She and Nicolle Wallace’s parents have different political views

Wallace’s political views began to change while working for John McCain’s presidential campaign in 2008. She was a staunch Republican before that, but she was dissatisfied with some things about the 2008 campaign.
Nicolle’s political views changed significantly during President Trump’s election campaign. She became a fierce opponent of Trump, and she still criticizes his presidency to this day.
Wallace says she’s a registered Republican but doesn’t act like one. But his parents are staunch Trump supporters. She said this to Stephen Colbert:
“From my parents’ point of view, Donald Trump should be on Mount Rushmore. I have no opinion on this because I need to learn and understand people who disagree with Donald Trump.
