"Let's get back to my interview about the growing threat of domestic terrorism with Elizabeth Newman. She's worked in Homeland security Ever since 9 11. She's served as assistant secretary of Homeland Security for counterterrorism and threat reduction. The Trump administration. She quit in April 2020 because of her concerns that Trump was actually fueling extremism. When you quit the Trump administration in 2020 and left her job in homeland security. Um what was the turning point for you where you decided you couldn't stay anymore? Was there a specific turning point? You know, it was probably most directly El Paso coming out of that, and you know part of it, and when you're outside, it's very easy to see the evil When you're in the middle of it. You're constantly pushing back against it, And it's so exhausting. You're you're just trying to get through each day. S O. The Paso moment was the moment when he could have said, Oh, my goodness my words into definite terrorist manifesto. If you recall the shooter talked about needing to stop the Hispanic invasion. Those were words straight out of Donald Trump's campaign. They had been used on thousands of Facebook campaign ads just that you're alone and he had spoken them personally. It ends up in a terrorist manifesto, and the proper response is Oh my gosh, That's not what I meant. I never meant for somebody to kill somebody over this. Like I've learned my lesson. You could say it in his own trump the way that he could have said, I've learned my lesson. This is not who we are As a people. We respect one another, and I would have been willing Offer him grace that he genuinely didn't understand that he his words were having this kind of impact. He did not choose to do that. In fact, he followed the normal pattern that he usually does, which is hey, kind of Brushes aside any sort of question associated with Hey, Do you realize your remarks are in a terraced manifesto? He feels attacks he he attacks back. Then he read some script that his staff wrote him. That sounds conciliatory. And then a day or two. Later, he reverts back to his attacking style. I don't know if that's because in his heart he is racist. I think that's something between the only he and God. No. But I do think that he has exhibited that his ego prevents him from acknowledging wrong from acknowledging that he's human and makes mistakes and that is very dangerous for us to have In any form of leadership. So that was probably the moment that I realized he not only is ignoring the problem that Secretary Neilson had raised multiple times to the White House. That my colleagues and I were trying to get the White House to act on that he was actually making the problem. Worse. He was creating the problem for us. He was putting as you have shared pouring fuel on the fire of it. And so that was kind of that really remarkable moment for me of its time for me to leave. It took a while for me to put things in place to Step out, but it was definitely kind of the the shifting point for me that I needed Tomo needed to move out. What about the policy of image immigration on the southern border with Mexico of separating Children from their parents and Children, ending up basically in cages as many of those whose Children have never been reunited with their parents? Because No one can find their parents. And that's in part because No one was really keeping track. There wasn't enough paperwork that was done. I don't know whether that part of policy came under your purview. But, you know, how did you? How did you deal with that aspect? Yeah, Those were dark days. It did not fall under my purview than other people that dealt with immigration issues. When I heard about it, I was sick to my stomach. I Attempted to, uh, try toe the best I could. Are you why this was the wrong approach. It was kind of explained to me that we idea just had not actually made the decision that it was a decision made at DOJ and we were kind of caught flatfooted because we didn't know the decision was coming down and everybody was scrambling. Tonto to try to figure out how to handle it. I do know that you had a career in political officials under tremendous pressure to get immigration numbers down, and some of the career officials really felt like the only way to get the numbers down was to do something drastic as a deterrence measure. And they that's how they get to the place where they think family separation. Would would send that signal. Um, I was very grateful that the strong outpouring of anger by the American public Kind of force the president to change tracks on that pretty quickly If it was, it is a stain on our country, and it's going to be with us for some time. So you know, we've talked about domestic terrorism. You served in homeland security in the George W. Bush administration and in the Trump administration. You're no longer in government. You've been. You've been writing you bit speaking out against Republicans who support To stop the steel point of view of, but What do you see for yourself in the future? Ah, that's a great question. Um, a year ago. This is not what I thought I'd be doing. Uh, I certainly have enjoyed spending more time with my kids on getting involved in our local community. And I hope I get to continue todos things. Um, I I don't I don't know what the future holds. I I know that I feel called to try to persuade the community from which I came. The Christian community, the conservative community. Um, that that there there is, Um there is a path that is not governed by fear. But there is a path where we can lead with principles and with love that still embraces some of the things that you think that you hold dear, have been co opted by, um People like Trump and and others around him for their own purposes for power on for evil s O right now, I know that I'm searching for how to best communicate and encourage That change. There's opportunity and and maybe responsibility to try to encourage evangelicals that our faith is so much bigger than any Problem that you perceive in this moment on def we follow what What Jesus taught us it is much more about loving one another, serving one another, as opposed to being obsessed with Having power and getting things your own way. Elizabeth Newman, I want to thank you so much for talking with us. Thank you so much for having me, Terry. Elizabeth Newman served as assistant secretary of Homeland Security for counterterrorism and threat reduction in the Trump administration. She quit last April and is now the co director of the Republican Accountability Project, which is pushing back on political conspiracy theories and trying to hold accountable elected leaders who've supported those theories. This is fresh air..

