CNN’s Erin Burnett: Trump ‘Sure Sounds Like a Hypocrite’ Today on Transparency
The White House announced today that it will not be disclosing visitor logs of people who visit, but CNN’s Erin Burnett tonight pointed out that the president “sure sounds like a hypocrite.”
In addition to criticism Trump has received from many, including Judicial Watch, people took note of the following tweets of the president’s back when Barack Obama was still in office:
Why is @BarackObama spending millions to try and hide his records? He is the least transparent President–ever–and he ran on transparency.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 6, 2012
Why does Obama believe he shouldn't comply with record releases that his predecessors did of their own volition? Hiding something?
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 30, 2012
And on CNN tonight, Erin Burnett played clips of Trump hammering his predecessor on the very issue of transparency.
She also pointed out to former Trump campaign senior communications advisor Jason Miller that the Trump campaign “benefitted from” information that came out thanks to visitor logs. Miller brought up the security issue the White House raised, but David Gergen called that “total BS.”
