White House Stands by Trump’s ‘Human Scum’ Comment, Never-Trumpers ‘Deserve Strong Language Like That’

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham defended President Donald Trump’s tweet in which he called Never-Trump Republicans “human scum” during an appearance on Fox & Friends on Thursday.

Grisham said that the Republicans who have been working against him, often with the Democrats, “deserve strong language like that.”

“The people who are against him, and who have been against him and working against him since the day they took office are just that,” Grisham said. “It is horrible that people are working against a president who’s delivering results for this country and has been since day one.”

“The fact that people continue to try and negate anything that he’s doing and take away from the good work he’s doing on behalf of the American people, they deserve strong language like that,” Grisham added.

In a series of tweets on Wednesday, President Trump had said that the “Never Trumper Republicans” are in some ways worse and more dangerous to this nation than Democrats.

“The Never Trumper Republicans, though on respirators with not many left, are in certain ways worse and more dangerous for our Country than the Do Nothing Democrats. Watch out for them, they are human scum!” Trump tweeted.

The president also expressed frustration with people who oppose him being hired by his administration.