"In organizing activity in online. Um, comments like how could you tell the impact that that was having what impact do you think it had? On the inside when we were when I was at DHS, we we were not able to track that type of information. Several reasons for that. But what is interesting, though, is over time You've had a number of researchers, news organizations. Dig into, you know, Is there a cause and effect here and since being out of government have had more time to read some of those studies on, But it is quite remarkable. It is not even just a political assertion or commentary to been so reach. Search that I feel very confident, saying There is a direct connection between the words that he uses in the hate crime that we see shortly thereafter. Number of studies have been done about done on this, but one in particular that I recall. They studied when he would tweet or give a speech in an area and he would talk about Muslims, usually in a derogatory way they were able to hold for like what the normal amount of hate crime or activity in a particular area would be and show. The spike when the president had tweeted or when he might be in the area, giving a rally type speech. They could show the increase in the hate crime or the increase in the hate filled language on social media. There was another news organization that looked through court records during the Trump presidency and found on this was only 2.5 years into his presidency. They found over 50 cases of individuals being prosecuted for hate crimes. It cited the president as the reason why they felt that they were justified in doing whatever they did. It's clear from what you're saying that you think when Trump was president, he activated A lot of hatred. He activated a lot of people to take action on their hatred. Either weather was a death threat or storming the Capitol and Also, I think you've pointed out that although Trump can turn this on, there's no indication he can turn it off. And so what are the implications of that for our future? I think he said that so well. He's activated something that existed before he was here. We have to recognize that it was created through political and cultural means, and we need politics and culture to help fix it. We need elected officials, especially on the Republican side. Those who maybe even participated initially and supporting Donald Trump in the arguments that the election was stolen. We need people like that to come out and say the election wasn't stolen. You do that, and it shrinks a sizable portion of people. We have to be concerned about. That does not take care of the violent extremists out there. And it doesn't take care of, you know other ideologies that might not have been so tied to Trump. But right now you have this confluence of Violent extremist organizations that you know have been emboldened by him. New groups that have kind of sprung up around him like the proud boys on Ben this big why that many in the country believe is true. It's just too much, eh? So we need to shrink the pool of vulnerable individuals that might mobilize to violence. And that's part of the reason why I joined the Republican Accountability Project because this is inherently Being fueled by politics. Let me reintroduce you here. If you're just joining us, My guest is Elizabeth Newman, and she served as assistant secretary of Homeland Security for counterterrorism and third reduction. In the Trump administration. She quit in April 2020 because of her concerns that Trump was fueling extremism instead of fighting it. We'll be right back after a short break. This is fresh air. Support for NPR comes.

