Only 7 months ago, Condoleezza Rice was chewing her fingernails, waiting to see what the heck was going to happen during one of the most controversial Presidential Elections in U.S. history.
At one point she even called for the then- Presidential candidate Donald Trump to “withdraw” from the race.
After the Access Hollywood tape from 2005 was released Rice tweeted “Enough! Donald Trump should not be President. He should withdraw. As a Republican, I hope to support someone who has the dignity and stature to run for the highest office in the greatest democracy on earth.”
Enough! Donald Trump should not be President. He should withdraw.As a Republican, I hope to support someone who has the dignity and stature to run for the highest office in the greatest democracy on earth.
Well, it looks as though she has completely changed her mind.
Since a recent meeting with President Trump, she’s had wonderful things to say.
“He is the president of the United States and every American should respect the decision of our democracy. And the presidency is more than one person and I will do whatever I can to help the occupant of that office succeed,” explained Rice in an interview with Sean Hannity.
She went on to explain that she learned to really like his personality after having a meeting with him 5 weeks ago.
“I did like him. We had a chance to spend some time together about five weeks ago or so. I found him engaged. He was asking very important questions, getting ready for his meeting with the Chinese,” explained Rice.
“And he also, and I respect this, he saw something in the American public that I just didn’t see. A friend of mine called it the ‘do you hear me now?’ election,” said Rice. Trump did see it. “I respect that,” said Rice.
