New Yorker: “in a final act of revenge,” WH made clear “Trump opposed Vindman’s promotion. Senior Administration officials told Esper and Ryan McCarthy, the Secretary of the Army, to dig for misconduct that would justify blocking Vindman’s promotion.”
Trump condensed: My senior policy advisor? I had nothing to do with him. My campaign chairman? Only with me for a short time. My national security advisor? A liar. My foreign policy advisor? He was just a coffee boy. Don Jr? Um ... fake news!
When President Trump has literally been shown data and charts by senior officials showing what year(s) the debt is expected to explode, Trump has referenced the first year & said “yeah, but I won’t be here.” That’s a direct quote
