George Conway: ‘Trump Is All About Trump’

‘This is about putting the country, the law, truth above partisanship’


CONWAY: “I mean, there are two ways to look at it. The first, the way I prefer to look at it, is the holistic view. And the holistic view is that when you become president, you raise your right hand and you swear to faithfully execute the office of president of the United States, and also the Constitution provides and uses that word -- those words 'faithfully execute,' in reference to faithfully execute the laws. And when you take on that duty — and the framers really took oath seriously — you are promising to take that awesome power that’s being thrust upon you and use it for the nation’s benefit and not for your own benefit. And the problem with Donald Trump is, he always sees himself first. Trump is all about Trump. And that’s why it was inevitable he’d get himself into this suit once again. And that’s what -- that's what this is all about. He’s using — he was using the power of the presidency, its most unchecked area, foreign affairs, to advance his own personal interests as opposed to the country’s."
