Trump Called 'Worst President In Modern History'

A Democratic congressman commemorated President Trump’s first anniversary in office this week by slamming him on Twitter.

“One year ago, @realDonaldTrump was elected president,” Rep. Adam Schiff of California wrote. “Since then, he has repeatedly shown why he is the worst president in modern history.” Fox News noted that the lawmaker is the top-ranking Democratic on the House Intelligence Committee, which is investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election.

The congressman pointed out that “almost immediately after the election, the president-elect falsely claimed to have won the popular vote and said that millions of illegal immigrants voted.” That message was followed by numerous tweets blasting Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric and controversial policies. Schiff criticized the executive orders to ban immigrants from Muslim-majority nations, as well as the president’s withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement and his threat to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration program.

Trump has been “cozying up to dictators,” Schiff alleged, apparently referring to the president’s frequent praise of totalitarian leaders like Russia’s Vladimir Putin. He warned that Trump is risking major military conflicts by threatening North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and others. “There is absolutely no doubt: President Trump is the worst president in modern history. And each day, he works on eliminating ‘modern’ from that description,” the liberal lawmaker wrote.

According to The Hill, Schiff also took Trump to task for his efforts to destroy Obamacare and his ongoing war of words with the news media. He cited the president’s statement that “many sides” were responsible for the violence at an August white-supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. “There were not ‘many sides,’ just right and wrong,” the congressman declared. Trump claimed that some “very fine people” were among those who chanted racist slogans and protested the removal of a statue honoring Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a city park.

In subsequent tweets, Schiff wrote: “Trump has repeatedly tried to intervene in our justice system, and denigrated judges who rule against him as illegitimate or ‘so-called’ judges. … Trump refuses to acknowledge Russia’s attack on our democracy, and fired FBI Director James Comey because of ‘this Russia thing.’”

In July, The Hill reported that the president had lashed out at the California Democrat. “Sleazy Adam Schiff, the totally biased Congressman looking into ‘Russia,’ spends all of his time on television pushing the Dem loss excuse!” Trump tweeted. He was reacting to Schiff’s comment on CBS’ “Face the Nation” the previous day that “the president is clearly worried” about the election-meddling investigation because it might include scrutiny of his businesses. The president said Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller would be committing “a violation” if he decided to look into the Trump Organization’s finances.

The White House continues to describe the Russian probe as a “witch hunt” and “fake news,” pushed by Democrats upset that Hillary Clinton lost the election. A grand jury that Mueller empaneled recently filed charges against Paul Manafort, who resigned as Trump campaign manager in August 2016, and two other former campaign officials. The special counsel suggested that additional indictments are likely.
