Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker, who’s up for re-election in 2018, knocked the president on Thursday for his well-documented media obsession, telling a reporter for Journal Sentinel it serves as a “constant reminder and motivator” for people who don’t like him.
“He’s in the press so often—every day, almost every minute he’s in there—so for someone who doesn’t like him, it’s like a constant reminder and motivator,” Walker said.
Walker added that Democrats are “more motivated than any time I’ve seen in the last 25 years,” and are motivated largely by a dissatisfaction with Trump and his policies.
“The left is angry and their rhetoric is filled with hatred and they are motivated,” Walker told supporters in Boscobel, as the Journal Sentinel reports. “They’re angry at me, they’re angry at the president, they’re angry at all of you, they’re angry at anybody who even thinks about voting Republican.”
“The wind’s not at our back,” Walker said. “It’s not at our side. It is firmly in our face.”
“This election is going to be tougher than any one I have been involved with, including the recall,” Walker insisted.
