On Supply Chain Issues
“It’s a combination of things. Number one is that it really comes down to the very basics that we learn in economics: supply and demand. We’ve had a shortage of supply because of Covid disruptions in the case of oil and gas because of the war. And also because of domestic decisions have been made by this administration and an increase in supply, particularly when you pump a bunch of money into the economy, 1.9 trillion dollars the way Biden did last March when the Democrats passed that bill.”

On Support from Law Enforcement
“It’s pretty simple: I’ve always been on the side of law enforcement. And what’s worse for them is that Val Demings was a police chief, she was a police officer, she should know better.”

On Demings’ Voting Record
“In the Democratic Party, it doesn’t matter what you personally believe. You have to follow the line with the most radical elements in that party and if you don’t, then they come after you like they’ve done Kyrsten Sinema in Arizona, like they’ve tried to do to Joe Manchin and they try to demonize and destroy you. In my party, we have people that vote differently all the time and we’ll move on to the next issue because we allow for those differences of opinion. She’s voted with Pelosi 100% of the time. She gets to the Senate, she’ll vote with Schumer 100% of the time. It doesn’t matter matter what she believes, whatever he tells her she needs to do, that’s what she’s going to fall in line and do because that’s what her record is.”
