Are you surprised Trump fired acting attorney general Yates?


Trump fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates, an Obama administration holdover, after she said in a message to staff on Monday that the president’s order was not consistent with the Justice Department’s “solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right.” She added that, “I am not convinced that the defense of the Executive Order is consistent with these responsibilities nor am I convinced that the Executive Order is lawful.”

    Lisa, President Trump needs people that are pulling for the same plan. President Obama had all of his people and not those of President GW Bush. Once again the Acting AG was an appointee, and president Trump could have replaced her for any reason.

    Your response is a breath of reality in a sea of falsehoods. So many liberals have no idea what they're talking about and respond with emotion instead of facts. I always find their ignorance so annoying. Good answer!
