GOP Lawmaker Calls Out Trump For Firing WH Officials Through Twitter – Watch:
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) called out Donald Trump on Saturday for using Twitter as a platform to fire top White House officials.
During an interview with “Meet the Press,” which is set to air on Sunday, Johnson said that taking to social media to fire cabinet members is not presidential and he personally would not do it.
“It’s not the way I’d do it,” Johnson said. “I think the president does need to understand the effect it has on attracting other people.”
Earlier this week Trump fired David Shulkin and announced via Twitter that White House physician Ronny Jackson would replace him as his Veterans Affairs secretary.
This wasn’t the first time he took to Twitter to fire a White House official. Earlier this month he fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on the social media site.
Just nine days after firing Tillerson, Trump took to Twitter again to announce that he had chosen former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton to replace H.R. McMaster as his national security adviser.
