Transcript for Charles Koch: Why We're Skipping GOP Convention Where Paul Ryan Won't Be 'White Knight'
I've read that freedom partners is going to skipped the Republican Convention in Cleveland's veteran I think that's right now so why there's going to be the waffle YY go. I mean we're we're we're not interested in politics where interest and Ian. And in in moving us toward a culture and policies that only will people improve their lives just that's the way we run our business outsourced made a successful. That's why don't make that's what's made the country successful in the past that the extent it was applied. And we're loosening. So. I mean we don't want to be a part. C don't see anything good coming out of that convention well we're hopeful. But we can't do we tried to change it we've. We've mad as you know we've met you've interviewed a bunch of these candidates. And and you see where they're coming from. So we've tried to to change for the better. To but we're immense success but you won't you you'll get involved in this effort to try to sway the the uncommitted delegates and we get down to a brokered convention I mean. No that's another rumor out there that rumor is that denies said that over Brian's going to be an issue it. I never said any such thing if I'd said anything you like to see Paul Ryan's the Republican nominee. Well I think he's better on the issues than the others I mean he's he he supports criminal justice reform. He supports getting rid of the obstacles for opportunities to the disadvantage he supports the good part of getting rid of this corporate welfare. So a lot of issues we agree on more more and then most of the candidates. But. That is he said I mean he can't come and now it and be nominated when he did run I mean that part that what signals that got it. He used them against possible us all white Knight theory that is just no well I don't. Well I I don't see how he can win. If he did. I mean that would that would create the impression this whole thing is rate which. That's the opposite of the direction we want so are you really prepared to sit out the presidential election even if it means. Date Democrats have a better chance taking over the congress. Well. Once again we're we're not. For somebody because they're Republican or against them because they're Democrat. What we want is that congress and the White House. That wants to move us toward a system. Of mutual benefit away from this system. A two tiered society. So that's what we're looking for people who support these policies. And if the Democrats would do a better job we would support them but we're not going to get in any. Campaign where we believe that week we can't. Make a different right that's no point in. So that so those of the two who will one do a lot better job of moving this toward policies that will make people's lives better. And and wind are getting involved make a different.
