Former Secretary of State Colin Powell has been very critical of the G.O.P. since leaving public life, and he leveled a bit more criticism at the GOP during his appearance on ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday.
“The Republican party needs to take a very hard look at itself and understand that the country has changed” said Powell. What specific views does Powell take issue with? According to Powell, climate change, taxes, and racism are on the top of the list of issues which render Republicans unpalatable to much of the American electorate. Powell says the party has a “dark vein of intolerance” running through it and “if they don’t change” along with America’s changing demographics, “they are going to be in trouble.”