But 24 days from now, Donald Trump will no longer be president his final days in office or shaping up to be the most volatile and unpredictable of a presidency defined by its volatility and unpredictability. This morning, millions of Americans are waking up to a grim reality as much needed unemployment benefits lapsed overnight. The $900 billion covert relief bill, including $600 in direct payments, and much more is in limbo, awaiting Trump's signature, while many families were forced to choose between putting food on the table Paying rent all of this unfolding during the deadliest month yet of the covert 19 pandemic. We will cover it all this morning. But we begin with that breaking news out of Nashville, where an explosion ripped through downtown on Christmas morning more than 250 FBI personnel are on the scene. Law enforcement receiving nearly 500 tips so far. Authorities focusing on specific properties as they search for answers. ABC is Marcus Moore joins us now from Nashville. John Good morning. There are so many unanswered questions of surrounding this bizarre case and a federal agents were at several locations on Saturday, including a home in suburban Nashville. They were searching for clues there in law enforcement sources tell ABC News that the home One of them is connected to an Anthony Warner authorities are working to determine whether he was connected to the R V that blew up or if he was in the RV at the time of the explosion. Now. Google maps search of the home pulls up a picture of an RV that is similar to the one in Friday morning's blast. Another detail ABC News has learned through court records. Is that one or signed the D for his home over to a woman in California just last month Now how all of that is connected to this investigation is unclear. Of course, All of this started with a shots fired call Early Friday morning, Police in the area came across the RV, where they began hearing a recorded announcement coming from inside. Warning of an explosion. Police began evacuating the area and then that RV blew up. Three people suffered minor injuries and officials later discovered human remains at the site and now one working theory that investigators are pursuing. Is whether this was an elaborate suicide now several blocks of downtown or closed right now, investigators have been searching for clues at the ground level as well as on rooftops here in downtown Nashville. Law enforcement sources tell us that blast residue samples will be sent to a lab to see what chemicals may have been used in the explosive. The van that blew up on Friday morning was parked outside in a TNT transmission building. Because authorities cannot rule out that it was the intended target. Ah, bulletin has gone out to law enforcement agencies across the country, urging them to increase patrols at similar facilities. So John, There is a lot left to learn here. In Nashville. Markets more Thank you for more. Let's bring in Elizabeth Newman, who, until she resigned in April was the assistant secretary for counterterrorism and threat prevention at the Department of Homeland Security. Elizabeth Let me ask you we saw one of the theories that investigators are looking at here is the possibility that this was some kind of an elaborate suicide. If it was a suicide, doesn't it also seem to be intended to send a message. Yes, And clearly this is not a mass casualty event. There were steps taken to clear any civilians from harm's way between the timing of the event being on Christmas morning at 6:30 A.m.. To the seemingly one hour period of time were warnings were issued on the loudspeaker telling people to evacuate. They weren't trying to do a normal what we normally expect with the bombing of like this, that this was not a mass casualty event, so The suicide theory is interesting. But why this location and why Next See a TNT building, which is a well known critical piece of infrastructure. And as we have seen in the consequences of it, it's it's cut out a lot of communications for the last 48 hours, so it does. I'm interested in seeing what the investigation unfurls. There's I'm sure what's that We do not understand, but Clearly seems to be designed to send a message and it's interesting you point out it's right by the 18 T building. It knocked out cell phone communications from much of Tennessee and you had those audible warnings telling people to back off T get away because of bomb was about to go off. Um, what do you make of those two pieces of information? You know it. It's It reminds me that we have been concerned about the vulnerability of our critical infrastructure in this country. Really, since 9 11. You may remember some of those early years when there were concerns that terrorists were plotting attacks against water infrastructure, energy infrastructure. And then in 2003. We had that massive blackout in New York City, and initially everybody thought it was a terrorist attack on we haven't really been talking about infrastructure in this country in the context of Individuals trying tol duct attacks of harm against it, But it just is a stark reminder that it is extremely vulnerable and we're overdue for some pretty significant investments. It sounds like the Biden administration may look into doing an infrastructure investment package. And if they do, I really hope that security and resilience is built into any future investments and infrastructure because we're just so vulnerable right now and there, and there is little doubt that this could have been much worse, much deadlier. If this had been in a crowded time this bomb went off or if it weren't for those six police officers and went in there went right to the to the heart of the location into the line of danger. On warned people to get out to get away from that from that RV bomb. Thank you very much. Elizabeth Newman. It will be right back after this from our ABC stations have bodies. Furniture is here to help you get your home all set for the new year so you can set the stage with more style, set the bar more beautifully and set a more show stopping table. Let's set some.

