President Trump unloaded on the nation’s governors on a phone call and called on them to step up law enforcement: “You have to dominate, if you don’t dominate you’re wasting your time. They’re going to run over you, you’re going to look like a bunch of jerks. You have to dominate,” CBS News reports.
He added: “Washington was under very good control, but we’re going to have it under much more control. We’re going to pull in thousands of people. You’ve got to arrest people, you have to track people, you have to put them in jail for 10 years and you’ll never see this stuff again.”
The Washington Post says one person listening in on the call described the president’s words and tone as “unhinged.”Save to Favorites
