Trump Finally Speaks After Visiting Survivors…And Boasts About How Much People Love Him
Donald Trump thanked first responders during a stop at El Paso’s Emergency Operations Center tonight.
He opened by saying how much people love and respect the Office of the Presidency. Meaning him, of course, because everything is about Trump.
However, he quickly changed his tone and began to criticize Nan Whaley, the Democratic mayor of Dayton, Ohio, and the state’s Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown.
“They shouldn’t be politicking today. I had it with Sherrod Brown. He and the mayor Nan Whaley they asked to go in, ‘Could we possibly go in and make the tour with you.’ I said, ‘Yeah, let’s do it.’ They couldn’t believe what they saw. And they said it to people. They’ve never seen anything like it. The entire hospital, no different than what we had in El Paso, the entire hospital, was, I mean everybody was so proud of the job they did. Because they did a great job,” Trump said.
He then called them very dishonest, saying, “I get on Air Force One where they do have a lot of televisions, I turn on the television and there they are saying, ‘Well, I don’t know if it was appropriate for the President to be here.'”
