John Boehner: Trump's No Conservative, but He's Better Than Hillary


Former Speaker of the House John Boehner says that GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump is "barely a Republican" and "not a conservative."

"He kind of became a Republican in order to run," Boehner said.

Nevertheless, Boehner says he's still voting for Trump.

Watch John Boehner's comments on Donald Trump to Vice News.

"The election is pretty simple...it's about who's going to appoint the next Supreme Court nominees... two, three, maybe four," he said. "I believe that Donald Trump's view of who these judges should be is much closer to where I am than...Hillary Clinton."

Fox News' Brit Hume asked Boehner in an interview on Wednesday if he wanted his "old job" back as speaker of the House. He responded with a "no thanks" and a smile.

"Paul Ryan is in a very difficult spot. He's the leader of the majority party and if the Republicans aren't the majority party anymore in 2017, then he's not the speaker," Boehner said. "Paul is looking out for his members...in this crazy political season."

When asked about Trump's comments on women recently released in the media, Boehner said, "You can't defend it. Frankly, Donald Trump isn't trying to defend it."
