Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) didn’t exactly back former New York Mayor Rudy Guiliani (R) after the latter said that President Barack Obama doesn’t love his country.
Rubio told the Associated Press Thursday there was “no doubt” Obama loves the country. But he added, “I just think his policies are bad for our nation.”
Other Republicans, like Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R), haven’t pushed back on Giuliani’s remarks. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) refused to say whether he thought Obama loves America or not, but did point out that he does.
“I’ll tell you, I love America,” Walker said on Thursday. “There are plenty of people, Democrat, Republican, independent, and in between who love this country. I think we should talk about ways we love this country and that we feel passionately about America.”