All of this started with a shots fired call Early Friday morning, Police in the area came across the RV, where they began hearing a recorded announcement coming from inside. Warning of an explosion. Police began evacuated the area and then that RV blew up. Three people suffered minor injuries and officials later discovered human remains at the site and now one working theory that investigators are pursuing. Is whether this was an elaborate suicide. Now, several blocks of downtown are closed right now. Investigators have been searching for clues at the ground level as well as on rooftops here in downtown Nashville, and law enforcement sources tell us that blast residue samples Will be sent to a lab to see what chemicals may have been used in the explosive. The van that blew up on Friday morning was parked outside in a TNT transmission building. Because authorities cannot rule out that it was the intended target. Ah, bulletin has gone out to law enforcement agencies across the country, urging them to increase patrols at similar facilities. So John, There is a lot left to learn here. In Nashville. Markets more Thank you for more. Let's bring in Elizabeth Newman, who, until she resigned in April was the assistant secretary for counterterrorism and threat prevention at the Department of Homeland Security. Elizabeth Let me ask you we saw one of the theories that investigators are looking at here is the possibility that this was some kind of an elaborate suicide. But if it was a suicide, doesn't it also seem to be intended to send a message. Yes, And clearly this is not a mass casualty event. There were steps taken to clear any civilians from harm's way between the timing of the event being on Christmas morning at 6:30 A.m.. To the seemingly one hour period of time were warnings were issued on the loudspeaker telling people to evacuate. They weren't trying to do a normal what we normally expect with the bombing of like this, that this was not a mass casualty event, so The suicide theory is interesting. But why this location and why Next See a TNT building, which is a well known critical piece of infrastructure. And as we have seen in the consequences of it, it's it's cut out a lot of communications for the last 48 hours, so it does. I'm interested in seeing what the investigation unfurls. There's I'm sure what's that We do not understand, but Clearly seems to be designed to send a message and it's interesting you point out. It's right by the 18 T building. It knocked out cell phone communications from much of Tennessee and you had those audible warnings telling people to back off T get away because a bomb was about to go off. Um, what do you make of those two pieces of information? You know it. It's It reminds me that we have been concerned about the vulnerability of our critical infrastructure in this country. Really, since 9 11. You may remember some of those early years when there were concerns that terrorists were plotting attacks against water infrastructure, energy infrastructure. And then in 2003. We had that massive blackout in New York City, and initially everybody thought it was a terrorist attack on we haven't really been talking about infrastructure in this country in the context of Individuals trying to conduct attacks of harm against it. But it just is a stark reminder that it is extremely vulnerable and we're overdue for some pretty significant investments. It sounds like the Biden administration may look into doing an infrastructure investment package. And if they do, I really hope that security and resilience is built into any future investments and infrastructure because we're just so vulnerable right now, and there's little doubt that this could have been much worse, much deadlier. If this had been in a crowded time this bomb went off or if it weren't for those six police officers and went in there went right to the to the heart of the location into the line of danger on warned people to get out. To get away from that from that RV bomb. Thank you very much. Elizabeth Newman. It will be right back after this from our ABC stations. Hey, Mom, I'm here to drive you to your doctor's appointment. Oh, we finished.

But 24 days from now, Donald Trump will no longer be president his final days in office or shaping up to be the most volatile and unpredictable of a presidency defined by its volatility and unpredictability. This morning, millions of Americans are waking up to a grim reality as much needed unemployment benefits lapsed overnight. The $900 billion covert relief bill, including $600 in direct payments, and much more is in limbo, awaiting Trump's signature, while many families were forced to choose between putting food on the table Paying rent all of this unfolding during the deadliest month yet of the covert 19 pandemic. We will cover it all this morning, but we begin with that breaking news out of Nashville, where an explosion ripped through downtown on Christmas morning more than 250 FBI personnel are on the scene. Long force mint receiving nearly 500 tips so far. Authorities focusing on specific properties as they search for answers. ABC is Marcus Moore joins us now from Nashville. John Good morning. There are so many unanswered questions of surrounding this bizarre case, and, uh, Federal agents were at several locations on Saturday, including the home in suburban Nashville. They were searching for clues there in law enforcement sources tell ABC News that the home One of them is connected to an Anthony Warner authorities are working to determine whether he was connected to the R V that blew up or if he was in the RV at the time of the explosion. Now. Google maps search of the home pulls up a picture of an RV that is similar to the one in Friday morning's blast. Another detail ABC News has learned through court records. Is that one or sign the D for his home over to a woman in California? Just last month Now how all of that is connected to this investigation is unclear.

"A little more about the first and what might be the last presidential debate in just a minute. Right now. We want to focus on just one aspect of it to a lot of people. The most shocking moment came when President Trump was asked to denounce white supremacy. What do you want to call him? Give me a name. Give me a problem, right, like process and write problem Stand back and stand by the proud boys. ABC is Lindsay Davis has more on the group The president was talking about in that exchange who they are where they came from, and what they stand for. There is growing concern over white supremacy in this country. After that stunning moment at the first presidential debate, the president failing to denounce white supremacists and right wing militias in front of 73 million viewers. That moment, certainly caught the attention of the proud boys founder who was podcasting. The debate live. Now that far right group is under the microscope. 2020 proud boys, who described themselves as a Western show Venice Group is a growing presence at rallies, some armed with guns. The group is also appeared alongside other extremist groups of gatherings like the deadly 2017 unite the right rally in Charlottesville. Their leaders say they are not white supremacists. But according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the group is known for misogynistic and anti Muslim rhetoric and has made allies of white supremacists and attract some openly racist and violent people. The Southern Poverty Law Center says it in 2019. They counted 44 different, proud boys chapters across the country and that they were kicked off of Facebook in late 2018 because of their history of violence. Frank Minka, former white supremacist now anti racism activist, says the kind of recognition problem has gone from the president on Ly emboldens them and indulgence. Your leadership there, Ricky doing what they're doing, and with the election approaching, there are fears that the proud boys another far right groups will mobilize. Elizabeth Newman, a former assistant, D HS, secretary in charge of counter terrorism, who resigned in April, says that the president's words air creating conditions for domestic extremism. To flourish. You had people inside the government building the White House to take this issue up and they were silenced. I've come to the conclusion. That's because he didn't want to do anything about white nationalist. Lindsey.

