Bob Dole, a former US senator from Kansas and 1996 Republican presidential candidate, says he’s grown a bit weary of ex-President Donald Trump.
“I’m a Trumper,” Dole told USA Today in an interview published Thursday, but added, “I’m sort of Trumped out, though.”
Dole, who has supported Trump since he won the Republican nomination in 2016, continued, “He lost the election, and I regret that he did, but they did.”
“He had Rudy Giuliani running all over the country, claiming fraud. He never had one bit of fraud in all those lawsuits he filed and statements he made,” said Dole, who turned 98 on Thursday and is battling lung cancer.
Trump made repeated and baseless claims following the 2020 election that it was rigged against him.
