WHO IS KARL ROVE?
ROVE FIRES BACK:
Rove, in a statement to Reuters, dismissed Trump’s criticism.
“I’ve been called a lot of things in my career, but never a RINO. I’ve voted for every Republican presidential candidate since I turned 18 and have labored only for GOP (Republican) candidates since then,” said the 70-year-old Rove. “I have a different recollection of Mr. Trump’s views on 5G and our conversation election night. I’ll continue to use my whiteboard and voice to call balls and strikes.”
The day before, Rove had penned an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, “Trump’s Appeal Rings Hollow at CPAC,” that argued against a Trump presidential run in 2024. Trump retorted that he had “the largest television audience of the week.”
