“Retired Adm. William McRaven stood by his previous statement that President Trump’s attacks on the news media represent ‘the greatest threat to democracy’ after the President dismissed him as a ‘Hillary Clinton backer’ in an interview that aired on Fox News,” CNN reports.
Said McRaven: “I did not back Hillary Clinton or anyone else. I am a fan of President Obama and President George W. Bush, both of whom I worked for. I admire all presidents, regardless of their political party, who uphold the dignity of the office and who use that office to bring the nation together in challenging times.”
He added: “I stand by my comment that the President’s attack on the media is the greatest threat to our democracy in my lifetime.”Save to Favorites
