Ben Cotton: Trump is an ’embarrassment’ for America
Ben Cotton, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, said on Sunday that President Donald Trump is a “embarrassing embarrassment” for America, and he thinks the President should resign.
“We’re going to see a lot of bad things that will happen, and this President is a great example of how it’s going to be, and I think he should resign,” Cotton told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.
“He is an embarrassment to America.”
Cotton was one of the most vocal critics of Trump’s first year in office, calling for him to resign over his refusal to immediately release his tax returns and his lack of transparency about his financial holdings.
He also pushed for a special prosecutor to investigate the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.
During the interview, Cotton said that the Trump administration has “lost sight of” its core mission and that “they’re not getting the job done.”
“I don’t think the president is doing anything wrong.
I don’t want to see anything in the public sphere that he’s not going to do his job, he is going to follow the law, and the law is that there’s no special prosecutor,” Cotton said.
“I think they’re going in the wrong direction, and they are going in a direction where there’s going be a lot more corruption in Washington.”
I think the administration is a very disappointing president,” he added.
