President Donald Trump's Department of the Interior angrily lashed out on Tuesday after being criticized for spreading a "propaganda video" one week before the election.


It started when controversial Interior Secretary David Bernhardt posted a campaign-style video on Twitter, arguing Trump is a conservationist.

The video was blasted by Tim Fullerton, who ran the department's digital team during the Obama administration.

"I ran the Interior digital team during President Obama’s re-election in 2012. I would have been fired for doing this," Fullerton posted on Twitter.

"This is a propaganda video created with your tax dollars meant to bolster the President’s chances of being re-elected. This is way outside the lines," he concluded.

The Interior Department's press secretary angrily lashed-out at the criticism.
