‘This is Mussolini’: U.S. Army Gen. Barry McCaffrey Unloads On Donald Trump Over Attacks On NYT And WaPo

On Friday, retired four-star U.S. Army Gen. Barry McCaffrey lambasted President Donald Trump after the White House directed federal agencies to end their subscriptions to The New York Times and The Washington Post per Trump request.

“The White House Trump statement telling the entire Federal Government to terminate subscriptions to the NYT and Wash Post is a watershed moment in national history,” McCaffrey tweeted. “No room for HUMOROUS media coverage. This is deadly serious. This is Mussolini.”

The White House said Tuesday that it would cancel subscriptions to both outlets less than a day after Trump told Fox News’s Sean Hannity that “we don’t even want it in the White House anymore” while referring to the Times.

“We’re going to probably terminate that and The Washington Post. They’re fake,” he said.

McCaffrey also took a jab at Trump on Sunday for attacking former Defense Secretary James Mattis as “the world’s most overrated general.”

“At the end of the day what we’re seeing is a total breakdown in the national security process,” he said.
