‘This Is Frightening’: Charles Koch Tears Into Trump and Cruz’s Rhetoric

trump cruz kochDuring his lengthy interview on ABC’s This Week today, Charles Koch opened up about some things he’s alarmed by from the Republicans running for president.

Koch first made it clear he and his brother aren’t funneling money into any Republican presidential campaign––or even the Stop Trump movement. He said, “We haven’t put a penny in any of these campaigns.”

ABC’s Jon Karl asked him about his reaction to Donald Trump‘s Muslim ban. He said that’s “antithetical to our approach” and said he was alarmed by Trump suggesting a Muslim registry, likening it to Nazi Germany (though Trump did walk that back).

Koch also addressed Ted Cruz talking about “making the sand glow” with carpet-bombing in the Middle East. Koch said that’s clear hyperbole, but said for someone to think that appeals to Americans, “that is frightening.”

And after he made the rather remarkable revelation that Hillary Clinton could be a better president than the Republicans––assuming her actions do not reflect her rhetoric––he made that same point about Republican actions vs. some of the rhetoric he’s been hearing.
