Colin Powell Rips Trump on Immigration, NATO, Anti-Press Rhetoric: The World Can’t Believe What’s Happening

 

H/T Mediaite.

Colin Powell is upset because President Trump is not following the One World Government Plan and President Trump is Making America Great Again.

In spite of what the author of this story says, Colin Powell is not a Republican at the best he is a RINO.

We all know how big a failure Madeleine Not to Bright (Albright ) and her foreign policy was.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell spoke out against President Donald Trump in an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Sunday, blasting his anti-press rhetoric, retreat from the world stage, and his insults of U.S. allies.

Zakaria asked Powell and his other guest, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, about American foreign policy and whether the country is still leading the rest of the world by example.

Powell, a Republican who has maintained a low profile during the Trump administration, called out “what we are not doing as the United States of America.”

“What are we doing? We’re walking away from agreements, we’re walking away from alliances,” Powell said. He noted that Trump insulted U.S. allies at the NATO summit.

After Powell invoked the violence at Charlottesville, Zakaria asked: “Do you think this president can be a moral leader for the world?”

“I don’t know that he can do that,” Powell said. “Because right now that is not the way he is acting.”

Powell said that his favorite three words in the Constitution are “we the people.” “Recently, it has become ‘me the president’ as opposed to ‘we the people,’” he said.

“And you see things that should not be happening,” Powell continued. “How can a president of the United States get up and say that the media is the enemy of Americans? Hasn’t he read the First Amendment? You are not supposed to like everything the press says, or what anyone says… that’s why we have a First Amendment, to protect that kind of speech.”

“I hope the president can come to the realization that he should really stop insulting people,” Powell said. “I used this two years ago when I said I could not vote for him in the 2016 election. Why? He insulted everybody. He insulted African-Americans. He insulted women. He insulted immigrants. He insulted our best friends around the world. All of his fellow candidates up on the stage during the debates. I don’t think that’s what should be coming out of a president of the United States. But I don’t see anything that’s changed in the last two years.”

Albright added that Trump’s rhetoric about America being a victim is “so not true.”

“The world is watching,” Powell said. “They cannot believe we’re doing things like separating mothers and children who are trying to get across the border from south of our border. They can’t believe we’re making such an effort to cease immigration coming into the country. It’s what’s kept us alive!”

“The world is watching and wondering, why are we pulling away from all the things we helped create?” he said. “I don’t think that’s going to create a better America.”
