When Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) was interviewed on Friday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” the Fox News host asked him about the possibility of a third-party run by newly-registered independent Donald Trump.
“To each his own, he may do it. I doubt he’ll do it—if he really wanted to be president, why did he walk away? Why did he become concerned he couldn’t do it as a Republican?” Paul asked.
“I have no idea what he is going to do,” Paul added. “I don’t think he will be calling me for advice. I don’t think he will ask for an appointment to come see me to get advice or an endorsement. I’m not expecting that.”
See Paul’s comments here (via Mediate):
“Why have you never kissed his ring like virtually all of the other candidates have?” Cavuto asked.
“I didn’t think it was necessary or appropriate,” Paul replied. “How could he endorse what I’m doing? My positions are pretty much opposite of what he talks about. He doesn’t believe in free market. He likes the Federal Reserve. He is not a free trader. He likes tariffs. So there is not a lot we have in common.”
“So we won’t be seeing you at the Trump Tower anytime soon, Ron Paul?” Cavuto asked.
“Oh, no! Not likely,” Paul responded. “If he wants to converse I’ll be glad to take his call.”
