Dem Rep Crowley: People Around the World ‘Frightened’ by Trump ‘Regime’ Military ‘Junta’ Style

Friday at the House Democratic Retreat in Baltimore, House Democratic Caucus Chair Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) said millions of Americans and people around the world are “frightened” by the “Trump regime,” who have “appointed several former generals,” which is “junta-like.”

Crowley said, “You know, these are millions and millions of Americans, people around the world who are really concerned, maybe that’s an understatement. They’re nervous. They’re frightened about what they see happening to the American government. And this Trump regime—I don’t call it an administration, I call it a regime. That’s how they act. They have appointed several former generals, that’s very junta-like to the rest of the world. They have billionaires who have been appointed to cabinet positions, some of whom have no experience whatsoever in the field in which they are now in charge. That’s very frightening to people.”

“Cronyism at the highest levels has many people in this country nervous and around the world as well,” he continued. “So I think there’s going to be plenty of opportunities in the future, unfortunately, for the American people to express themselves, and I think we as Democrats will be able to support that effort when we believe it’s warranted.”
