Debbie Wasserman Schultz: Trump "Believes He Was Elected As A Dictator"


Debbie Wasserman Schultz appeared on FOX Business Network's Mornings with Maria with host Maria Bartiromo to discuss the firing of acting Attorney General Sally Yates and Trump's cabinet nominees. Wasserman called Trump's nominee for Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos an "enemy of public schools."

From Tuesday morning:

REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ (D-FL): I think it’s important to note that she did exactly what she said she would do if she was given an order by the President of the United States, which she believed violated the law...

Her answer to Jeff Sessions was that she would make sure that the Department of Justice followed the law. And frankly, because President Trump did absolutely nothing to consult the Department of Justice, his Secretary of Homeland Security, any members of Congress, the leadership of Congress, since they basically slapped this policy together in which they were barring immigrants and refugees for a period of time from countries, by the way, none of which had the 9/11 attackers come from...

The President’s tweet this morning was very interesting and telling because it shows that he believes he was elected as a dictator. There is an advised and consent role in the United States Senate, and that is what they are doing. He doesn’t just get to have his nominations rubber stamped, and he has nominated some very disturbing individuals.
