Governor Scott Walker dispelled a couple of myths Thursday, during a stop in De Pere.
First, he addressed a recent tweet he sent where he vowed to support the party’s presidential nominee. Walker’s said the national media made a big deal about the fact that his message didn’t mention presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump by name, although Walker said he did say it just a day before.
Walker blamed the omission of both Trump and presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s names on the character limits imposed by Twitter. “I think it is clear that Donald Trump is a better pick than Hillary Clinton,” he added.
Walker also addressed his plans to speak at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland later this month. He said his speech there will focus on his support for Trump, and the differences between what Republicans and Democrats have to offer this country.
He also downplayed reports that many prominent Republicans have decided not to attend the convention. “I think it’s a lot of more hype at the national media level than anything else.”
