Podcast: Audio of Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen’s ‘Tele Town Hall,’ March 20, 2017
President Trump’s tweets are “out of control,” Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-11th Dist.) said on Monday night in his third “tele town hall.”
Frelinghuysen said he’s seen no evidence for the President’s claims that he was wiretapped during the campaign, and that he believes Trump should release his tax returns.
But he did not support a measure to compel that release because “I need to support the Chair’s ruling regardless of what the issue is.”
The 12-term congressman from Harding, who chairs the House Appropriations Committee, said he’s “not sold” on the healthcare reform bill that could come up for a vote on Thursday.
Frelinghuysen supports funding for the NIH, the Humanities and Public Radio, he said. As for the Mexican border, he told a caller he’s “not sure the wall is the answer.”
