Ronald Reagan, former President would be “heartbroken” & “horrified”by current state of affairs of America under President Donald Trump.
In an interview with Yahoo news, Patti Davis, daughter of Reagan criticized Trump’s presidency & Republican Party sharply saying Trump endangers American democracy by assaulting Constitution.
“What would you think (Reagan) would think about this moment?”
Patti replied to Zainab Salbi, host of Yahoo News’ “Through Her Eyes”, by saying
“I think he would be horrified. I think he would be heartbroken because he loved this country a lot, and he believed in this country. There are crickets (from Republicans) when Trump keeps assaulting the Constitution. The Republican Party now — particularly the Republicans in this government — are just sitting by the sidelines and letting the Trump administration destroy this country. I mean they don’t say anything, they don’t stand up to him”
Patti also took aim at trade mark slogan of Trump “Make America Great Again” which was used by her father first.
“I think it’s taken on, obviously, a completely different meaning because what it seems to mean now is ‘let’s make America white again & racist again and small-minded again”
Referring that, she is not a Republican criticizing how GOP operates today;
“It bears no resemblance to the Republican Party of my father’s time”
Ronald Reagan’s Daughter, Patti Davis, on the GOP: “There’s no resemblance to the Republican party of my father’s time.” She also talks about her rebellious 20’s, her complicated relationship with her mother, and her new book, The Wrong Side of Night.
