He called on Republicans to “revitalized the great American middle and beware of cultural elites.”
Here’s what he said about it on ‘Fox and Friends’ Thursday.
Talking about my maiden speech with @foxandfriends. The elite class in this country have enriched themselves & ignored the great middle of our society for too long. And the DC establishment has gone right along. Time to do something about it pic.twitter.com/RL6S2bhwHN
