Colin Powell explains why Trump shouldn't be re-elected 1


Former Republican Secretary of State Colin Powell said Sunday that President Donald Trump has "drifted away" from the Constitution, adding to a growing list of former top military officials who have strongly criticized the President's response to the nationwide protests surrounding the police killing of George Floyd.

"We have a Constitution. And we have to follow that Constitution. And the President has drifted away from it," Powell, a retired general who served under President George W. Bush, told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union."
The comments from Powell, the first African American secretary of state and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, add to a growing list of rebukes made in recent days by former top officials who have expressed discontent with Trump's strongman approach to the protests sparked by the death of Floyd, a black man who was killed in late May by a white police officer in Minneapolis.

      @Heimskur Hungog Trump was riding the Obama’s economic streak. Go and see for yourself when the job market actually picked up.
      All Trump did was dismantling what Obama did and here we are.
      Pandemic? Obama set up an office exactly to face pandemics and the orange supreme leader dismantled it. But of course it takes intellectual honesty to admit you guys are supporting an incompetent wannabe dictator. Magas are the new nazi. They couldn’t see it either.

    • Please, liberals fashion themselves educated but all they do is parrot the talking points that CNN and company tells them. I’m glad I left the liberal cult. You guys chant things like fascism then when you get asked to define it or when you have policies your side pushes that are authoritarian and someone points it out to you and breaks it down for you you just start screaming racist and nazi when you realize you have no counterpoints lol.

      @crash override yet they take more from the Feds than anyone else. California is leading black hole when it comes to federal welfare. So sure they put one into the pot but take 12.

  3. Trump sounds like he has never read a book in is life – Sam Harris

    • @Charless You are being fooled into hating President Trump for personal gain by Democrats. Go check out some Brandon Tatum so you can read some actual facts.

    • Read this in Trump’s voice: “I’ve read so many books. I have read more books than anyone you have met. I am probably the president who read most books in the history of this country. I have read books you never read before. Believe me I have read many many books.”

  5. Europeans who know a little about the rise of Fascism in the 1930s are feeling a bit nervous right now. From an outside perspective, he is mad as a badger and just as unfit to lead what used to be a well respected world power. Strength and solidarity to those in the US campaining to oust him.
    EDIT: just got to the point where he sobs. This man truly cares about his country.

  6. Now who the hell would want to reelect him after he wanted to ‘dominate’ the society

      You realize he helped lie us into a needless war that cost us thousands of soldiers lives, trillions of dollars and has lasted near twenty years, right?

    Powell was a part of the atrocities and war crimes committed by George W Bush.

  12. Colin Powell who sided with Cheney- agreeing that there were weapons of mass distruction in Iraq, is now calling out Trump for lying? Wow, CNN you can really pick them. No wonder your ratings are falling.

    Far out! There’s that nice gentleman who lied us into Iraq. Thanx for helping us get to this point, sir.

  14. So Powell can inject himself into relevance and convince Joe Biden to enlist him as a VP. That’s sexist.

  15. At least Trump never lied to the UN to start a war of aggression.

  16. So Powell who sold us a bill of goods of WMD in Iraq. So his credibility is shot. Joe Biden? Really?

    I am extremely disappointed,in Colin Powell.He has chosen America’s enemies!

  18. “Even more troubling, the Congress would sit there and not in any way resist what the President is doing.” Well, the House impeached him. Where were you then, General?

    Um…isnt he the one who paved the way for the war in Iraq by lying about WMD’s?
