Earlier in the afternoon, the president remarked that an “invasion” of immigrants were entering the United States via its southern border with Mexico. He also admitted to knowing that the term could be upsetting.

“People hate the word invasion,” Trump said, “but that’s what it is.”

Trump also told reporters that he does not see white nationalism as a rising threat.

Published

In his column for the Daily Beast, conservative -- and former Republican -- Matt Lewis explained that Donald Trump's decision to turn on Dr. Anthony Fauci is yet another example of his habit of destroying advisers who don't tell him what he wants to hear which is why and, in this case, more Americans are going to die in the coronavirus pandemic.
