Appearing on CNN with Fareed Zakaria, former Obama-era Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson called Trump a “failed experiment.”
“Four years ago, we engaged in a very dangerous experiment by electing someone who was utterly unqualified for office, who had no moral or legal compass and frankly had impulses toward fascism and autocracy,” Johnson told Zakaria.
“My hope is that as time passes Americans will realize this was a failed experiment and we should never try it again. Just look at the consequences of that over the last four years,” he added. “There’s a track record now in which Donald Trump and his presidency should be judged, so in our democracy, if Congress doesn’t step up to this, the American public must do so.”
“My hope is that as time passes, Americans will realize this was a failed experiment, and we should never try it again.”
