Bernard Schoenburg: Rep. Davis says Trump meeting went well: “I don’t agree with everything Donald Trump says and the stances he puts out, and I don’t agree with everything Mark Kirk says and the stances that he puts out. But they’re both the Republican candidates on the ballot, and … I’m going to support them both,” Davis said. In early June, Davis called “racist and unacceptable” Trump’s initial criticism of a federal judge, born in Indiana but of Mexican descent, presiding over a case involving Trump University. But Davis didn’t withdraw support for Trump at the time. And in the interview Friday, when asked about a tweet Trump’s campaign disseminated in early July featuring a picture of HILLARY CLINTON, $100 bills and a six-pointed star many took to be the Jewish Star of David, Davis said, “I don’t think I can comment on his intent” or reaction. “I don’t agree with everything that any candidate at any level of office says 100 percent of the time,” Davis said.
