Senior former official lashes out at Trump and elects camp Biden
A former high-ranking employee of the Trump administration has lashed out at the way the president is running the country. Miles Taylor was a civil servant and chief of staff of the Department of Homeland Security between 2017 and 2019.
Taylor writes that Trump used the Department to gain political benefits. “He wanted us to focus almost exclusively on issues that were important to his reelection, such as building a border wall with Mexico.”
According to the official, the president’s “inappropriate and often absurd” requests resulted in ministry employees regularly having no time to deal with “serious security matters.” “In the morning you could expect an order to stop funding foreign allies because they had angered Trump and in the evening, for example, he requested that the sharp points on top of the border wall be sharpened so they could do more damage.”
