Sam Donaldson Rips Trump’s ‘Small Base’: They’re Not Going to Run the Country and ‘They Never Will’

Speaking to CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday, veteran journalist Sam Donaldson ripped President Donald Trump‘s “small base” and said they will never run the country.

Donaldson’s words came during a conversation about the White House’s decision to yank Jim Acosta‘s hard pass.

“Well, the president — the president seems to believe that if he wants to do something, it should be done. Constitution aside, even Congress aside, certainly other than his base the American people aside. And it doesn’t work that way. And he’s not going to get away with it.”

Stelter then asked Donaldson how he sees this period of history ending.

“I think it ends with a change in — I hope the president’s attitude,” Donaldson replied. “I believe in forgiveness and redemption of sin. But, it’s going to change because he and people who enable him to do what he’s trying to do and has done so far are not going to be able to prevail.”

The legendary White House Correspondent then said this about Trump’s “small base”: “I think they’re a minority — who believe if the Nazis and protesters are on both sides, there are good people on both sides — his small base is not going to run this country. They don’t now and they never will.”
