Senator Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, fought back after Donald Trump called him a “spoiled brat.” On August 11, Paul said that Trump’s kids have lived a life of privilege.
Paul, a 2016 Republican presidential candidate, was campaigning at Riley’s Gun Shop in Hooksett, New Hampshire, when he told reporters that Trump’s kids did not grow up “working at the local Pizza Hut.”
“If we're talking about who's a spoiled brat or not, my two kids all work minimum-wage jobs,” Paul told reporters. “Do you think the Trump kids have been working at the local Pizza Hut? So I live a pretty ordinary life, and I'm not begrudging him his wealth, but there's nothing about me or my family that's spoiled.”
Paul also criticized Trump himself, calling him a “fake conservative.” He went on to say, “I've worked from a young age, my kids all work, and we're proud of them for working minimum-wage jobs, delivering pizzas, working in a pizza place, working in a call center, all my boys work and they've worked and we're proud of them for working.” Paul has three sons.
“[Trump] calls people fat and stupid and that's kind of funny, but do we really want a reality TV star to be in charge of our country and our economy?” Paul said.
