Video: Colin Powell Just Broke His Silence On Trump – It’s Bad Folks

Wow…

Why Colin Powell? Why?

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell made an appearance on Fareed Zakaria on Sunday and ripped President Trump for just about everything.

When asked about Trump being a moral leader, Powell said Trump was incapable of it.

[…] 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.”
