.
“While Donald Trump won tonight’s debate by being the candidate of true change in Washington, Hillary Clinton spent the night championing a broken system which has let the American people down time and again,” said Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Reince Priebus on Tuesday.
Priebus said that living up to her reputation as dishonest and untrustworthy, she revealed just how willing she is to put her own ambition above being truthful with the American people.
Whether it was evading her flip-flops on Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), misleading about an uptick in crime, or refusing to answer for her multiple botched foreign policy decisions, Hillary Clinton could not shed her trademark dishonesty and level with the public, RNC said in a statement.
“The American people deserve better than a dishonest career Washington politician defending a failed status quo, and Donald Trump showed tonight he is the only candidate with the big picture leadership our country needs,” said RNC.
