White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney gave us two real doozies on two Sunday talk shows. Here he is on the CBS News’ Face The Nation:
“I don’t think anybody could say that the president is anti-Muslim.” – Mick Mulvaney on CBS
Remember during the campaign when Trump proposed to ban all Muslims from entering the United States? Trump also said “Islam hates us.”
Then on Fox New Sunday with Chris Wallace, Mulvaney was asked why Donald Trump hasn’t spoken out condemning Muslim bigotry.
“The president is not a white supremacist. I’m not sure how many times we have to say that.” – Mick Mulvaney on Fox News
If you have to answer that question a lot, perhaps it is an issue.
