Eric Cantor slams Trump, tea party at length in overseas interview

“I would not say Donald Trump is reflective of the Republican Party, he’s not a conservative. A lot of the Tea Party issues out there and the agenda that they are pursuing, they’re more populist radicals than they are conservatives,” Cantor said on BBC show Hardtalk.

“Real conservatives are conservatives who believe in progress through incremental progress and a temperament that is befitting of a conservative. Not a revolutionary, and that’s really the foundation upon which the U.S. was built and the Constitution that we have, but I do think as we get closer you’ll see a lot more seriousness on the part of the voters.”
