Former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf offered his views regarding the results of a recent survey indicating that a majority of Democrats would not stay and fight if the U.S. was invaded like Ukraine last month.
In an interview with Fox News’ “Lawrence Jones Cross Country,” Wolf, who served during former President Donald Trump’s term, addressed the shocking survey from Quinnipiac University that only 40 percent of Democrats would take up arms to defend their own country.
“I want to get your reaction to another poll right here because I found it very interesting here showed that the majority of Americans would fight back and arm themselves, stay and fight if, you know America was invaded like the Ukrainian people, but when you break it down by party, this got me, 68 percent of the GOP said they would stay and fight but only 40 percent of Democrats said they would fight,” Jones said, asking: “Are you surprised by that Mr. Secretary?”
“Well I am, I’m not surprised by that first number,” Wolf began.
“I think the vast majority of Americans would stay and fight but when you break it down along party lines I agree with you that a majority of Democrats would not stay and fight and I think what this tells you is they don’t believe America is worth defending at the end of the day, these are individuals, many of them that condemn America, believe it was conceived in sin,” he continued.
“They don’t fight for our history, they don’t want to defend our heritage, they don’t want to defend our workers, and they don’t want to defend our borders at the end of the day so, unfortunately, when you think about it that way, I guess the poll is not that surprising, but it should be, it should wake up a lot of folks,” he said.
“We’re in deep trouble if that’s the case,” Jones replied.
