“Had the president not come down here and stuck his nose into this race, I would be the winner. I will tell you right now. I’m not scared of the president of the United States.

I think that we need a voice that is willing to actually say what needs to be said, and I think there are a lot of things that need to be said. This country’s not going down the right path. This country right now is going towards a path that should scare people. He is catering to the top 1 percent while absolutely turning his back on the bottom, the working class.”
