Donald Trump says Rand Paul is playing a two-faced game in Kentucky.
The 2016 Republican presidential candidate took a swipe at the Kentucky senator, one of his rivals for the GOP nomination, at a press conference in New Hampshire on Friday, accusing Paul of “using the people of Kentucky” as a fallback option in case he doesn’t get the presidential nomination.
“Either run for Senate and do a good job or run for president. You don’t run for president, and by the way if I don’t make it, I will become your senator reluctantly,” he said. “If I were a good, strong Republican from Kentucky, I would run against him in a heartbeat.”
Trump said that if he were from Kentucky he’d take Paul on himself.
“If I was in Kentucky, I would run against him,” Trump said. “Believe me, I would win.”
