Key Highlights Below:
Don’t Get Distracted:
“For us to win the presidential race in 2024, we don’t need to be distracted,” Kemp told CBS News’ Robert Costa in an interview on Monday. “We need to be focused on the future. We need to be telling the American people what we’re for.”
“President Trump has been targeted in a lot of different ways – many of them unfairly,” he added. “But also I think there’s some serious concerns in this indictment. But at the end of the day, there’s a jury that’s going to make that decision. And quite honestly, I think it’s a distraction politically. I think in some ways it’s exactly what the Democrats want.”
Focus On The Future:
Kemp said Republican candidates should be focused on issues like inflation, crime and border security, arguing that voters care more about those issues than the accusations against Trump.
“That’s really what I believe Republicans need to stay focused on, and not get bogged down in the politics of this indictment,” he said.
Taking Our Country Back Does NOT Start With…
“The reason I was critical of President Trump is because I think he needs to stay focused just like anybody else running for president on tackling those issues,” Kemp told CBS News. “I don’t think, ya know, congratulating Kim Jong Un is that kind of play that helps us win in November of 2024.”
