US Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul says the Republican Party is turning into “the old white man’s party.”
“I think it’s important that the Republican Party not be seen as a party that’s not welcoming and that [doesn’t] want new people,” the Kentucky senator told MSNBC on Thursday.
“I’ve said we need to be a party that has, you know, [people] with earrings, without earrings, with tattoos, without tattoos, black, white, brown, rich [and] poor,” said Paul, son of Ron Paul, the 1988 presidential nominee of the Libertarian Party.
“If anything, one of the faults of the Republican Party is we’re not diverse enough. When we become the old white man’s party, which we’ve been kind of headed towards for a while, we’re never going to win another election,” he added.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Paul called on Americans to roundly reject the candidacy of Republican contender Donald Trump because of his “dangerous rhetoric”.
He criticized millions of Republican voters supporting the New York billionaire Donald Trump, who is leading the crowded Republican field despite making controversial remarks against Mexican immigrants, women and Muslims.
“We need to be careful about letting the voice of the Republican Party be someone who thinks that all immigrants are rapists or drug dealers,” Paul said of Trump.
“We want one, Republican or Democrat, who’s reasonable and restrained and knows it’s a deterrent, but [is] not eager to use it, by any means,” Paul said.
Rand Paul is currently battling Jeb Bush for a tiny 3-4% percentage of the vote but despite their tiny percentage they both refuse to change their liberal-socialist tune into a more patriotic-nationalistic tune. Even hardcore liberal Marco Rubio changed his tune to match that of Trump and attract more potential votes.
His new tune is even worse than Jeb Bush’s tune who never went to far to call the Republican Party and Trump’s supporters “racist”. Perhaps Rand Paul is better suited with the Democrat Party and he should leave the Republican Party if he despises it so much.
