Ronald Reagan’s sons, Ron and Michael, told Politico that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is nothing like their dad, according to a report published Wednesday.
“I can’t think of two people who are more diametrically opposed. This egotistical, narcissistic guy with the weird combover swanning in his private plane,” Ron, a liberal political commentator, told the publication. “I mean, look in the mirror, fat boy. Look at that hair, you’re ridiculous! Where do you get off talking on anybody’s appearance? It’s just so unchivalrous. My father would recoil at that sort of thing.”
Trump had often mentioned his love for Reagan and that the former President liked his attitude.
“He felt very good about me,” Trump said. “Frankly, he liked my attitude.”
Reagan’s son, Michael, who is a conservative political strategist, seemed to agree with his brother.
“It’s interesting to see how many of them … recreate my father in their image and likeness instead of his,” Michael told Politico. “Ronald Reagan would never take 11 million people or three million people or a million people and throw them out of the United States of America.”
Trump had said that he would deport millions of immigrants believed to be living in the United States illegally.
