Have Democrats Broken America’s Justice System?

Newsom Labels Trump as ‘Compromised’ and ‘More Erratic’ Than Before

On a recent Friday, California’s Governor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, didn’t hold back in his critique of former President Donald Trump, suggesting that Trump’s behavior has become increasingly erratic, especially with the growing possibility of a November electoral face-off against former President Joe Biden.

In a conversation with MSNBC’s Alex Wagner, Newsom expressed his viewpoint, saying, “In the primaries, he seems unbeatable, but when it comes to the general elections, I view him as the most problematic candidate I’ve ever seen. He’s essentially a compromised figure.”

Newsom continued, “His ability to captivate the audience isn’t what it used to be. His actions are more erratic than before, and without a doubt, he’s become more radical and poses a greater risk on a variety of issues.”

Moreover, Newsom earlier criticized the Republicans in Congress for aligning too closely with Trump’s policies, particularly regarding the U.S. southern border.

“It’s appalling, the stance the Republican Party and Donald Trump are taking,” Newsom commented in another discussion with Wagner on Thursday. “It’s all there for everyone to see. He makes a statement or posts on his platform, suggesting drastic actions, and the response from the Republicans is incredibly weak. It’s astonishingly weak.”

Senator Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, communicated to his GOP colleagues that achieving border security reforms along with aid for Ukraine is becoming more challenging than anticipated. He also mentioned that Trump’s opposition could likely derail any agreement on border security.

McConnell even proposed separating the funding for Ukraine from the border security reforms, which Newsom found disheartening, accusing McConnell of “capitulating completely.”

Newsom also criticized the current Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson from Louisiana, for his apparent disinterest in reaching a compromise. “They’re not looking for a deal at all,” Newsom concluded.

In a recent communication to his colleagues, Speaker Johnson indicated that if the rumors about the terms of the proposed deal were accurate, it would have been “dead on arrival” in the House, highlighting the challenges in reaching a consensus on border security and Ukraine aid.
