“So listen, Katie Britt is definitely a rising star among Republicans. I think it was a smart choice. She's an incredibly impressive person. She ran a smart race in Alabama.

It was an opportunity. I think her focus on the border and the economy is what Republicans wanted to hear. The substance of what she said was great. The direction was very, very strange.”
