NYT's Nicholas Confessore: Trump Did Drain The Swamp


New York Times writer Nicholas Confessore said during an MSNBC panel discussion that President Trump did drain the swamp.

"Drain the swamp is important. Drain the swamp did not mean the same thing to his voters as it does in the conventional usage of lobbyists. When he said drain the swamp, I think his voters, from being on the trail, his voters thought of Washington as a place kind of run by weird confligeration of the GOP establishment and the Clinton Foundation handing out government benefits to people who are not like me. That's their kind of idea of the swamp. And he said I'm going to break up that swamp. In a sense he did. I'm just saying," Confessore explained.

"Maybe," MSNBCer Katy Tur said.
