Gregg Popovich Says President Donald Trump Is A "Soulless Coward"

Gregg Popovich Says President Donald Trump Is A

"This has of course been a common practice of his, but to do it in this manner - to lie about how previous presidents responded to the death of soldiers - is as low as it gets".

He said the election's results gave him a sick stomach in November after Trump was elected. We have a pathological liar in the White House: unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically to hold this office and the whole world knows it, especially those around him every day.

At an impromptu press conference in the White House Rose Garden Monday, Trump claimed that former President Obama and other past presidents didn't call the families of USA service members who had died.

Popovich has been a vocal Trump critic since the president assumed the Oval Office. He has mused openly about whether America is an empire in decline akin to Rome, and how Donald Trump seems to think the presidency is "a game show." Trump also said in a Monday press conference, "A lot of [former presidents] didn't make calls". "That's what I was told". "President Obama engaged families of the fallen and wounded warriors throughout his presidency through calls, letters, visits to Section 60 at Arlington, visits to Walter Reed, visits to Dover, and regular meetings with Gold Star Families at the White House and across the country". "But I like, I like the combination of - I like, when I can, the combination of a call and also a letter".

Trump later said that he thinks Obama "did sometimes [call], and sometimes he didn't, I don't know, that's what I was told". A five-time NBA champion with San Antonio, he has added the title of head coach of the USA national team, taking over from Mike Krzyzewski, and will lead it into the 2020 Olympic Games.

So it was no surprise to see an interviewwith Popovich after the same Donald J. Trump produced one of the more grotesque lies in a years-long line of them Monday.

Of those who work under the president, Popovich said they are all aware of how unfit Trump is and that that, "This is their shame most of all".

Popovich graduated from the Air Force Academy and served in active duty in the 1970s operating spy satellites during the Cold War and going on goodwill missions playing for the Armed Forces basketball team in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. Just a few weeks ago, Popovich criticized the president for calling out NFL owners to fire players who kneel during the national anthem.
