Rick Santorum’s Desperate Attempt to Divert Attention from Trump Post Interview

Rick Santorum

Rick Santorum, former Republican Party Senator and abiding defender of Trump, has come forward, creating new controversy following the President’s interview with George Stephanopoulos. While the President has many supporters, Santorum can be called one of the blind supporters of the President and his administration.

During the interview with Stephanopoulos on Wednesday, Trump admitted that he will accept the information on his opponents of 2020 elections from the foreign government. However, on asking if he would report it to the FBI Director, he answered with a “maybe”.

“It’s not an interference, they have information — I think I’d take it. If I thought there was something wrong, I’d go maybe to the FBI — if I thought there was something wrong,” Trump said.

Even though Rick Santorum has desperately come forward in an attempt to explain already clear situation, a month ago Trump had claimed in front of the media that he won’t take the help from the foreign government against his opponents of 2020 elections.

This interview and Santorum’s attempt to clean Trump’s approach, came after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s meeting with the Democratic MPs.

According to the always-right perspective of Trump, “There’s nothing wrong with listening. If somebody called from a country, Norway [and said], ‘We have information on your opponent’ — oh, I think I’d want to hear it.”

Trump further said that “the FBI director is wrong”, when FBI Director Christopher Wray claimed that the FBI should be brought in notice if the foreign government offers information about any opponent.

Other than Rick Santorum, many politicians have opposed Trump’s approach on aid in 2020 elections by the foreign government. House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler posted on social network that it is “shocking” to know about the foreign interference in an American election part.

Similarly, Democratic Rep. Brenda Lawrence of Michigan said that with the statements, Trump’s meaning “is clear — he didn’t stutter, he said the FBI probably wouldn’t understand it”. She said, “It is past sad. It is past frustration. This is criminal. It is criminal, and we need to hold this President accountable.”

While there is nothing noteworthy of such comments by the President or his blind supporter Rick Santorum, still Trump should be aware of his position and think before saying anything like Mueller report proved no collusion, despite the otherwise comments of Jerry Nadler.
