He’s ‘a racist’: David Cay Johnston explains why ‘Donald Trump doesn’t know anything’

Published

on

Daily Beast columnist David Cay Johnson told MSNBC’s Joy Reid Friday that President Donald Trump is nothing more than “a racist” who “doesn’t know anything.”

Johnson outlined the complicated history of Trump with people of color in discriminating against African-Americans and Asians in rental housing, employment and other complaints.

“Donald Trump is a racist and we need to recognize we’ve put a racist in the White House,” Johnson said. “We also need to recognize Donald doesn’t know anything. Donald doesn’t know a Sunni from a Shi’a from a Sikh nor why that would matter.”

Johnson urged others to look at the countries chosen for the immigration ban and those not chosen. He reiterated that those with Trump investments were not included, despite having a history of terrorism.

“The big unanswered question here is whether Donald Trump will defy a federal judges’ orders,” he continued. “You may not like a judge if a police officer says ‘stop.’ You may think he has no reason to do so, but you’re only sagacious to stop. The same thing with federal court orders. Presumably, some of the people around Donald are cautioning him not to overplay and if he’s going to defy an order to carefully pick. This would be a very, very unfortunate case if he wants to do that for him in his effort to essentially assume dictatorial powers.”

The New York Democrat, who chairs the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, revealed Wednesday that Bolton urged him "unprompted" in September to look into the ousting of former Ukraine ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.

Why didn’t John Bolton complain about this “nonsense” a long time ago, when he was very publicly terminated. He said, not that it matters, NOTHING!

‘The president is afraid’: Historian tells CNN that Trump’s attempt to block Bolton’s book is an epic blunder

Published

on

Historian Timothy Naftali, a clinical associate professor of public service at New York University, told a CNN panel on Wednesday that President Donald Trump's attempt to block former national security adviser John Bolton from publishing his book would be a massive political blunder.

While discussing the news that the Trump White House sent a formal threat to Bolton warning him against publishing his book, Naftali predicted that the move would backfire and make it more likely that vulnerable Republican senators would call for Bolton to testify.
