CNN national security analyst Samantha Vinograd says President Donald Trump is allowing America to remain vulnerable because his self-worth is glued to the idea that he won the presidency without any help from Russia.
Vinograd was part of a discussion today on the recent tweets where the president blasted just about every political foe he has while saying almost nothing about the Russians who were indicted for their 2016 election interference. Of course, Trump has been very reluctant to say anything negative about Russia throughout his political life, and Vinograd has no reason to think the latest news will change that.
“It’s clear that he has massive inferiority complex about how he won this election. That’s clear from all his tweets, every public statement that he makes, and he is not fulfilling his job as president, to state the obvious. He is so focused on his own narcissism that we’re stuck in the postgame of what Obama did or didn’t do, rather than saying, ‘okay, they meddled, what are we going to do now?'”
Vinograd was referring to Trump’s latest tweet, in which the president attacked Barack Obama while asking why his predecessor didn’t do more to deal with Russia.
