Trump Looses It After Being Told He Can’t Break The Law, Fires Top Official
President Donald Trump flew into a rage when he was told he couldn’t do something because it was illegal and that led to Secretary Kirstjen Nielson’s firing, the New York Times reported Sunday night.
“The president berated Ms. Nielsen regularly, calling her at home early in the mornings to demand that she take action to stop migrants from entering the country, including doing things that were clearly illegal, like blocking all migrants from seeking asylum,” the Times wrote. “She repeatedly noted the limitations imposed on her department by federal laws, court settlements and international obligations.
“Those responses only infuriated Mr. Trump further. The president’s fury erupted in the spring of 2018 as Ms. Nielsen hesitated for weeks about whether to sign a memo ordering the routine separation of migrant children from their families so that the parents could be detained.”
A CNN report revealed on Sunday that Trump became “increasingly unhinged” when it came to Nielsen, leading to her abrupt departure.
