Judge Napolitano: Trump’s VP Just Another ‘Statist Conservative’

July 15, 2016—Judge Andrew Napolitano, senior judicial analyst for Fox News, gave both a realistic and damning review of Donald Trump’s decision to make Indiana Governor Mike Pence his vice presidential running mate, in an interview with Reason TV.

“He will help Donald Trump with credibility amongst mainstream conservative Republicans,” Napolitano said, “and if they’re elected, he’ll help Donald Trump in his dealings with the Congress.”

“This is another example of ‘let’s not preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution. Let’s find ways around it to achieve our ends.'”

Asked if Pence was a “statist conservative,” Napolitano responded, “Yes, absolutely, as almost all conservatives are.”
