An advisor to President Donald Trump says the impeachment fight was difficult on the President but he is eyeing Election Day and relishing the fight.
“He is a born warrior, a born fighter,” Dr. Robert Jeffress says of the President. “And I think that's why he's been so successful in the Washington arena.”
As the Democratic candidates witness Joe Biden sink and Sen. Bernie Sanders rise in their primaries, Trump is watching from a distance and mocking them all. Last week, he called out “Mini-Mike” Bloomberg after last week’s Las Vegas debate.
"Bloomberg made a fool of himself. He choked!" Trump told a cheering audience in Colorado.
During the free-wheeling campaign stop in Colorado Springs, the President mocked the other candidates and complained about the media, including unfavorable coverage on Fox News, too.
The stop was part of a three-night tour in Western states that finished in Nevada just before the Democratic caucuses.
Dr. Jeffress, who has been by Trump’s side since 2016, tells OneNewsNow that the President is “under no illusion” that his political enemies will ever stop their attacks against him.
“He's aware of that,” Jeffress advises. “But I think it's only going to add to the margin of loss for the Democrats if they continue to do this.”
The Hill reported last week that President Trump is fighting back against the “Deep State” through Richard Grenell, the new acting director of national intelligence, who is firing numerous officials and hiring new ones as Trump eyes a second term.
The same story reported one new hire is Kashyap Patel, a senior member of the National Security Council, who was told to “clean house” on behalf of President Trump.
Early on in his term, Trump was advised by ousted National Security Council members that numerous surviving members oppose his leadership, and media outlets reported in recent weeks that approximately 70 Obama-era holdovers - who got rid of the Trump loyalists - have been fired.
Jeffress says Washington, DC, is still in disbelief at how President Trump fights back.
“People say, We've never had a president that's done stuff like this before. This is unprecedented,” Jeffress says. “People don't realize, to him that's a badge of honor. He prides himself on being unprecedented.”
