Trump Campaign Manager Fires Back at Lawrence O’Donnell for Saying POTUS Always ‘Backs Down’

Earlier this week, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell said President Trump always backs down in negotiations, despite his “tough guy” reputation. O’Donnell argued that far from being the deal-maker, time after time after time, Trump always backs down.

“We have never seen anything like it,” he said. “Donald Trump is the weakest president we have ever seen, because no president has ever backed down as often, or as fast, or as completely and weakly as Donald Trump.”

Brad Parscale, Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, got wind of the segment and responded online to O’Donnell:

“Just another journalist with a phony opinion to set their political narrative.”

Parscale clearly enjoys going after the media as much as the President himself does, having recently called for CNN’s Jim Acosta to lose his press credentials for shouting out questions during the North Korea summit.