"The right side of the spectrum it is not Antifa a there is left wing extremism there is anti-fascism, but they historically have not killed as many people. Newman's last day of work in the trump administration was April tenth earlier this year. She been thinking about quitting since last fall. Here's about to start her third year as an assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland, security. And she told her husband it would only be two. She says the decision came to her after she was asked if she would vote for trump again like she did in two thousand, sixteen somebody asked me the question and I just realized I I can't vote for him. So made made the plans. It takes a while to ensure an orderly transition, and now that she is no longer part of the administration Elizabeth Newman is talking about her experience. And she's in a new ad for a group called Republican voters against trump arguing that president trump's own words actually encouraged far right groups things like they're good people on both sides or send them back where they came from those words gave permission to white supremacists to think that what they were doing was permissible newman talk to NPR's Steve Inskeep this week about what it was like to work in the trump administration and why in her opinion the president's language could lead to even more violence. Clearly we have problems within policing and we need to address those but instead, we're just issuing soundbites and accusations on. You know it's the Democrat run cities that are having these problems or it is the fault of the Mayor of Portland or the governor of Oregon for not being able to handle the protests that have been happening for the last three months and I just think that's an oversimplification and by oversimplifying it sends messages to the right. Side of the political spectrum that they have to defend themselves that rioting and looting and violence may come to their streets and they need to defend themselves, and then you end up with an opportunity for individuals what appears to be the situation with Calverton House. To take matters into their own hands and it's just it's so sad to watch and it could be somewhat preventable I. think there would still be unrest and still be some violence but if the president would not keep heaping fuel on the fire, some of the unrest, some of the death that we have seen would not be happening how many people served under you when you were Assistant Secretary. At towards the end, we were up to about seventy. We started with about thirty..

Newman. WORKED ON COUNTERTERRORISM THREAT PREVENTION AT the Department of Homeland Security. In this conference was in Spain. And the purpose was to talk about our our progress in defeating Isis and how we were going hindle returning foreign terrorist fighters. So as you can hear, the conference was supposed to be about defeating Isis. Which is why I'm. Elizabeth. Newman. Heard what her counterparts from other countries were talking about. Two. surprised. As we're doing introductions, everybody goes around eighty countries are represented here. You're going around the table. Tell us what your top three issues are. Challenges. Threats are within your country and I was stunned eighty percent said some form of racially and ethnically motivated violent extremism. They often talk about it in terms of right wing extremism in other countries and very few people were talking about. Isis, this is. In March of twenty one, thousand, nine, hundred. And the very next day Christ church happened. Gunman reportedly dressed in tactical view opened fire on a mosque, two different shooting locations both believed to be at mosques being more than ninety minutes now, since the first reported shootings and yet there are still ambulances pulling out with a steady stream of victims. Shooter Killed Fifty One people at two mosques in. Christchurch Church New Zealand. It was it was heartbreaking because the community was realizing this is a. Threat, what do we do about it and the very next day we have that tragic event in Christchurch. We all know wasn't just Christ church. The. El Paso's shooting happened later that year, the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting came before that. And White supremacists marched in. CHARLOTTESVILLE before that. All this violence or visit rhetoric people inside our own country. People motivated by racial and ethnic hatred. Made Elizabeth Newman. Start to realize if this had come from a group like Isis. The president of the United States would have talked about it but because it's coming from inside our country and it's on this, you know the political spectrum side of. The president's base. He is not talking about it. Coming up the events in Kenosha Wisconsin. This past week fit a larger pattern of the president, not just ignoring the threat of violence from the right.

