In this episode of “The Glenn Beck Podcast,” Glenn sat down with Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R) to discuss how and why they have both changed their opinions of President Donald Trump since the election in 2016.
Glenn noted that Trump has “accomplished some amazing things” during his presidency, in particular his decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem one year ago.
“I have been pleasantly surprised at what [Trump] has done,” Mike noted. “Now, I don’t agree with him on everything … I disagree with him, for example, on trade policy. But I have great respect for the fact that he came to Washington and actually did what he said he was going to do, more so that any president in modern U.S. history.”
Mike said that he “fundamentally misunderstood” Trump in 2016. “I didn’t really know him at the time. I’ve gotten to know him since then, and we’ve actually become friends since then. We talk on a very regular basis,” he added.
“I’m going to vote for him. I’m going to support him,” continued Mike. “I think he has proven that he is willing to drain the swamp, even when it doesn’t want to be drained.”
