ABC World News Tonight host Tom Llamas on Saturday night confronted President Donald Trump’s “stunning” statement about due process rights.
Trump on Saturday morning complained that people’s lives were being “destroyed” over “mere” allegations after two former White House staffers, Rob Porter and David Sorensen, resigned over claims they beat their ex-wives.
“Both accused of domestic abuse, now the scandal rippling through the Oval Office with chief of staff John Kelly indicating his willingness to resign,” Llamas explained.
But that was too much for some supporters of President Donald Trump, who took to Twitter to express their discontent with the segment.
Biased ABC News opens the nightly news attacking President Trump with this exact line "His stunning tweet calling for due process." Stunning? Does ABC disagree with our justice system and tradition? #BiasedMedia #FakeNews

@TomLlamasABC @ABC is an outrageous left-wing radical, two Ohio policemen gunned down in ambush and he ignores it, instead leading off with more attacks on @POTUS #Trump and police in car chase. Llamas is sick!

With new ‘imposed contract,’ Trump’s EPA tries to neuter worker rights
Agency announces new collective bargaining agreement—which was not agreed upon
The Trump administration continued its attacks on federal workers this week with a new "agreement" that would kneecap the power of unions representing EPA employees.
The development, as watchdog group Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) noted Wednesday, is a new "Master Collective Bargaining Agreement" between the federal agency and the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE). Far from an agreement, said PEER, the document is really an "edict."
Ex-prosecutor explains why Trump feels like he can lie about Robert Mueller
On Wednesday, former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that Trump is everything he accuses special counsel Robert Mueller of being — and he feels confident in gaslighting the American people because he knows no one has the ability to challenge him on it.
"The president falsely accused Mueller of illegally deleting anti-Trump text messages between two former FBI employees," said Blitzer. "In fact, those messages were wiped from government phones by the Justice Department in accordance with longstanding department policy. What's your reaction to that baseless, personal attack from the president on Mueller?"
Soccer star slams Trump for attacking her teammate: He hates women he ‘cannot control or grope’
On Wednesday, U.S. Women's Soccer champion Ali Krieger rebuked President Donald Trump for his attacks on her teammate Megan Rapinoe, saying that the president feels threatened by women that he "cannot control or grope":
In regards to the “President’s” tweet today, I know women who you cannot control or grope anger you, but I stand by @mPinoe & will sit this one out as well. I don’t support this administration nor their fight against LGBTQ+ citizens, immigrants & our most vulnerable.
