Former Sec'y of State Albright Rips Trump: 'He Acts Like He's Above the Law'
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said Wednesday that she is concerned President Trump acts as though he is "above the law."
Albright, who served under Bill Clinton, commented in her new book, "Fascism: A Warning," that Trump is seemingly the least democratic commander-in-chief she has seen.
She said on "The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino" that Trump seems to lack respect for traditional democracy, particularly the First Amendment.
"I am a great believer in Freedom of the Press. I think it's very important. I think it's exceptionally important for there to be discussions -- civil, good discussions," she said.
She said of potential retaliation in Syria after the use of chemical weapons that there needs to be "some" response.
"It can't just be a one-off," she said. "I think there really has to be some kind of a strategic approach to it and a plan, and I am worried about it."
Saturday's attack unfolded amid a resumed offensive by the Syrian government. The Assad regime has denied responsibility, but many believe it is behind the deadly strike.
Albright added that she doesn't like "foreign policy by tweets," referring to the president's tweets Wednesday regarding firing missiles to Syria.
Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!
