Trump Is 'So Damn Un-American,' Says CNN Commentator

Even though President Donald Trump has pushed for an "America first" agenda, the White House still gets pushback from media sources calling his bluff. A CNN political commentator on Wednesday called Trump extremely "un-American" during one segment.

On a segment called "Trump's Worldview" on CNN, the host asked his panel to look at a list Trump has publicly attacked in the last 48 hours, including Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Bill McRaven and Congressman Adam Schiff.

The network said Trump hadn't attacked Saudi Arabia in the last couple of days, asking CNN political commentator Ana Navarro if she could explain the president's omission of the pivotal country in the Middle East.

"Well, I can't explain it because I think we are in one of the most shameful moments in American history," Navarro said. "And I hope more and more of Republicans, somehow, are able to to get the spines they have donated to science back, and act up and stand up and speak up against these abuses of power by this president."

Navarro, who lives in Miami, said she lives in a community with exiles from Latin American countries like Venezuela, Nicaragua and nearby Cuba, who peresevered "human rights abuses."

"What we are seeing from Donald Trump, is what these strongmen in those countries do," Navarro added. "[They] go after their opponents and try to fabricate prosecution, try to penalize, punish and make their opponents hurt. I'm not saying he kills them. I'm not saying he beats them up. But certainly, prosecution is a weapon he would use to extract pain from people that oppose him.

"It is so damn un-American, that it leaves me speechless that this would happen in America."

Of course, Trump and his feud with CNN is nothing new. The president has called the network "fake news" on multiple occasions dating back to his 2016 campaign. And more recently, the White House pulled the press credentials of CNN's White House reporter Jim Acosta. This has made its way into the court system to let the judges decide whether or not it's a violation of the First Amendment.

The remarks were sparked by the question surrounding the death of Washington Post correspondent Jamal Khashoggi, who was murdered in Turkey. The White House released a lengthy statement on the Khashoggi murder Tuesday, including this:

"The crime against Jamal Khashoggi was a terrible one, and one that our country does not condone. Indeed, we have taken strong action against those already known to have participated in the murder. After great independent research, we now know many details of this horrible crime. We have already sanctioned 17 Saudis known to have been involved in the murder of Mr. Khashoggi, and the disposal of his body."
