Dem Rep Ryan: Trump Is ‘Not the President — He’s the King of Chaos’

Friday on CNN’s “New Day,” while discussing President Donald Trump’s reported reference to “shithole countries,” Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) called Trump the “king of chaos.”

Ryan said, “When we were home over holiday break the one word I heard more than anything else was ‘exhausted,’ you know, people are just so exhausted, you know, he’s not the president. He’s the king of chaos, really.”

He added, “There’s all this drama around the president. It seems like every day he’s insulting. He’s dividing. And I think what we saw with this comment yesterday, I think, reveals to a lot of people, you know, if you’re not a billionaire, you don’t live in a gold-plated Trump Tower, you’re somehow inferior.”

When asked if the president has a “pattern of racism” Ryan said, “I don’t think there’s any question about it. I don’t take any joy in saying it. It’s sad that he’s the president of the United States.”
