Three-time candidate for president Ron Paul said Wednesday he does not like any of the remaining GOP candidates in the 2016 race, and would not support Donald Trump if he were to win the Republican nomination.
Trump has been able to tap into the anger and fear of a large "minority" of voters, Paul told CNBC's "Squawk Box." He said the billionaire businessman acts like he has all the answers but "zero" realistic solutions to the problems facing the nation.
"I hear the ability of politicians to capitalize on the worries," the libertarian Republican continued. "They're able to use the blame game." Paul served 12 terms as a U.S. congressman from Texas.

I doubt he would have supported anyone. He is an angry man.

Spoken like a true looser!

5 more points for Trump!
Excellent, I was afraid I’d find myself on the same side as RuPaul.
Hey, who wants to edit the Fed now?
So he is going to support Hillary?
His followers feel the same LOL.
the days of "realistic" solutions to the problems facing the nation are long gone. If there were realistic solutions, we wouldn't need a candidate like Donald Trump.
Well, that’s a relief!
They might even vote for Trump.
Has Pat Paulson weighed in yet???
About the same impact.
Supreme Court Justice William J. Clinton....
This juggernaut will roll with or without ya.
Only a loser would spell “loser,” “looser.” Or something like that. My inner grammar nazi needed some fresh air.
He can get the FED audited, Ron. Take your kabuki, Best Controlled Opposition For a FED audit, and exit the stage now.
