Mark Kirk is the Illinois senator who has criticized president president Obama for $400 million Iran payment a “ransom” — but it didn’t stop there.
“We can’t have the president of the United States acting like the drug dealer in chief,” Republican Mark Kirk told the editorial board of The State Journal-Register of Springfield.
“Giving clean packs of money to a … state sponsor of terror. Those 500-euro notes will pop up across the Middle East. …. We’re going to see problems in multiple [countries] because of that money given to them.”
TJ Helmstetter, DNC spokesperson, Criticized Senator Kirk: “In calling our first African American president a drug dealer, Mark Kirk has demonstrated that Donald Trump’s hateful rhetoric and divisive politics have taken over the entire Republican Party. Kirk has spent millions of dollars trying to distance himself from Trump but it’s clear that the Republican Party has become the party of Trump. Mark Kirk owes the First Family, the people of Illinois, and the American public an apology for his ugly and racially tinged remarks.”
