With only a few weeks to go before the election, Hillary Clinton’s running mate Tim Kaine has become a major thorn in her side. Earlier this week, even Democrats admitted that Kaine came up short in his debate with Donald Trump’s running mate Mike Pence, and millions were put off by the Virginia senator’s aggressive and pushy attitude.
Now, damning videos have surfaced from Kaine’s past that go against some of Clinton’s most treasured agendas.
These days, Clinton is constantly accusing Trump of being a racist bigot due to his views on immigration. That’s why it came as a devastating blow to her when a video surfaced showing that Kaine held the very same views as Trump not so long ago.
“What I would do on the immigration, you know, comprehensive reform is this,” Kaine said while running for senator in 2012, according to The Gateway Pundit. “I would require those who are here illegally to sort of raise their hand and come forward and say ‘we broke the law.'”
“By admitting that you’re breaking the law you’re going to have that as a criminal violation, as a legal violation and you’re going to have to pay a penalty and it’s going to be a significant penalty that you will pay over a period of time, whether it’s a fine or whether it’s an escalated tax rate, you’re going to have to pay that,” he said. “We would take that money that was being paid by those who have come here unlawfully and we would use it to increase border security.”
Making matters worse for Clinton is a 2005 campaign ad of Kaine’s in which he said he believes in traditional marriage and the sanctity of life.
“I’m conservative,” he said.
These videos could make liberal voters lose faith in a Clinton administration at a crucial time in this election. What do you think about this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
