Congressman Gregory Meeks had some pretty tough words for President Trump in response to his attacks on Jeff Sessions.
Meeks told Wolf Blitzer he thinks Sessions should step down for the sake of “his own integrity,” but then went on to say this, “It seems clear to me that this President does not care about the United States of America. What this president cares about is Donald Trump.”
“What he would like to have is a regime in the similar fashion that Mr. Putin has and Mr. Erdogan has where he is an authoritarian and everyone just pledges their allegiance to him, not to the Constitution, not to what the right thing to do for this country. It always comes back to him and loyalty to him, and not about loyalty to the country.”
He pointed to past praise of Putin from the President and remarked upon the praise White House staffers bestow upon him (i.e. that Cabinet meeting a few weeks ago).
