Donald Trump has had more of his own people speak out against him than any other president in history. There is no shortage of administration members, past and present, that will trash or publicly disagree with Trump for his horrendous leadership.
This morning, former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci made an appearance on CNN that will make Trump explode with rage. In speaking with Alisyn Camerota, Scaramucci blasted Trump’s policy of having child migrants separated from their parents at the Southern border — an inhumane policy that Trump has recently been getting ripped apart for. Scaramucci didn’t beat around the bush as he said:
I think the president should stop it. Aside from which it’s inhumane and its cruel, I think he needs to step back, stop listening his aides and his advisers.
He’s got to step in there and end this thing because I think it’s an atrocious policy, it’s inhumane, it’s offensive to the average American. It does not represent American values.
The immediate remedial need is to change this right now.”
Camerota responded, “And the president can do that single-handedly.”
What Scaramucci said next was everything that Trump did not want to be said on national television. He said:
“We all know the president can do that, he has the executive power to do that.”
Trump has been acting like he has his hands tied on this issue and can’t do anything to fix it. In fact, just this morning Trump was blaming Democrats:
Scaramucci’s words are the honest truth (for once) – Trump CAN do something about this – he just won’t. You can watch Scaramucci call Trump out below:
“I think the President should stop it,” says Anthony Scaramucci of what he calls the “atrocious” zero tolerance border policy.
“I’m here to say that it’s very bad policy and that the President is a humane guy … and he doesn’t need this type of visual” https://t.co/lObvimTxb1
