On Monday, CNN’s Don Lemon said that President Trump trust world dictators more than he does members of his own administration.
“I really want to talk to you about the president of the United States and his fascination with dictators from around the world,” Lemon said as he opened his Monday night show.
“For President Trump, it doesn’t seem to matter whether the facts support what the Saudis say. What matters is that they deny it. Strongly.”
“Why is this president so eager to take the word of the leader of a repressive regime?” he added.
“We say here on this show all the time, facts matter. It matters what happened to Jamal Khashoggi. It matters what Vladimir Putin did during our presidential election and what he may do again,” he said.
Lemon added, “It matters what Kim Jong-un does. So what happens if President Trump gets to a point where he needs to rein in these dictators? To protect Americans, to protect the free world. Does this president have any leverage left? Or has he left it all on the table and made a deal with the devil?”