"Start. One of the things I noticed a Facebook, and I don't think this had anything to do with power outage. I put the picture of the pope up and I don't know where he is. Let me look, take a look at this. He's. Say where he is doesn't zoo. He's in some kind of a confab with it looks like African Muslim leaders. There may maybe a Christian one in there. But anyway, he's done kissing feet. He's on his hands and easy's kissing somebody's feet. I think he's trying to. I don't know what he's trying to do is you try is this is this some type of biblical reference to Jesus washing? People's feeder, I don't know. But anyway, it's, it's, it's straight up disgusting and a sham. And so I posted of be deleted this picture Facebook in previous posts. I guess they didn't like the pope attending the M party, a block or two down from the Vatican has shown here. So we'll see if they delete this to anyone that was up there yesterday. They took it down, and they always give an excuse. This was taken down because somebody who owns it had rights to Bob. Well I went and found it easily. You can find it easy over to Google and just search pope kissing feet there is now below that I posted and culture, I'm not going to get deep into this one, but this is a good read and culture is making the case, you know, people say, we're becoming Europe, euro, socialism, I've said that, she says, no, we're becoming Rome, maybe coming Rome, and the case, she's making it it's, it's damn straight accurate. Roman everything in this day, plumbing art philosophy. The whole nine yards carpentry. They know what they're doing and in, in very little time, because they let all kinds of third world IRS in it was gone. And it took century to get to get more than that, to get things back to where there was some type of a western civilization, if you will, and she's making the case that the culture of the more or less took place, here that we're losing in America is eurocentric, white based, that's being vilified now it's being vilified and they're trying to destroy it. You've heard this your kids, probably hitching the face with it about how white people are the root of all evil. I mean, they meant said literally, but that's what they're saying, and she's making the case that that's what's happening right now. That's what happened in Rome. Now, I don't think they had to deal with anything like Roman privilege back then. But this is what's happening right now in America. Pretty scary stuff. It makes a good good point. I did not want to get into that today. But here's here's us piece of it right here. This is our department of homeland security, you know, at one point, we elected Donald Trump, and he was telling us that he was going to build a wall, stop the flow of illegal aliens into the US stuff the flow of drugs into the US, and the southern border. And we know that he wants to do that personally. But the people that work in the federal government, don't seem to have any take any part of it take just they're almost working against him, proactively. And lo and behold, they are here's more evidence. Kevin mckell lean does his name, alanon or something, or whatever he's, he's the acting director department of homeland security. Made few changes to the policies. Set by former he's has made few rather, the same very, very few set forth by Kristen Nelson. She was the one that just got somewhat fired resigned fired whatever sources close to bright. Burnt news who spoke on the condition of anonymity. In other words, don't don't, don't tell anybody. We said this will get fired. We've got government jobs. They say department of homeland security management teams of deliberately sidetrack deliberately sidetracked stalled and stop policy. Sup by President Donald Trump. How does this? How does this happen, Rex Tillerson, secretary of state, we heard the same thing that not just him, but the, the people under him were doing nothing of getting in the way of any policy that would move forward from the Hussein Obama infestation into the downtown presidency? What's happening right now? Those policies which were promised by two thousand sixteen presidential campaign were intended to end illegal immigration, build a wall on the US Mexico border, empower the immigration and customs enforcement agency to deport illegal aliens living in the country. Now, by the way. Ice. This is part of the America becoming Rome. They're stepping down the what would you call it? The centurions Pretoria guy wherever it would be, and you hear that they're still on that. Actually bragging. Now the Democrats take over the White House. That's it is, is gone. Nelson led the department of homeland security between December two thousand seventeen April two thousand nineteen news term to post like-minded allies and keep physicians with approve of White House personnel. Staff. Sources said many job candidates who supported Trump policies were black even before the interview state. What how do you know about? I don't know about this. I'm sharing this would for the first time I must stick this up on Facebook. I've done that yet but this is insane. How does this happen? We the thinking send the president to DC and every single step of the way somebody blocks what we want done. I'm in Paul Ryan's. The most visible nail that sticking up that needed to be pounded down. He he's, he's the at the head of the class. He's gonna get honors. He's an honor a block President Trump student so under this assistant. The new cat in town here. What's his name, Kevin Vic, alanon or something anyway. Under him. You don't see an influx of those pro-trump types, either. This is who macallan is bringing him with them. All career federal employees, Washington. Beltway people why, and why is somebody in the White House, not saying this is happening. Get to the bottom of this, who's in charge of this. We don't want the swamp but there's this lineup getting gigs.
