Rand Paul Explains Why He Thinks Donald Trump Is A 'Fake Conservative'

Rand Paul spoke with Wolf Blitzer of CNN telling him that he was not ready to exit out of the Republican presidential race.

He stated "I think it's important that we do differentiate ourselves from the celebrity that does appear to be dominating the polls. I've been pointing out that I'm a real conservative and frankly Donald Trump is a fake conservative.” Paul then discussed healthcare plans and government stimulus plans saying "Donald Trump was for it."

Paul went on to say "And most of us are for property rights. We don't think the government should use eminent domain to take property from small property owners and give it to big corporations. Donald Trump actually supports that. I don't think there's anything about his positions that are conservative. I think he's an angry individual with a lot of empty platitudes — but I think it's important that actually somebody point out that he's not a conservative."

According to the Real Clear Politics average of national polls, Paul is currently eight with 3.5 percent.
