Washington, D.C. – November 14, 2016 – According to the Democratic Coalition Against Trump, in a video resurfaced by the Democratic Coalition Against Trump, Reince Priebus, chief-of-staff for President-elect Trump, can be heard referring to the “execution” of Obama three times while giving an interview during his time as Chair of the Wisconsin Republican Party. The link to the video can be found here. At the end, Priebus was corrected by a reporter who determined he had meant to refer to Osama bin Laden the three times that he used President Obama’s name instead.
“To confuse the President of the free world with the most wanted terrorist in American history not once, but three separate times, just proves where Mr. Priebus’ head was at,” said Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor to the coalition. “The people that President-elect Trump has chosen to surround himself with so far are people who have worked their entire careers to divide our country,” Dworkin continued, “I’m sitting at the edge of my seat to see how the President-elect still plans to unite us.”
