Ana Navarro: Trump Thinks America Is a ‘Dictatorship’ and that ‘He Is an Autocrat’
NAVARRO: "You know, as I listen to this, and as I put it in context of everything that’s going on with Saudi Arabia, with the prosecution of Comey and Clinton, with Donald Trump dancing on the graves of Republicans who lost because they dared confront him or rebuke him at one point or another, he seems not to understand the basic makeup of America. Of this constitutional democracy. That is made great because of checks and balances. Because there are three separate, independent chambers of government that are supposed to check and balance each other. He thinks this is a dictatorship. He thinks he is an autocrat. And if you are not loyal to him, then you are not performing your job adequately. And also reminds me of when he tried to question a judge’s ability to do his job impartially, the Judge Curiel in the case that ruled against Trump by calling him a Mexican. Look, he will criticize and attack and undermine anything that does not go along with what his agenda is, with what is best for Donald Trump, with what he wants that does not kiss his ring among other body parts, whether it means attacking Republicans in Congress, whether it means attacking political opponents, whether it means attacking the judiciary. And this is where Republicans have got to step up and defend the basic tenets of democracy in America."
