“It’s a long list of grievances I have with him as our president, but I think it’s this fundamental lack of a moral compass, I think that will be the biggest lasting damage.”
Delaney accused Trump of driving divisions among Americans.
“For the American people, what he’s done to degrade the standards in our society — the fear-mongering, his notion that your enemy is your fellow American — I think that is so corrosive and so damaging,” he said. “I think he’s a deeply divisive president who fear-mongers, and his approach is not who we are as an American people. It’s not who we are,” he added.
The Democrat also lambasted Trump’s approach to foreign policy, stating that Trump had a “narrow, transactional” view on global affairs.
“He has a very narrow, transactional view of the world,” Delaney said. “He doesn’t value our allies. He doesn’t value the institutions that we’ve worked so hard to build.”
