Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) stated in divorce proceedings that she turned down the opportunity to be Donald Trump’s vice-president because she believed her husband Gail “hated any successes I have,” the Guardian reports.
In an affidavit filed as part of divorce proceedings with her husband of 26 years, Ernst states: “In the summer of 2016, I was interviewed by Candidate Trump to be vice president of the United States. I turned Candidate Trump down, knowing it wasn’t the right thing for me or my family. I continued to make sacrifices and not soar higher out of concern for Gail and our family.”
She added: “He hated any successes I had and would belittle me and get angry any time I achieved a goal.”Save to Favorites
