Scott Walker Says Donald Trump Used Democratic Talking Points Against Him

Scott Walker lashed out at Donald Trump's criticisms by saying he's using Democratic talking points to attack him with.
Views:

Scott Walker joined ABC's This Week and fended off Donald Trump's criticisms of his handling of the state of Wisconsin by saying Trump is using Democratic talking points against him.

STEPHANOPOULOS: You just heard Donald Trump say Wisconsin is not performing. Your response?

GOV. SCOTT WALKER (R-WI), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Well, he's using the talking points of the Democrats. Those talking points haven't worked in the past four and a half years, as we won three elections in four years, not just with Republican support, but with a huge margin amongst Independents and even some discerning Democrats.

Why?

Because we took a $3.6 billion budget deficit. We fixed it. We did it while cutting taxes by billions of dollars.

Our roads are actually -- are better. Our schools are better. Our state is better.

Those are the same talking points the Democrats used. They didn't work in the past. They're not going to work now.

But the one thing that I do want to clarify is I do think that there is some real frustration out there. It's way you not only see his numbers up, you see some of the other candidates who have not run for office before. They're angry at Washington. Heck, I'm angry at Washington. I'm angry at my own -- my own party leadership, who told us they were going to repeal ObamaCare and we still don't see a bill on the desk of the president.

I think that's where the real frustration is

In Trump's interview segment, he said that he liked Walker very much, but that Wisconsin should be doing better than ranking #38 out of 50 states in the US.

I wonder how The Donald is going to feel about Walker's attempts to paint him as a Democratic operative?
