Perry on 'Cancer on Conservatism' Trump: 'Beware of False Prophets'
Trump has announced plans for a press conference at the border in Laredo, Texas, on Thursday.
“I hope he can find the border because I’m not sure he’s ever been there before,” Perry said. “But in all seriousness, he owes an apology to the men and women of the Texas National Guard. I think he owes an apology to Texas Ranger Recon teams.”
Perry advised Trump to recognize that it is not any state’s responsibility to secure the border.
“That is the federal government’s responsibility,” Perry said. “If he wants to spew invectives, I would suggest rather than the state of Texas and the leadership of the state of Texas and in turn the men and women who put their lives on the line on that border to help secure it, he should point that to the federal government that has failed and failed to secure that border.”
As Trump continues to rise in the polls, Perry recommended Republicans “beware of false prophets” and “not let itching ears be tickled by messengers who appeal to anger, division and resentment.”
“Resentment is the poison we swallow that we hope harms another. My fellow Republicans, don’t take the poison,” he said.
