Rauner Berates Trump's Years-Old Comments On Women

Carl Nelson

Rauner has repeatedly been asked about the presidential campaign and why he wouldn’t talk about it -- despite being the state’s top Republican.

He’s said virtually nothing about the race or his party’s nominee.

Speaking to Chicago reporters Monday, Rauner did have something to say in response to the Access Hollywood tape in which Trump talks about kissing and groping women.

"The rhetoric, the language, the statements in that tape that’s recently come out: disgusting, appalling, outrageous," Rauner said. "Beyond any reasonable bounds of decency.

Earlier in the campaign, Rauner said he’d support the Republican nominee.

But today he pointed out that he hasn’t endorsed Trump for president.
