(TargetLiberty.org) – Mick Mulvaney, the former White House Chief of Staff, expressed disapproval over a contentious Truth Social post made by former President Donald Trump, particularly noting its timing during the Christmas season.
Speaking on “The Hill on NewsNation” on Tuesday, Mulvaney described Trump’s Christmas Day message as inappropriate. He suggested that those already critical of Trump’s approach would likely be further alienated by such remarks.
In his post, Trump harshly criticized his opponents, accusing them of attempting to undermine the United States. He included derogatory comments about Joe Biden and Jack Smith, the special counsel, whom he referred to as “Deranged” and a “Lunatic.” Trump also mentioned Smith’s recent hiring of external attorneys, which he labeled as unprecedented and part of a “witch hunt” against him and his political movement.
Trump’s post went on to broadly denounce the policies and beliefs of the Biden administration and its supporters. He concluded the post with a harsh wish for them to “rot in hell,” juxtaposed with a repeat of his holiday greeting.
This post followed a recent ruling by the Colorado Supreme Court, which removed Trump from the state’s Republican primary ballot under the 14th Amendment’s insurrection clause. The court determined that Trump had incited an insurrection by spreading false claims of election fraud and encouraging his supporters to storm the Capitol. The insurrection clause disqualifies individuals from holding U.S. office if they have participated in insurrection or rebellion against the country.
Reacting to the Colorado court’s decision, Trump expressed dismay, deeming it a disgrace for the country in another of his posts.
